    i know this is always a pain in the a** subject with trucks and what they can pull legally but i need a little help on this 1..

    I'm looking into getting a bigger trailer to pull both my cat 305ccr and my bobcat t190 a total weight of about 19,000. I have a eager beaver 9 ton trailer that is 20' long and the machines don't fit together. I figured i would need at least another 4' to fit them nice. Problem is would my f-650 be able to pull that much weight and would a 10 ton trailer be able to do it?

    I would think you would be ok, we pull our skid steer and attachments at a weight of 13,000+ with a F350 truck trailer and all it's just about maxed out his GVW at 26000 lbs

    doesnt a 305 weight about 12,000 so that only leaves 7,000 for a t-190? if so they are light little bugers.

    i think i messed up 305 weighs about 12,500 and the t190 weighs about 7,500 so thats 20,000 opps :laugh:

    thats still not that much though. figure another 5k for the trailer and i would say a 650 would be able to pull that. not that i have done it but i have seen a 650 with a 450 case ctl and a 50d deere around town and it seems to get the train movin.

    I pull my bobcat 334 and my t190 around with no problem but the 334 weighs like 5,000 lbs less then the 305.

    why cant you put the t-190 in the f650 and then put the 305 on the trailer?

    do you mean put my t190 in my f-750 roll off? And then pull the 305 on the trailer? I tried that its kind of a hastle getting to the job with a big rig on these tight streets out here no less trying to find a spot just to disconnect the trailer then putting the roll off truck down to take the other machine out it took to much dam time. I need a big enough trailer to put both machines on and go to the job

    it seems it would be even harder to get around with a bigger trailer.

    how about a custom set of ramps that bridge the gap between the trailer and the roll off body so you just back the machine across the ranmps on to the trailer and then down the trailer ramps.

    if i ever buy that 650 hook lift im going to do that.
