Update!

Here are some pictures of the new trailer I picked up. It's a Gatormade 6.5' x 16'. I think I'm going to sell my smaller 6.5' x 12' trailer. - Mike

BIG Update!

So here's a BIG update! I sold my Scag Pro V.. I didn't really want to sell it, but a friend of mine offered me a good dollar. Anyways, I found a good deal on craigslist and went out and got it. It's a 1996 New Holland LX565 skid steer. It came with a bucket and forks. The tires and foam filled, but they are pretty bald so I'm probably going to get some new ones. Oh, and I'm also going to look at a Scag 52" Wildcat with bagger tonight. - Mike

Bringing home the new holland. (Yes I know I need to cut the straps down)

Yeah, I'd say you need some new tires, but depending what you paid and how many hours are on it you could make out good on it.

I am not sure that trailer is heavy enough for that type of equipment.

A family friend is building a house in the next few years, so I am going to slowly start clearing the lot. I'll be able to use it on some tear-out jobs too. - Mike

What makes you say that? The trailer itself is 7,000 GVWR. The trailer worked fine for the 150 mile trip home? The trailer isn't specifically made for hauling skid steers all day, but for the once or twice a month that I'm going to move mine it will work fine. and yes, I know the gate is not strong enough. I'm taking it to the welding shop next week to have it reinforced. - Mike
