The MUTS Trailer certainly fits the old quote “Necessity is the mother of invention”. 

Muts trailers began in 2002 as a personal needs project.
Living on 62 acres of extremely rough and rocky land on the Canadian Shield in Bancroft Ontario, the owner, Larry Edgar realized that the trailers for sale at that time were inadequate for his needs. They had very limited functionality and he  could not afford to buy dedicated equipment such as a box trailer and log skidder.

Always willing to experiment Larry began designing a more versatile trailer by combining a dump feature and log skidding ability on the same carriage. With no skill or ability to fabricate with metal Larry would go to his mechanic to have his ideas welded together.


When friends suggested he had a product worth selling Larry decided to give it a try. The first few years were challenging but Larry persevered. After taking a welding course and buying some basic tools he began making trailers in his garage. If he was going to have a successful business then the trailers needed to be dependable as well as versatile so much field testing was done to ensure the trailers would stand up to a lot of rough use.

Larry very quickly out grew the garage and decided to have the MUTS manufactured overseas. The results were very nearly disastrous for the business. By now Larry was convinced that he had a really good product so instead of shutting down, went out and found a manufacturer in Guelph Ontario and more recently in Madoc Ontario to produce the trailers to his specifications.

Quality, versatility, and service are the foundation of the MUTS trailer business today with sales throughout North America, parts of Europe and as far away as New Zealand.

With the rapid increase in ATV, UTV, and compact tractor use many people are looking for suitable implements for small scale landscaping, flower and vegetable plots and general hobby farm work. The MUTS trailer fits very nicely into this niche area with its many features.

 The MUTS is still a work in progress as Larry is constantly making improvements and developing new accessories to make the MUTS the most versatile, made in Canada, pull behind ATV utility trailer available today.
Work is currently under way to develop skis and a manure spreader for the MUTS to make it an even more versatile product.

The MUTS is 37″ to the top of the box making it a low profile and very stable trailer. The pulley mast can be removed or rotated into the box in seconds to give the entire trailer that low profile.

 Made from high quality North American materials.

The MUTS box is made from 16 gauge galv-annealed automotive steel containing rust inhibitors with a hard, microscopically rough surface to which the powder coat can adhere to extremely well giving it excellent wear and rust resistance characteristics.

The bolt together approach allows the trailer to be shipped at lower cost with less potential damage during transport. The assembled trailer can flex without breaking any welds. Damaged components can be removed and repaired or replaced keeping maintenance costs low. Some parts can be removed to accommodate specific user needs. All nuts have nylon inserts so they will not vibrate loose.

The polyester rope is user friendly. It will not cut your hands if frayed and will not bind in the drum like wire rope.
