Jcb 714 adt

I ran across these on machinery trader the other day and was wondering if anyone has any experience with them or a similar model. I have a Case CX75 that I use around the farm with the smaller fence line and ditch cleaning projects and what ever else we can come up with and thought that a little ADT like one of these would be a good running mate to it.

I saw one in our area a couple of years ago but I know that they are not very popular at least on this side of the Atlantic.

Right now we have an F8000 ( I think that is the model) single axle truck with about a 10' box. The truck works fine but isn't the greatest off road and would like to replace in the future with something a little better suited to how we use it 90% of the time.

Thanks for the input, I know that there is a lot of experience and knowledge on these forums to soak up.

I looked them up, kinda cool size and can see for a smaller contractor/farmer they would be very handy. I could see using them for smaller site work and field work/rock picking.

There was another brand - Hydrema that has some smaller haulers but again was European. Unusual brands like that kinda scare me when it comes to parts or repairs.

Thanks for the reply, yea I stumbled onto the Hydremas first and then started looking for alternatives for the same reason you mentioned. Given there price I might be better off finding or building a dump trailer for behind one of the tractors.

Any snow up your way yet? I'm hoping that it holds off here until they get my basement poured.

No snow up here but I think it's time to call it and stick the fork in it for the year.

I see the regular size 6x6's sometimes for a lower price but they are probably beat and they are a little too big. I have used our Kodiak(single axle) and it's been fine but we have pretty flat and solid ground.

Miskin Scrapers builds an ADT trailer to go behind an Ag tractor. That would likely make more sense than a dedicated unit for Ag use, since you already have a tractor.

I've seen those Miskin trailers before and they look pretty nice. There is also a place I believe in Iowa that makes them but I can't remember their name. Unfortunately they would be way to big to load decent with my excavator. I've been looking into building a smaller version as a winter project at some point in the future.
