    That is what I thought. Take the weight of the trailer from the 7K and you have about a 5500 net weight carrying capacity. The tracked machine weighs about 10K or maybe just a tad more. Hugely over weight. Enough said, he is getting something else, but still I think I would have borrowed something to move the machine.

    I ran one at the Equipment expo last year, Same as my takkie but it had the open out door. Real fast and smooth machine. They had me spread about 25 tons of gravel for them while I was playing on it:laugh:

    That machine is 10700 dry without a bucket, if its a Bradco bucket that comes on the Taks add probably at least another 800, then a full tank and some dirt or mud in the UC, that thing is at least 11500. Put that machine on a suitable trailer and your over 15k, to much for a receiver hitch with me driving. Looks like a nice machine though! One good thing is that I dont think the average DOT officer realizes that CTL' weigh that much more than a wheel skid

    Thats some weight for a truck and a skid!! My 14k trailer is technically overweight with my TL140. I think the weight of big CTL's is one of the reasons that the resale is poor, just to damn heavy for your average trailer and SW truck. I really wanted a 150, but I knew I was pushing it already with a 140!

    Yeah the 150 is a beast, I try not to pull it no more than I have to with my F250. You can tell its back there for sure. Thats pulling about 17,000 LBS

    yea i can definately tell the weight is back there pulling it with my f250. The trailer is rated at 10k though. The wheels are 6lug not 5. What i like about this machine is how much power it has when pushing into a pile and also its a very quick machine. I operated a takki for the first time a couple weeks ago and ever since then it made me really want a tl150/mtl25. I am highly impressed with this machine and the capabilities it has to make my everyday life a little easier!!!

    I think all TK's are 2 sp, at least the 130, 140, and 150, not sure about the 120
