    Allis, it cost us about $62,000 but, if I were looking for a okay 35ton lowboy on the cheap I would try either a Kaufman or a Witzco Challenger. Both for a 35ton could be bought in the $35,000 to $40,000 range new. Quite a bit less used.

    Strucalc23, one of the main reasons we didn't buy a Kaufman is because I really can't find any info on one of your heavier trailers. No one I know has one and just doesn't seem to be any feedback on them from anyone.
