    Sounds like he might be pushing it hu ? Sometimes it's all on where you position the machine on the trailer. What I mean is how much weight is on the truck hitch and how much is on the trailer wheels ? I guess you would have to scale it to be sure....:my2c

    Looks good!

    Question for you, does the license plate hit the ground when the trailer is tilted? It seems like all trailer mfg put the plate in a place that will drag the ground if you get into a dip.

    No the plate does not hit there is a steel pad in the center that sit on the ground when you tilt the trailer.

    Yea! There made in Canada which means now the price with exchange will be high! Look at the CAM Superline 25 ton.

    Welcome to HEF trailerman.

    Unfortunately I must suggest reading this entire thread before recommending CAM anything!

    Neat trailer Nac. Only one query.
    The first set of pics you posted there was no bin on the truck. I would be a little concerned about the tail wagging the dog :eek: If the truck is toooo light, eg, no bin ! Or do you put a bit of weight in the bin when moving?

    I normally run it with out a box the truck is 30,800 lbs with out a box so I have no problem. I need the box on the job I was going on thats why it was loaded.

    Hey Nac
    Wondering how the q/c grapple is working for you? After running my 200's, i would love to get the heavy thumb off the tippy 160 while loading out dirt after the house is long gone.
