Truck/trailer/machines

i know this is always a pain in the a** subject with trucks and what they can pull legally but i need a little help on this 1..

I'm looking into getting a bigger trailer to pull both my cat 305ccr and my bobcat t190 a total weight of about 19,000. I have a eager beaver 9 ton trailer that is 20' long and the machines don't fit together. I figured i would need at least another 4' to fit them nice. Problem is would my f-650 be able to pull that much weight and would a 10 ton trailer be able to do it?

I would think you would be ok, we pull our skid steer and attachments at a weight of 13,000+ with a F350 truck trailer and all it's just about maxed out his GVW at 26000 lbs

I pull my bobcat 334 and my t190 around with no problem but the 334 weighs like 5,000 lbs less then the 305.

do you mean put my t190 in my f-750 roll off? And then pull the 305 on the trailer? I tried that its kind of a hastle getting to the job with a big rig on these tight streets out here no less trying to find a spot just to disconnect the trailer then putting the roll off truck down to take the other machine out it took to much dam time. I need a big enough trailer to put both machines on and go to the job

it seems it would be even harder to get around with a bigger trailer.

how about a custom set of ramps that bridge the gap between the trailer and the roll off body so you just back the machine across the ranmps on to the trailer and then down the trailer ramps.

if i ever buy that 650 hook lift im going to do that.
