    I have seen this set up a few times before but haven't been able to take a pic but they were grinding two stumps on my street today and finally got a pic of it. This is what the forestry department in my city uses to haul there case 440. If Im not mistaken the trailer is only rated for 5,000lb and the machine is over 6,000lb. So who out of all of you would do this? lol

    I would if I had a truck big enough to do it. If you look at it the front axle of the loader is even with the trailer axle so that puts close to 1500 lbs on the trailer hitch and makes it ok.
