Nice new dodge. Is it a 3500?

No she is a 4500 an easy way to tell is the 4500 and 5500s have a plastic fender in the front that allows the wheels to stick out an extra 3 inches on each side.

Puddle of Oil - We only work in town and tow double trailers for short hops, otherwise we use our F250 w dump insert to tow the truckloader trailer. The truckloader is light enough that we disconnect it from the dump trailer for backing up or manuvering in tight spots.

Nice setup! Why not just mount the loader on the front of the trailer??
Either way i like it. Just figured there was a specific reason. Also i dont think you need a plate on the mini trailer if it has a loader on it. At least in MI you dont! (thats only if the loader stays on the trailer at all times.

Thanks.

In Mass we have to put a plate on anything with tires that is towable. The loader is about 400 lbs and it is better for us to have the flexibility to move it around or tow on a separate truck. Plus the loader with the hose and all would stick out too far on the front of the trailer and crush against any truck we tow with when cornering. Just finishing up our season here....have done 153 cleanups in the last 4 weeks! With the Oct 28 snow storm taking down tons of limbs and trees it has been a hell of a fall......glad its winding down.
