Do you think I could haul my bobcat with this trailer. I have a Mustang 960 which i believe weighs about 6500 pounds. not sure if the ramp would hold.

Trailer would it without a problem but the gate would have to be reworked.

The other thing you need to consider is that when you load a skid steer it puts all the weight on the rear 5200 lb axle when you first drive up the ramp onto the trailer. Anything less then 7K axles for skid steers is usually not good.

That is why you need rear stabilizer jacks on heavy trailers.

I've seen stabilizers on enclosed trailers but that's it. Usually with twin 7K's you don't get the major sag which shifts the total load onto the rear axle. It would make loading a little safer and be a nice option on twin 7K and less rigs. I have triple 7K and twin 10K axles on my big trailers so there is very little movement.

Originally, I couldn't understand the $4000 thing but now I see. Good God, I've never seen a trailer like that with that many mowers. It looks like a train-lot to haul around. Don't think my 1/2 ton would like it very much.
