I really fancy getting one of these and just love your trailer. May I ask how much it cost to build?

The trailer cost £1k and I bought it from the guy who is now the UK distributor for woodland mills Chris Pearce.

It's fully galvanised with 750kg indespension units.

I had to do a few additions, removable wheel arches, ramps. electric winch. mill locking down system for when on the move, the only thing that holds the mill on the rails is gravity and at a weight of 350kg you don't want it dropping off as you pull away.
