    couple of questions

    why do You have the machine so far back on the trailer with the rear kicked up? And what is your over all height? That's a good looking rig, but city driving must be a pita.

    when i picked up my last new lowbed i took a bottle of miller high life ("Champagne of beers") Had my girlfriend smash it on the neck roller. As a little ships launch/christening. Still needs some Betts lights though.

    it didn't need to be that far back. the rear is higher, because when the trailer is on the ground the back of the beam is higher so when blocking the machine up to back it on the trailer the rear needed to be higher to clear the beam. It was 14'8".


    Dualie thats a good idea!:drinkup

    988 on deck

    We can't do that around here, well we could, but it would play hell with the bridges and stop lights. Anything over 14' high you have to watch where your going in Michigan.
