I thought 10" was a dumb question, but that tractor makes it look so small.

My dealer was thinking that I would want to have a 16' trailer, but if I am going to put the harley rake on at the same time, and broadcast speader, I will use up every bit of 18' of a trailer.

CONGRATULATIONS! Looks fantastic. I can't wait for a group photo of all the equipment. Did you get a new contract that you needed the tractor for or will you be drumming up some work?

Off topic... how many miles do you have on the 2500? Looks great.

No contract, just got sick of spending 1-2 hours each morning/night picking up/dropping off the skid steer when I needed it and having to pay full price for using it for 10 minutes. It should drum up plenty of work and will stay plenty busy.
The 2500HD has 16,000 miles on it, a little over for the lease but I will do GM's pull ahead program 8 months ahead of its turn in date and should be fine with the miles, plus, I wont always have to move the big equipment with the HD now that I have the dump (or atleast when it comes back from having the body put on )

I concur on the 20'. 18" is about 6" too short. I bought my first tractor when I realized that I had been spending $16,000 per year renting the things...
