    So I'm sitting here all loaded up with two skids behind my new Ford(don't give me crap:eek:). This is my first real load with this truck and I'm anxious to see how she'll do. I have a little over 300 miles to drive tonight to drop them off, hopefully everything goes good.

    When did you buy two 190 Bobcats ?

    2 T190's is about 18,000 pounds, yeah I believe it.
    I had my 247B2 and the ZX27 on my trailer (about 17,500 pounds) and my F450 pulled it real good.

    I believe its possible, but SFL does lawn care and maintenance, his biggest truck is a 1500 Chevy, how do you go from lawn maintenance to having $80k worth of equipment behind a prolly $50k truck?

    I think that he is delivering the skids to someone else, but it is odd that he would buy a new truck to start up a delivery service.

    Okay SFL how did you go from wanting to buy a used Dodge Cummins to buying a F-550.

    It is way past April fools :laugh:

    As for the weight 18,000lbs plus the trailer is a pretty good load for a F-550. One thing about it though your in flatland country so it would be okay. Not something I would try here even with a F-550.
