Get real man... you are going to need a little more than two 3500# pound axles to haul a skid steer on. Been there done that. An average skid steer weight 6k-10k.

Oh but with your rediculous amount of posts...you must be right...yea right.
Actually my Cat 248 weighs 7300 lbs w/o an attachment. And it is only a mid-size skid. Look it up. How does it feel to be wrong(I wouldn't know)?

$2200 for lawn mower trailer?? Ouch!

That's not even the point. I don't have a skid...yet. So that's not even in the picture. 2200$..That's a steal for a decked out lawn trailer out here in colorado.

I dunno..maybe you live in the bumf**k boonies where cost of living and cost of equipment is way cheaper, But I'm telling you, a trailer like like here in the Denver Metro area goes for about 4000$ But I'm sure we make way more for our lawn service here in the big CO.. than wherever the hay you are.

Hey Blade i dont know about $4000 but it is probably easily worth $2200 You can buy a regular 1' side 7000# trailer for about 1500 to 1700 new so id say 2200 is fair value

I have recieved about 7 quotes in colorado for a 14 foot tandem axle trailer, w 3 foot sides, trimmer, blower, gas, shovel racks, storage cage, side gate w spring assist, brakes on both axles, bulldog couplers, 83 inch width, and all the goodies...They all had prices of about 4200-4950. I know the big tex 14 foot landscape trailers go for 5 grand out here! So I am seriously thinking about stacking two of em and taking an extra one back...selling it, and getting my trailer for free basically.

$2200 is retail value. A steal of a deal would be your trailer for $1200. I paid $2200 for my last trailer, but it was an 20' overdeck, trailer brakes, new wood, new 6k # axles, new lighting, basically everything new. That is a deal.

How many lawns do you have to cut to afford the 3k a month 500sq ft rental house you live in?
