Two T190's behind an 08' F550

So I'm sitting here all loaded up with two skids behind my new Ford(don't give me crap). This is my first real load with this truck and I'm anxious to see how she'll do. I have a little over 300 miles to drive tonight to drop them off, hopefully everything goes good.

When did you buy a F-550 ?

When did you buy two 190 Bobcats ?

2 T190's is about 18,000 pounds, yeah I believe it.
I had my 247B2 and the ZX27 on my trailer (about 17,500 pounds) and my F450 pulled it real good.

I believe its possible, but SFL does lawn care and maintenance, his biggest truck is a 1500 Chevy, how do you go from lawn maintenance to having $80k worth of equipment behind a prolly $50k truck?

I think that he is delivering the skids to someone else, but it is odd that he would buy a new truck to start up a delivery service.

Okay SFL how did you go from wanting to buy a used Dodge Cummins to buying a F-550.

It is way past April fools

As for the weight 18,000lbs plus the trailer is a pretty good load for a F-550. One thing about it though your in flatland country so it would be okay. Not something I would try here even with a F-550.
