Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sean Great Purchase
Came shipped on a pallet – shipping company dropped off with lift gate truck right outside of my garage – that’s a real plus.
Opened the box and unpacked everything. Installation was a breeze if your familiar with the use of basic hand tools and can be done with 1 person. All in all it took about and hour and a half. That includes the side rails and the ball coupler which I tow behind my Suzuki Vinson.
I broke it in over the weekend with a friend of mine – we moved about a half of cord of fire wood in about 3 trips.
Trailer was very sturdy, the terrain was rough, but the pivoting axles made easy work going over rocks and smaller logs on the forest floor. The trailer has a wide stance which was great for carrying loads on an angle. You do need to be careful when your pulling up steep hills – I would not recommend carrying any passengers just due to that fact that weigh can shift in the trailer and chances are your going to be towing more then the weight of your ATV. Overall I’m very happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend it to someone. It’s a great sturdy product. – I’m very pleased..

Trailer is well made for around property. It carries a lot of equipment behind 4 wheeler and tractor. Works well on skid roads but because tires sit substantially wider than my two four wheelers wouldn't expect it to work on four wheeler trails.
Dual tire per side makes for smooth carry as the pivotal nature of design rides over obstacles.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WildBoarRanch Good....Not Quite Great
Good Quality but Very Expensive. You can probably find a comparible brand cheaper if you look hard enough. This is a well built unit though.
You build it, not too complicated there, a couple hours with common tools.
The unit is a little smaller with a lower profile than I imagined, and i purchased the larger unit (22 CU. FT.). As a note, I also purchased the model with the Tandem wheels. It is a myth that the unit can be filled, and disconnected from the ATV without spilling it's contents. The unit must be connected to the hitch to remail upright.
I also purchased the cover, but save your money. You can't use it while trailering as it will blow off, and there are no tie down points. Also, if its on the trailer, and it rains, the water will pool in the middle of the cover, leak inside, and collapse in. Not sure there is any real value here with the cover...save a few bucks and buy a tarp.

I used it this weekend and it met all my expectations. It was easy to put together, easy to load and easy to dump.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosebob Built like a tank
Assembly was easy, all the parts fit, instructions are easy to follow. I assembled it in 45 minutes. I have 80 acres and need a cart to tow behind my ATV to maintain the far corners of the property. I installed a ball hitch which works fine.
Within 48 hours of delivery of the cart I had moved at least 2 tons of rock. I read a lot of reviews of various other carts and the Polar TA 1500 got consistently good reviews. After using it for 2 weeks I can confirm that it’s built like a tank, and works as advertised. The tandem wheel configuration rides smoothly and confidently over rough terrain.
The Polyethylene deck doesn’t dent and minimizes noise. It’s more expensive than most other carts I looked at, but it’s worth the money. All material is heavy duty quality. The bolts are large and made of stainless steel. I’m sure I’ll get many trouble-free years out of it.
I have two minor issues. The first is the dumping function. To get the cart to dump cleanly you need to dump downhill. If you dump on flat ground the load won’t clear the cart and you’ll have to shovel or rake out the load. Fortunately the Polyethylene deck is pretty slick and you can rake it out easily. The second issue is delivery. They deliver to the street. My driveway is nearly a quarter of a mile long. Fortunately my neighbor was there to hauled the boxed cart to my house in the loader of his tractor otherwise I would have had to assemble it at the foot of the driveway in the rain.
Bottom line: it’s built like a tank.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoveTools Very satisfied.
Well designed, easy to put together, sturdy/quality parts, especially at this very reasonable price. Nice, roomy, and strong bed. Just light enough that in a pinch (tight turns, parking it in garage, etc.) I can lift/scoot the entire trailer into position.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kbkd good product
Great trailer, holds a lot of wood. We also bought the side rack kit which helps keep the wood in the cart over rough terrain. The only problem we have had is that one of the lynch pins has come out twice and the tire has come off.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GardenGirl Much to like, but not perfect
This 22 cubic foot tandem trailer is a workhorse. The quality is very good and we expect it to last for years. The tandem wheels make for smooth travail over our rough terrain. Those are the pros.
The cons are that the tilt mechanism doesn't release easily, and modification will have to be made for it to be used. Also, the angle of the rear portion makes it difficult, even when tilted, to empty. It needs a drop for it to empty easily with the tilt. Disappointing as I thought my frequent emptying would be made easier with this unit over the garden trailer that has a removable gate that I could rake and sweep out.
