    what can i use to bridge a 24" wide trench for a t130 bobcat? i believe the weight is about 4000 lbs and the 60" bucket would have a scoop of crushed stone at its heaviest load.

    can i get away with 2x6 or 8s with 3/4" ext ply over the top?

    Not familiar with your machine, but I assume since there is a "T" designation in the model #, that it is a track machine ? If so, it shouldn't be a problem.

    use the bucket by laying it flat on the ground to spread the machine weight and cross at an angle and you should be fine.
