    Dirtman- How does your truck tow that setup? Is your truck a 250 or 350, 6.0 or 7.3? thanks.

    That trailer has to be a little rough on tires you can't get the weight forward anymore or there would be too much tounge weight on the truck.

    Nice to see chains and not ratchet straps cough Junior :laugh:

    I have a F250, 6.0

    The truck will pull it fine, you can tell its back there as the machine weighs around 12k and the trailer a good 4500. Along with my truck I think I'm pushing 24,500 loaded. The trailer is equiped with brakes on all 6 wheels so that helps a ton when stopping.

    Yes GR the trailer likes tires, its on its second set, but probably has 40-50K miles on it in the 3 years we've had it. we use it all the time

    Triaxles will carry the weight better especially if your towing it with a 3/4 ton.You can get the weight over the trailer axles and essentially all the truck is doing is pulling and steering the trailer. If it was a tandem then you would have more tounge weight on the truck.

    Get on hot pavement with that excavator on the trailer and make a sharp turn backing up you could probably hear things squeeking and banging along with lots of black marks left behind :laugh:
