    Haha, I dont even know why you bothered chaining it down, those machines are heavy enough to hold themselves to the trailer...and a bit overkill on the truck and trailer, an F150 would have pulled that fine, and dont get me started on brake controllers, complete waste of money.

    :laughing:

    I sold the 240 in this pic and got a 03 260 2-speed to replace it. I usually haul the skid on the 18ft skid trailer but i put it on the goose neck alot too thought it was a nice looking pic

    Hmm, I had always thought that the majority of skidsteer trailers were like 12-16ft.

    Hopefully 4, like I had.

    ya it was a 18ft pjs trailer it belongs to my neighbor but let me use it when ever. i just purchased this 16ft one off craigslist in august that is also a 12000lbs trailer. plus always have the goose if i need it but becomes a pain in the butt hooking and unhooking every lot when im plowing. and yes 4 binders and chains that i made just for my skidloader on my trailer.

    Yah, I cant see the gooseneck being the slightest bit easier to detach. Do you guys just drop the trailer, Like no jack stand, since you have the skidsteer to pick it back up? Or do you put the jack down and stuff

    I was just giving you a hard time :D

    Yikes, I tried to color coordinate that to make it easier to see what I was talking about, but it just looks like a cluster f*ck of colors..
