    It is an older asphalt power screeder. 8' to 12' adjustable width. twin 8hp motors, and no drive system, it is a towbehind. I bought it on ebay and need to know what trailer i need to haul it.

    That weighs more than what a P/U truck can handle with a trailer. Your better off having it put on a freight companys trailer and have it shipped to you. That is going to weigh atleast 10,000lbs maybe 12,000.

    I have a '03 2500 ram diesel. I am sure i can handle it. But I was thinking more about 5000 lbs.

    **Note** like most units....this is not slef propelled, it is a towable. So, it only has 2 small motors vs most that have a large motor and drive system.

    I think pavers can weigh anywhere from 17k - 40k.

    I'm thinking yours is closer to the 17k.

    You will need a large trailer.

    You will most likely be over 26k GWR towing this anywhere...I don't know about Canada, but down here you would need a CDL license.

    hope this helps out a bit.

    Maybe I'm wrong..cause it does look a little on the small side, with no drive system as well..

    My question is:

    Why in the hell would you buy something like this not knowing if you could haul/tow/pull this thing?

    Impulse purchase of the internet?
