It's a water truck. We bought it cheap, the front end was smashed by a large Deere 450 excavator when the operator swung the counter weight into it. So we bought it, fixed and painter her up. It's only got 3000 miles and about 2600 hours on it and is a 2004. We use it for dust control as well as a safety measure in case of fire.

Got a few more pictures of the excavator on the lowboy... Its 101,660lbs as it sits.. 11'3" wide... and at the setup right now 14'6".. but we need to cut the plates out that the previous owner installed inbetween the axels on the trailer to get the arm to lower more..

Is the cylinder contacting the trailer here? Ouch.


Also you should get a photobucket or some similar photo uploading account. They are usually free depending on how much bandwidth you use.

It is, with Plywood under it. I had to take the trailer down the road about a mile to weigh it. As I said we need to torch out the Plate between the trailer axles so the arm can drop in the well.

We got the equipment from nortrax, the local Deere dealer.
