    I saw that before I posted but I couldnt tell if that was with the bucket. My main reason for asking is I've found some 7000 lb dual axle trailers for hauling it and was trying to decide between grabbing one or seeing if I need a 10000 lb trailer.

    You need a 10k trailer. Don't forget to subtract the trailer weight from the trailer's gross rating to figure out its hauling capacity.

    Buy the biggest, best built trailer you can afford and don't buy anything rated for less than 10K.
