Garbage Commander Has Second Patent Pending

February 28, 2019 at 9:37 AM

Having a long steep driveway and getting the larger trash bins to the road was a very time consuming, physical and dangerous task especially in bad weather. I would either lift the cans onto a trailer or try bungeeing the handle around the ball of my receiver hitch to get them out.  After spilling garbage and a couple of falls getting the trash out; I started to think of an easier way to get the job done.  I first worked on a low profile towable wagon that worked, but I still had to fasten them to make sure they didn’t tip off.  After several of prototypes, I started working on using an extended hook that would act as a retainer, holding the handle in place during transportation.  The Hook and swiveling top rail is key to making a smooth trouble-free way to get trash down a winding steep driveway. The final design is patented and comes in two different mounting methods, a receiver-style and ball mounted model.  The receiver-style simply installs into a standard 2” receiver hitch, if you have a 1-1/4” hitch we offer a reducer to convert from the standard 2” to 1-1/4” receivers.  The ball mounted style is great for anyone that already has a ball hitch or wants to leave their trailer hitch in place.  The unit simply slips under a standard 1-7/8” or 2” ball hitch and is pined in place still allowing the cans to pivot around turns during transportation.
