    I really like CAMSUPERLINE trailers. I don't know if they are sold everywhere but around here they are popular and are built nicely. I do how ever like on that trailer you are looking at how the C channels on the side are turned out ward so you can hook chains or binders anywhere along the side.

    Here is the page for these trailers: http://www.camsuperline.com/

    Loading a mini on it will be nothing. Try putting it on our PJ. 3ft dove tail with I think like 5ft ramps? Kinda steep!

    Just use the boom to distribute the weight so you break over nice and easy.

    Btw, I load the trackloader backwards, screw turning on top, I feel like I am gonna go off the side. :laugh:

    I did it once, when I was working full time for my uncle with the T190 (Begone you POS!) and I actually flipped it off the trailer. He didn't do much better, so I kept my job.:laugh:

    I agree with Scag, it isn't perfect but start adding up all the moves of the Volvo or Daewoo. At $250 a pop it wouldn't take too much to earn the trailer back faster not to mention you roll at your schedule.

    I've had another landscaper haul the TK and I hate putting it on their deckover, don't care for the teeter-totter action. It sure is easier backing on the tilt and only being 20" off the ground.

    This is how I unload the excavator and load the skid steer

    the height doesnt bother me and it scared me the first time I loaded it, but it comes with the territory.

    There are different ways to load and unload without the teeter-totter action but I dont like sliding the bucket on the ground.


    Btw, Ozz, :laugh: :laugh: I am not even gonna attempt to turn the machine up top.

    I didn't see anything wrong with the way Chris unloaded and loaded his trailer that is the way you are supposed to unload a excavator off of a trailer with a beaver tail and ramps. It is a b*tch to do with a machine that doesn't have foot pedals you have to make sure your feet don't slip off the sticks while you are pushing them with your feet.

    it was a bit weird at first, but since no track hangs over ive learned to judge how much trailer is behind me by how much i see in front of the tracks.

    my trailer has the 17.5 load range H tires so its not as tippy side to side.
