Trojan LT7

It's clear that Trojan knows what the groundsman wants. A 7 x 4 single-axle trailer, the LT7 is fully road legal but performs superbly on grass. The unit has a full-width loading ramp and a roping rail exactly where you need it.

This trailer is perfect for carrying a small ride-on mower or similar. What’s more, mesh-panels can be fitted for the transport of chippings and clippings.
Like its ancient namesake, this Trojan is strong. The manufacturer tells us the trailer is assembled, minus the floor, and hot-dip galvanised so all the welds and drainage holes are protected. Then the phenolic resin-impregnated floor is added. This trailer is just below the limit at which brakes are required.
Weighing 270kg empty and with wide tyres for running off-road when needed, the LT7 will carry 480kg. The ramp on the model we inspect appears steep, but an extended tail version is available to give a reduced slope.
“It’s good for estate use, grounds care and one-man businesses,” our tester comments.
On-road use is smooth, thanks to the Avonride independent suspension.
