Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CurleyQueue Incredibly Beefy Trailer
This trailer is huge, I mean like bathtub sized would be putting it mildly. Really tough construction all square tubing frame with lag bolt connections. Fat tires that look like it would be no problem to go anywhere my quad can go. Assembly was very easy and took about a half an hour.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RockGardener Awesomely useful trailer
I have little to add that other reviewers have not said already This trailer is well designed and well constructed. Assembly was a breeze. For most people it does come on a pallet, delivered to your location. Home Depot's carrier was excellent - no damage and the driver easily helped me transfer the pallet to the my trailer (their truck would not be able to go up our driveway.
I slid the box off the pallet and opened it right on my trailer and assembly was easily accomplished right on top of the carton, which I used as a pad. The instructions are clear and simple - though it's not a step-by-step like many things. The pictures are easy to follow though, and it took about 40 minutes for me to do, being slow and methodical.
It's really awesome behind the ATV. I've just finished a lot of brush clearing on an acre and now have to collect all the small trimmings and rotten wood. This is a huge benefit for taking a large amount of debris down the hill with each trip, especially compared with the efffort required for a wheelbarrow or a hand-hauled wagon. The capacity is immense, especially when enhanced with the optional rack sides (see my review of that product also).
I'm looking forward to using this to move a bunch of excess drain rock elsewhere, it's the perfect tool for moving soil etc. (which is now another project of mine to complete now that I have this trailer!)
This is truly a "right tool for the job" - it's well built and will last. I did get mine with the recommendation of a friend, plus all the positive reviews here and elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buck As good as it gets
If anyone can manufacture a better trailer than Polar can, I would like to know about it. This is one terrific product. If I can assemble it in 30 minutes, most can do it in 20 minutes. I have filled the bed to the top with fire wood and hauled it out of my pasture. This trailer is so smooth and quiet, I barely knew I was hauling anything. The hitch probably works fine with just the pin but I would recommend getting the Polar Trailer 2 in. ball coupler kit. The employees of Polar should feel good about themselves for manufacturing such quality products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB Super strong, large capacity and easy to assemble
I almost bought the typical metal trailer you see everywhere when I stumbled across the Polar offerings. I'm so glad I chose this trailer.
It's got plenty of capacity and is really well built. Assembling it couldn't have been any easier.
So far I've used it to haul brush (stacked at least 6' over the top, tied down with a strap) into the woods and granite out of the woods.
I wasn't able to lift some of the granite high enough to get it over the sides and safely place it inside, so for the biggest pieces I had to roll them into the trailer when it was in the dump position and then struggle to lower the trailer back to level.
I've put massive rocks in it with no issues. The plastic shell is strong enough to hold anything you can lift. I had it filled with stone.
The dumping action is great. A simple lever that locks into place is real easy to open and close.
I could nit pick about a couple of issues with the bolts, (like not being galvanized), but this trailer is already making my life much easier!
I got it sooner than expected. Shipped the next day. Freight carrier requires one day for scheduling, so don't expect it on the day your shipping notice estimates. They call you and set up a date at least the day after.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by amd344 heavy duty and lightweight utility trailer
Assembled easily. Trailer has great clearance- same as my Polaris Sportsman which will be towing it. It's lightweight so atv's tow capacity isn't partially used up by excessive trailer weight and it's a snap to move around by hand, though its also rugged - I've been hauling tons of gravel onto my house site for several days now. I don't know how well the plastic cargo bed will hold up to extreme cold yet. Frame is larger diameter than many other trailers I looked at. One negative feature is the "scooped" back end. Don't expect to dump a load of fill and pull away. You have to pull every bit of fill out with a hoe, rake etc... So if you're shopping for a trailer to haul gravel, soil, sand etc. you might want to look for a design with a removable tailgate. Also, it is pricey (as are any of the better quality models) - I paid less for my new 4x8 road use trailer with much more steel, lights, included ball coupler,and road tires.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by acer Great Trailer
I bought this trailer to use behind my Polaris Sportsman 850. First thing I did when I took it out of the box was take one of the short bolts and one large bolt and run to a local tractor supply store and replace all the bolts with grade 8 and add lock washers to each one. I also added more large washers on all the bolts. The bolts they supplied just are not worth it to me. I also added the 2" ball hitch it pulls so much better with it. This thing is built well and the welds are great. One other thing I did was add run flat tubes to the tires just for added security. Worth the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tsckey Polar Trailer
Purchased to haul wood and wood debris around our five acres of forested land. The trailer serves that need very well. The fat tires float over the rocks and ruts with ease behind our ATV. Time will tell, but the trailer appears to be very tough and capable of standing up to the abuse it is getting.

STURDY, EASY TO PUT TOGETHER, I USE IT FOR HAULING STUFF AROUND WOODED ACREAGE BEHIND ATV, SIDES LOW ENOUGH TO LIFT HEAVY ROCKS OR WOOD ROUNDS INTO TRAILER, NICELY BALANCED, I GOT IT FOR $429 FREE SHIPPING PLUS ADDED TRAILER HITCH OPTION LATER
