I needed a way to haul tools around the homestead with the atv instead of just on the racks. So I took an old ( read thick) 55 gal barrel that was cut in half for another project and welded a hitch and simple axle on it. So for it is perfect for small jobs of carrying fencing supplies, chainsaw/ accessories and I'm sure many more things in the future.

Ok looks like I mislabeled a picture so instead of editing I will just explain that I also used this trailer to move a caged raccoon across the homestead.

Its a great concept.
If it gets cold you can light a fire in it.
