    As was I!

    And I am good, even then I'll keep my trailers nice. Not using chains keep things nice, my trailer is proof of that.. :p :laugh:

    what do you use? only straps? Is that even legal in SC? I thought you had to have a chain and binder on the front and back of your machine...

    What we were told at a DOT safety check, yes its perfectly fine. Keep as many binders on the passenger side as possible. Strap it appropriately and have leather wraps for when you cross a sharp edge..

    Is it just the picture or is Juniors trailer bending from the weight ?

    I sure hope it is just a optical illusion :laugh:

    He has most of the weight over the axles so I doubt it is actually bending. Although it is a PJ, so it very well may be.

    If he spun it around and set the blade right at the end of the trailer it would be balanced a little better. I think it just looks that way as its got just a tad too much tongue weight. Pj trailers are awesome, we accidentally put a 18,000lbs smooth drum roller on ours( did not have a clue what the weight was at the time) and nothing happened.

    It gotta be a illusion that its bending the truck isn't squatting.

    Actually it is squatted and thats where we like it..

    And no Chris, we got it set where if the blade set to the back of the stake pocket just ahead of the marker light to be perfectly balanced in our opinion..

    It works on yours cause you've got 3 axles..
