Yeah the big trailer moves, the roller on the rear door broke so it sat for a few weeks while parts were on order. That thing is a ***** to pull around being 20 ft but fits everything. I try to use the smaller trailer when I can to save on fuel. The Scag riders take up so much room with the baggers, some days we need multiple machines and they don't fit in the small trailer.

Oh ya, your trailer is more comfortable to sit on than mine, thats why I chose to sit on it for a half hour today instead and watch you work instead of sitting on my own.

The 08 is a Hooklift and has two control levers right in the middle of the center seat, so only two of us can ride in it, comfortably. I don't want my guys climbing over the levers anyway, they're dumb and will break something. On this truck I did the right thing and had it custom built, the other F550 was sitting on a dealer's lot for months, He was begging me to take it of his hands. But I've had some ongoing problems with that truck since I bought it, Tranny noises, Burning oil smell, Brake controller failed, Dump body stuck in upright position, Hydraulic system leaked all over brand new Banks exhaust. One dealer I brought it to broke my bug deflector, and must have drove the truck into one of the feet on his pedestal lift and gouged my aluminum wheel. Hopefully I have better luck with this one. Heres a few pics.
