    7000 minus the empty weight of trailer equals more then the weight of that machine? I dont think so. thats probably a 6/6.5k machine.

    atleast you know the gate won't hold. how are they reinforcing it

    Trailer weighs 1,500 # and the machine is 5,400 #. I'm right there, with bucket and forks I'm a little over. I'm going to run angle iron across the width of the gate. - Mike
