    Hey guys, Yesterday my dad and I started out on our journey to Cherry Valley, Illinois. We were headed that way to look at and potentially buy a JCB 406 articulating wheel loader. The loader came with a quick attach bucket and forks. The machine has 9400 hours on the body. The motor was rebuilt last summer. Also the body has brand new paint on it that is less than a month old. The machine was used to loader sod, stone, and many different landscaping supplies. The loader has aux. hydro's. My truck is completely stock and it pulled it like a dream. The trailer I used had 3 7000 pound axles on it.

    Yeah, My dad has been looking for something like this for sometime and i showed him the ad on machinarytrader.com on wednesday and we went to go look at it yesterday.

    My truck was maxed out as far as weight. I am sure if I got pulled over I would of been SOL. The trailer could of hauled more as its rated for 21,000 pounds. I think my truck is rated for 14,000 or something?. IDK.

    Yeah, she's dragging ass a little. Could have moved the machine back 6-12 inches too.

    ya personally I would have tried to fit the body of the machine on the axles to balance the weight better. just my opinion tho it would have helped on the drag quit a bit if the machine could have gone to the back more.

    We brought my truck home on the back of a 22' car trailer and it had the blade in the bed of the truck, we towed it with my dads 2wd 2001 f150.... The drag here is nothing compared to that haha

    Oh yeah, nice machine and sweet trailer. Looks about the same size as a Deere 244.

    You must have neglected to post the pics of the Prius drivers yelling at you for taking up 18 spaces:realmad:

    I think the loader could of been moved back between the 2nd and 3rd axle. Really the thing pulled great and it couldn't of gone better. Now the roads in Chicago suck tho. I think it was I90 that we were on. OMG! I thought some of our roads were in poor shape.
