ATV lawn trailer bucket hauler

Modified Haul Master lawn trailer to fit 12 five gallon buckets

Got the ATV lawn trailer base together today.

Seeing it with the wheels helped me to decide that it should be able to handle 12 five gallon buckets.

Being able to haul a dozen buckets makes me want to increase the truck bed bucket limit from 21 to 24. I'm pretty sure I could stack a few buckets near the cab and ratchet strap them down.

Looking at the buckets as they are there you might want to give little room between them, like an inch, so that it is easier to get them in and out. When they are touching it is harder to get that last one in and another inch or two of width doesn't seem to be an issue.
