The guts of the 'Kutter consist of a stout 2 1/4- by 3 1/4-inch C-channel frame and a pair of walking beam "suspensions." Notice that each set of wheels operates independently from the other side's, which allows the smoothest and most level ride possible. On the left side is a rod to support the bed in upright position. Another indication that this trailer is meant for real work is that out of the 13 warning decals on it, eight are meant for a real dump truck. We would've preferred "Off Highway Use Only" on the other stickers, but "off road" is unfortunately still an acceptable term in the heavy-duty world of moving dirt.
