    Groundcover, you mention the Dodge being a ble to pull 15,000... That's total gcvwr... If your machine weighs 13 something, the trailer you pull it on will put you well over the 15k mark.. The guy who delivered it was deffinatelly over weight. Around here a statey or the truck task force would have a field day with that setup. I'd get something like a 6500 gmc, or freight liner fl70, or an International, etc.. You are gonna be needing the class A anyway, so you might as well get something with the capacity to pull it with ease.. I've pulled a Case 580 hoe before on a goose neck and dually setup, and it will pull it, but stopping it was NO FUN...

    As far as trailers go, the Econoline , and the Eager beaver's are very nice...
