    The rears are polished by calivas.the jeep are new really cant tell the diffrence .Ramon(D&X Welding) built some steel plates for the deck to save the wood from getting tore up by the machine we tested the trailer out on (cat836).I think there are a couple of small changes that are gonna get made ,other than painting the deck its pretty much done.and some pics

    Finally out on the road with it.
    Looks like it is holding up under the weight of the 836 really good. Still a nice arch in it. Have to see what it looks like with a real 9 axle load on it.

    I like the deck plates. They look thick enough to hold up to a real beating.

    looks good... nice idea about saving the wood.
    Who scratched it first :)
    I'd throw a gallon of paint at the plates... I know it won't last ... gives it a better look

    The plates worked out pretty good maybe need a little more welding on them to keep from sliding around. seem to be a able to hold up to the 836 with no problem cant say the same for the front of the deck:rolleyes:I got to pull it first.It wasnt too bad a little longer than our 7 axleI guess you get used to it after a while.Jerry heres a few pics from today of a d10n that one of the other drivers did.

    Hey Nick

    It's a small world. I just missed your driver today by the looks of things. If I had been a little earlier, I might have seen your new baby in person.

    Where did the D-10 go to?

    Nick

    Yes, I was with the crew working on the road up top.

    Love your pictures of the rebuild, and now it is nice to see it finally working. Looks like it tests out good. Are you getting ready to paint the rest of it now?

    I noticed the lack of red & white reflective tape on the trailer... is there a correct amount of tape... I see there is some on the front jeep...

    Might save you a ticket if it's required..:)

    Iwould rather see the money in your pocket than the Terminators :)

    its required on at least 50% of the trailer. did you guys happen to weigh that 10 on there? how come you have your 7 axle jeep hooked up to it, is the other one not complete yet?

    Nick also do you know the width of the center rails on that murray? how much clearance did you have with that 836?

    Jerry hopefully it will get painted real soon there were a few little things that we are gonna change.like the oversize sign and the rear lights on the booster and a couple things on the deck I think.Then hopefully it gets painted

    Heavy Lift yeah they have to put it on still your right no need giving it to the governator.
    Preen didnt get a chance to weight it empty or with the d10 yet.The other jeep wasnt ready yesterday We took the pony motor out and plumbed it to work off the tractor our trucks have PTO's on them to run Landolls I think they are waiting on the couplers.Dont know off hand the width will have to check but it had a couple of inches clearance.DO you have problems with clearance on yours?

    we've never hauled one but i was told they wouldn't clear the center rails and that you got to haul them on a flat deck. wouldn't think the center beam is that much different between a cozad and murray, maybe Chaz could answer this one? Looks good though Nick keep postin pics!

    the rails are 6"wide I believe on the bigger trailers the rails are 8" didn't check the overall width between the two but that's probably why it wont work on yours.It didn't have very much space so that 4'' might be the difference.

    Renn,
    Our Rackley and Cozad nine axles both rails are 58" wide. Should be the same on your Cozad. We just haul a new 836H on the Rackley with no problem.
