Nope, their actually 6k axles with 8 lugs. I thought they were 7k but i was wrong. I'm sure it could have taken more, but it squatted a bit.

Oh, I was just curious, they are strict on having a load of any sort(dirt, leaves, brush, etc) covered..

Perfectly. It was a lot of weight in the back, but it really was no problem.

Haha, it handled it fine, but you know when theres 12k behind you. Braking was excellent, and take off was excellent. 10x better then a gas job though. As for the grade job, 20 yards is alot lol. I don't think i'll take pics because the customer is there when we do it. I don't really like to take pictures when the customer is there.

More like 16,000 to 16,500 depending on how much the trailer weighs empty. Just curious why you did your side boards with gaps? Doesn't stuff fall out the cracks?

You really think there was 16k including the trailer? Could be, i have no idea. The trailer itself weighs around 3k empty. I made it with gaps for a few reasons. I think it looks a little better then solid wood all the way up. I keep grass in the trailer over the summer so i guess thatll help with the wood from rotting and lets it breath a little even though its pressure treated. Mainly because it looks better and was cheaper lol For the fall i put up plywood between the 2x4's when the loader is hooked up. And for the dirt, not as much came out as you would think.

looks nice, in ct you wouldent be able to keep all that stuff parked on the road like you do, the towns usually crack down on it and make you rent a place to store it all. they dont like it to look like you run a business out of your reisdntial house.
