Thank you. It is quite handy to be able to do this, but my partner and I usually run separately because we don't spend much time together on the same site for very long.
I think we could get a TL240/TL10 on there with the 135sr. As far as weight goes, the TL130 and 135sr weight about 39,000 with fuel. Truck weighs in at about 21,000 and the trailer, I believe is 10,500. We are plated for 90,000 so we should be at roughly 71,000 combined weight.
I have been doing some work about 180 miles from home, so it's been nice to have the sweet truck to run as well as be able to carry multiple pieces of equipment.
We are building a Sterling quad right now. If we go with a barn door style tailgate, we should be able to carry the 135sr, the TL130 and the 35sr all at once if we needed to. We have a job coming up for a private residence that looks to be $250,000 worth of work and is expected to be 2 years of work, but the site is almost 3 hours away from home. So we will stay there for a week at a time and need to be able to maximize our mobility.

My 99 Mack RD Dump 400 HP 13 SPD 14' box Pintle w/air to the rear. I don't have a picture with the tag trailer. Been so busy with snow I finally got some time this week to drop it to get lettered.

It did look like that.

Yea! I'm starting to have a hard time with all this snow, want to get digging but with all the cold and snow nobody wants to talk about landscaping/excavating stuff. We just set the coldest meteorological winter in a 110 years. Yea,

What year and how many hours does your 135 have? Have you started a picture/work thread here yet?

I believe the 135 is an '05 or '06.... I have about 5,800 hours on it. I bought it brand new, with a hydraulic coupler and thumb, as well as a 42" and 60" bucket.

I have not started a business thread.... yet. I never felt I could make it worth while for people to look at. I was, until last August, a one man business. I took on a partner to make things a bit easier on me. But we doubled the size of the company, but more than tripled the work load.... looking to hire now.

Would you advise starting a thread under my screen name or our company name?

I don't know but it would be your thread so it can be what you want.

I had a 99 135 that had a lot of hours, slower but just purred away.

I do like that 135 I have been looking at the Komatsu 138 for future purchase. Seems like it could be a good versatile machine.
