ATV Dump Cart

I live in the mountains of north Georgia and the 500 is my first UTV and I absolutely love it. It's strong enough and fast enough to keep me moving and excited on our many mountain trails.


I promised my wife that if she let me buy the 500 that I would use it both for work and pleasure. To live up to half of my promise I need to purchase a dump trailer to haul lots of cut brush, wood, some stones and lots of gardening paraphernalia.


I know the towing capacity of the 500 is rated at 1,000 lbs. I'm requesting any advice on a reliable choice in this area? After much research, I'm tending toward an Ohio Steel 12.5 CF Poly Swivel ATV Dump Cart for its versatility, dependability and the non-rusting cart body.


Any suggestions from experienced UTV haulers would be much appreciated.

Utility Trailer 4'x8' - Heavy Duty Folding Utility Trailer


I pull one of these with my Rancher loaded with firewood. I built a nice base with 24" sideboards.


299 plus about 100 worth of wood, done.


Doesn't dump though.


I have a sears version of that cart you have. Probably not identical but the dump mechanism is junk! It jams, randomly dumps at times(which is a pain when its loaded). You are looking at a lawn tractor cart.


Get a serious trailer to load up!

For my needs those lawnmower trailers would never last. I have a homemade non dumping trailer I use all the time. If I was going to buy one it would be probably something like these.

Sportsman guide has one like this.




Northern tool has a little heavier duty one.

make sure you go quality, a cheap trailer will fall apart on you...

my little 300 dollar harbor freight job has been dragged through the woods more miles than I can count loaded with wood. Haven't had any trouble with it.


I'm not sure I would trust it to haul down the highway.

Thanks much for all your input. You made me realize that I was going down the wrong path for my needs. Any of the suggested trailers would suit my needs much better since most of my hauling will consist of rotted trees, saplings and brush from our mountain property. As a result I really need a flat trailer with just side railings to haul the loads. I will narrow down my choice from your suggestions. Thanks again.

If your looking to save some money and don't mind a little work you can usually pick up small boat trailers very cheap/free. If the floor was built right it could serve as double duty, hauling the Pioneer and stuff around the place.

Do you have any pictures for examples like this?
