    You really need to tie those machines down with chains

    Whiffy, Ive always been fine with 10,000 lb racket straps. Normally I have 4 of these on the cat and 1-2 on the bucket. I figure 30k-40k of straps is plenty. I know this new Cat weighs 3k more than my old 242B but Ive never had a problem.

    Ahh yup thats a 24' gooseneck Texas Bragg I custom ordered back in 2009. Its 14k gvw. Its an extra wide, non deck over. Its a gooseneck as well.

    In the on season its used as my commercial mowing crew trailer.

    Its built like a tank.

    Whiffy,

    Yes I def would buy another. I currently own 5 of them. One is a 16' Gooseneck dump trailer. It has 4' metal side and its 14k gvw. Ill try to get a few pics of it. Message me your email address.

    Texas Bragg in my opinion are some of the best built trailers out there. I have 2 from 2000 that I still have going strong. The new landscape trailers I own and have seen from other brands just arent that good. The reason I havent bought any new Texas Bragg lately is b/c the closest dealer is like 5 hours away and my local trailer dealer doesnt sell them.
