I bought a 18' 7000lb and it was 2500. They had a 18' 10000lb that had corner jacks on the back for loading and I thought it was 3200. Mayes Trailers in Indy.

Most companies will change out the axles to meet your needs if not call me.

Check out Saladin Trailer Sales, they sell Corn Pro and they are a tuff built trailer. They can build it to suit you. And he may have one in stock. They have 4 different stores. Had a 20' and a single axle 14' Corn Pro and they were good trailers. Thats what I would have bought but I needed a new trailer right now and had to go look. And they didn't have a 18' in stock and would take 3 weeks to build it for me.

if you only change out the axels then there are other weak spots to the trailer. I am looking for one that is truely rated for 10,000 :weightlifter:

About all of the pole barn crews around us run the Corn Pro for their skid steers. My 7000lb PJ is not built as good as the 7000lb Corn Pro I had.

Just an FYI, 5200lb axles actually only cost maybe $50 more per axle than the 3500lb axles. Some dealers will charge you an extra $500+ for a trailer with the 5200lb axles, even though it only costs them $100 extra, so you can see the mark up.

This PJ can have 5.2k axles on 16' and up models. The 3 PJ trailers that I have had have all been excellent.

I bought a 20 foot with two 7000lb axles for $3300 from my local guy who does trailers for me. Electric brakes and all. Shop around and you'll find someone who can do what you need.

I live very close to PJ, Big Tex, Diamond C, etc. NE Tx is the largest trailer mfg area in North America. I ordered a trailer a few weeks ago. Although it wasn't from one of the big mfg. I priced all of the big names first and everyone was about 7 to 10 days on build times. So they are not as back logged right now as they will be in a few months.

A sixteen foot with 5k axles is going to be a custom build most likely. Even here with the sea of never ending trailers I've not seen one less than 18 foot with the 5k's. There is a very lightly used Diamond C trailer on Dallas craigslist with 5k axles 16 foot, but it has 4 foot sides. http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/grd/2112938836.html

Yeah, that's where I ordered mine. I've had 3 of their trailers. I usually trade every couple of seasons because I can do that cheaper here than renovation due to all the competition.

$800-$600 cheaper than the big name brands with the same or better quality. A smaller company with very nice people to deal with. They let me order and send a set of Extreme Trimmer racks to them and weld them on the trailer.

Tiger will sell customer direct. He would have to drive down here to get it though because they have no dealers farther north than Arkansas. They are in Mt. Pleasant just a few miles down the road from Big Tex on I-30.

I know this is a long ways away from where you are looking but Becks Trailers in St. Johns Mi builds trailers in house can build a custom trailer to your needs. had a 16' 7000 brakes on both axles and a few other things for around 2000 dollars. pretty sure they can build a 10000 trailer for you

I have just the trailer you are talking about. Mine is a 16' 10,000# GVWR CornPro with tube rail around it and a side load gate and full gates on the back. The trailer is a couple years old and has held up unbelievably. Search for their website and you can see some of the models they have and a list of dealers.

i google cornpro and found their site, however, it looks like all trailers with that raing do not have rails to them. do you recall what the cost of yours was?

no dont quote me but im pretty sure its around 2000-2500 dollars depending on what you get. They are located about 35 miles north of lansing Mi on us 127. www.888saybecks.com is the website. if you call ask for dan in sales tell him brandon carpenter from going green lawn care sent you.

It was somewhere right around 3000. I did my shopping at the time and decided for the money I couldn't find another trailer that would compare to it. Mine is a UT-16L with tube rail and side ramp.

I looked at their website as well and saw they didn't show exactly what you were talking about but I can assure you that they made mine and it wasn't anything custom. Maybe try asking your dealer??

I don't have one now but have had 3 over the years and will put the Corn Pro up against any trailer out there. They are a well built heavy duty trailer. The 7000 PJ I have now is nothing like the 7000lb Corn Pro I had 10 years ago.
