It works on yours cause you've got 3 axles..
I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Where the machine is sitting is the right spot it gives enough tounge weight and the trailer won't be see-sawing on the axles.

If Juniors trailer was a gooseneck you could move the machine forward a little more.

The dutch boy Ron has the best set up and so does Steve (bobcatuser) the trucks can handle the weight and its like driving a smaller scale 18 wheeler.

If it was a gooseneck it really wouldnt matter where the machine was..

And I gotta agree, Ron has a nice set up, I prefer ARP's though, the pick up is more of a DD.

Loving my setup, I just did another tandem machine pull, mini excavator and Cat skid steer, what a trip, the 6.0 was very happy. But I need more chain though, I wedged the cat bucket under the blade of the mini and used 1 chain over the blade, sneaky, sneaky, sneaky.

It was too dark to get one, and big brother was standing next to me, so you know what's going to pop up in the conversation err, I mean arguement.

I am doing another tandem pull tomorrow, this time with a rental 301.8 and my Cat.

24 feet to the end of the beaver tail, add another 9 feet to that for the total length.

I got lots of pics, I even got the chance to use a bobcat Vershandler today, not fun, not fun.
