Reference Section: ATV Spray/Flatbed Trailer

My home-built ATV/UTV spray/flatbed trailer, for use while being towed by my ATV. I needed a sturdy, rugged, high-clearance trailer to tow my spray equipment behind my ATV with, in order to keep the weeds down around my Grandfather's farm where I couldn't reach with tractors and plows. It needed to be able to spray from a nozzle array behind the trailer, as well as allowing for spray wand use for hard-to-reach areas.

This trailer has a removable spray tank & assemblies, so I can use it as a flatbed trailer or to carry other equipment as needed. The majority of the undercarriage pieces and bits came from items I had on hand already, while the tires & wheels came from a couple of old non-functioning riding lawnmowers I found on my Grandfather's property (the rest of the mowers were scrapped; they were in sorry shape).

The large wheel on the left is one of the riding lawnmower rear drive wheels that will go on this trailer; the tires that came off of the trailer are on the right to contrast the size difference. I've started making some lift blocks and other bits for the new suspension lift.

Protect Your Family Silver State Specialties was created in 1999 to offer quality resin accessories, replacement parts and conversion kits, suitable for many 1/25-scale plastic model kits.  SSS specializes in accessories and parts for plastic model pickup, SUV, 4x4, and heavy truck & trailer kits.  1/32-scale and 1/35-scale parts and accessories will be available in the future for model truck kits, such as the 1/32 Monogram Snap-Tite and ERTL snap-together kits, as well as 1/35-scale Revell, Italeri, AFV Club, Trumpeter, Airfix, Heller, Tamiya, and other military model truck kits.  Some of these smaller scale model kits are quite well detailed, and a wide variety of photo-etched, resin, and other accessories are widely available for most of these military truck model kits. What's even more exciting is the line of 1/24th & 1/25th-scale military model kits and conversions we are in the early stages of developing, to nicely compliment your ERTL, AMT, Italeri, Revell, and other brands of truck models.

Silver State Specialties is working on resin accessories and complete kits for G- gauge outdoor garden railway trains ("Large Scale") in 1/24th-scale. Some patterns have been completed, and many more are under construction. These kits and accessories will include complete Beyer-Garratt style of locomotives and Narrow Gauge ore hopper cars, as well as 24-inch & 30-inch gauge industrial equipment in this same scale.

SSS also has master patterns partially completed for many 1/16-scale model truck accessories and conversion kits, mainly for the Monogram-Revell 1/16-scale model truck kits.  Some projected accessories for these 1/16-scale kits are front drive axles, different wheels and tires, air cleaner accessories, pusher and tag axles, oil filters and engine accessories, and possibly different engines.  Cab & hood conversion kits remain a possibility for these monsters as well, but are still years away from being offered as there are more pressing projects to push forward with first.  But someday they should be available!
