  1. Miska custom built a single axle dump for a pool guy that was running around Halton area for awhile. Guy had it at my house. It was 5x10ft I believe.
  2. Miska built one in the past
  3. There is a rusted p/up dump box for $800 on Kijiji. No pics. Might be be better to buy it and mount on a sturdy flatbed trailer. Or in an old pick up.

    Single axle hybrid trailers reviews

    Thank you for input. It is greatly appreciated. i was looking at the Bullet before. It’s amazing the price difference between Bullet, SnoPro and Triton. I guess different aluminum panels?

    Is that frame rotted out? 2012 Triton? After Solmo review I was thinking pay more for Triton. Now maybe not so much.

    Single axle hybrid trailers reviews

    I previously had a 7’ wide Triton that was 18 long plus the v. I liked it but at that point we used only for ATVs. I had taken a little hiatus from snowmobiling other then shorter cottage trips and ice fishing. I sold it about 5 years ago and wish I had kept it now. But it was a little big for one sled. And does the dealers give good October discounts at the sled show? Or better buying now?
  7. I am looking at purchasing an enclosed single trailer and read in an old thread that a number of guys bought 7’ wide hybrids last year and would like to hear reviews on experience. Leaning towards a 7’ wide as majority of the time I believe I will be trailering one sled only. How do the single axle hybrid such as TC167 or Bullet tow? Better mileage then a traditional 101” wide hybrid? Does the single axle with 2 machine create extra tounge weight? Is loading 2 machines in 7{ wide hybrid a pain in the ass? Is one 3,500lbs single axle better then 2 axles at 2,200lbs each? Should I just go and get a 14ft with 5’ V nose trailer? Towing with a 2017 Dodge Ram with 5.7 hemi. My primary sled is a 2019 Polaris Titan. Big and wide track. Second sled is a 2003 Polaris SKS 700.
  8. I was pulling a 19’ Triton with a 6,000lbs gvwr with a Ford F-150. I went to scales and asked if I required a yellow sticker. I live in Milton and passed the scales every time I towed trailer. They told me yes and that they could ticket me with empty trailer. So I sticker both knowing how many times I passed scale house and mto officers watching for infractions. i was also told in the past that you technically must license your tow vehicle for the combined weight of the truck and trailer. So any truck towing a trailer could be over weight if registered at the 2,990kgs for cheapest plates on the truck. More mud for your discussion.
  9. If the truck and trailer combined gross weight is over 4,500kg you need yellow stickers. Technically any tandem axle trailer needs a yellow sticker.
  10. Crispy I agree about a few things in your post. 1. Take a hit to right the economy. 2. Public sector wage freeze and downsizing is necessary. 3. MTO ain’t never going to be perfect or better. The yellow stickers came about due to a complete lack of respect for motorists on the road by truck owners / trucking companies. Trucks and trailers were unsafe and needed a way to be identified. When commercial businesses tried to hide in enclosed trailers they got dragged into the yellow sticker mess. Who remembers the news of hundreds of trucks getting plates pulled for infractions. No where near as common now.

    Port Sydney conditions

    How is the boat inside the boat house? If that was our boat house the boat would be flattened against the ceiling.

    How Many Groomers/Drags Have Been Moved North?

    That eats a lot of trail permits revenue to move one groomer for X days grooming in a different area.

    How Many Groomers/Drags Have Been Moved North?

    The float move is not that easy in some areas either. If you require a permitted load it is 2 to 3 weeks wait for the permits. And dont forget the cost of a truck to move the groomer. A one way move to northern ontario could be $10,000.00.

    QC puts the hammer down.

    Why doesn’t the government or police in Ontario or Quebec go after the manufacturers/ suppliers of such exhaust? in the USA the EPA went after the manufacturers of diesel truck tuners as they were against the law and the manufacturers who claimed only to be selling for race or off road were selling 100 or more times the number of tuners that would be required for off road.
