Transporting your z spray or t3000

I need to buy a rider this year. Should I get a small trailer that is useful for other things or one of those smart z spray trailers that is more manuverable?

I would go with a carrier rack I would not want to pull a trailer all over just to haul a small mechine on

Don't know any thing about the Z trailer but you don;t here a lot about them so they can't be that great

Good luck

I use a small trailer for hauling and its really not a problem. I am going to throw on a spring loaded pin lock that you pull the castor wheel into and it is locked in place.

From your post you have a Z spray so a carrier rack is out / on 97% of my job that would work

But the other 3% a trailer is a tough with narrow roads 1.5 lane you have to park in the drive way / long drive ways that there is no place to turn a trailer or a truck you have to back out on to the hiway / Small dead end roads with no place to turn a trailer

But i have lots that you just drive around the block to get out

Thanks, Charles. That's probably what I'll do.

Very true Charles the long backup on a skinny drive way can be tough!

Take a look at the carrier B & B Tech makes in Nebraska. I had one for two years and put thousands of miles on it showing the T3000. It is a strong carrier that really locks the Applicator into place. Takes seconds to load and unload.

see it at

http://b-btech.com/

If you call them ask for Bill

If you have questions about the T3000 you can call me 520-836-8162

Good to see you post again Bob. It's been a while. This season I'm going to try to wear out that fine aerator I bought from y'all last year. The drought kinda put a damper(no pun intended) on last years aerations.

I think Rayholio had some trouble with his B&B carrier but I'm sure they are fine for the typical LCO. We have about the same type area as Charles but I personally would rather deal with the inconvenience of a trailer 3% of the time than have all that weight on the rear end of my trucks. Just a personal preference.

I understand your though on the wight on the back of the truck but i would say that most trucks with a trailer have just as much tounge as i do with a carrier and my T3000 on it after running this for 3 years there is no harm to the truck

I think that Ray has bad luck with a lot of thing


Good morning Bob hope the world is being good to you
