    i have a 14ft trailer with two 3500# axles and the trailer weighs 1800# so i can load 5200# would that be enough to transport a bobcat mini excavator not sure of the model, it's pretty small just not sure what it weighs

    Not endless its a heavy duty trailer.

    Does the trailer have ramps or a gate? Your just going to bend the trailer putting it on it if its just a normal trailer that we all use for our mowers.

    I loaded a S185 bobcat on my 16ft dual axle trailer to drive 2 miles down the road and bent the hell out of the back loading it on it.

    If it weights less then 5200 it should work

    Sure no problems at all. But if you haul a skid or mini x everyday and use it commercially, you will tear up the trailer fast. Utility/mowing trailers are pretty lightly built, I would recomend at least a 7'x16' 12k equipment trailer. You can pick them up new for around 2k.
