    Tried the search. Nothing.

    Do you guys with standers (I'm looking at Wrights, but Danes would apply too) have any problems with bottoming out when trailering your machines?
    I know that with my 36" wb, I have to raise the front end as it goes over the top of the ramp so it doesn't bottom out. How would ya do this with a stander?
    Thanks.

    I used a Dane stander for a year, NO problems with bottoming out as it has such a short wheel base. I only had a problem once but thats another story tring to load it on larger tractor type trailer. Normally used a 6x12 (or close to) open. Worst case depending on the trailer ya would just have to come on at an angle.

    I use a 48" and a 36" Wright Stander on a 6 x 12 open trailer. No problems with the bottoming out. I agree that goin up at an angle might help.

    i have a 52" surfer and i had to turn my drop reciever upside down. that raised the front of the trailer, thus dropping the rear of the trailer.

    Especially for a guy like me who is planning on buying 1 or 2 in the next couple of months.

    Keep up the good posts on Standers!
