hey guys, i just purchased a 92 3450 (compact) loader/backhoe. it has 2900 hrs on it and appears to be in pretty good shape, with the exception of a pin or two. the weight with both implements is 5900lbs. my question is, what is a safe set up to transport this machine. i've been told a 3/4 ton pickup would be sufficient... is this true? i have a 84 chevy k30 CUCV (military 1&1/4ton pickup), 6.2 diesel/auto with a 9ft. flatbed. the receiver is welded to the ICC bar and also tied to the frame. i should be ok with this truck, correct? i'm sure my 16ft landscape trailer is in need of replacement. if i purchase a 10,000lb trailer will i need a cdl if the gvw of the trailer and machine (combined) are less than 10k? figured if anybody can answer my questions, it would be you guys. thanks, looking forward to hearing from you. have a good one.
