    Wondering if anyone could help me out with what one of my trailers is worth. Im looking to up grade to a bigger equipment trailer to carry my 236 w/ and 8' pusher plus pallets and what not during the summer. This is what I have and am looking to sell it.

    02' Foster Equipment Trailer - Lowboy deck
    14' Deck, 12K, Electric Brakes, Front Basket, Heavy Duty Ramps, Sealed Wood Deck, 2 5/16" Adjustable Ball.
    Excellent Shape, No Rust, Tires at 75%, Really wasnt used all that much maybe once a week during the summer.
    Paid about $4200.00 Brand New.

    So any ideas on how much it is worth? Thanks Guys.

    Trailer price

    I bought a use c-10 towmaster two years ago for 3k. I have a buddy who bought a used c12 towmaster for 3500 flip deck this spring. If I were you I would put a fresh coat of paint on it and try to get at least 3500. The paint job on my trailer makes it look brand new!!

    at a dealer

    This time of year a lot of guys are buying new machines for snow plowing accounts. After shelling out good cabbage for a machine, they will be looking foro a deal on a trailer. Go to a bobcat or cat dealer, act like your interested in a machine and tell the dealer, "buy the way" I have a trailer to sell. They may know of someone lookin for a used one. That is how I found the one I bought.

    by the way

    how well does that 8' pusher work for you? I am thinking about putting a 10' on my s185 bobcat. I don't know if my machine can handle the 10' though?

    8' works like a champ. Not sure how a 10' would work on my machine but pro-tech didnt recommend it. My buddy has a 10' on his 256B, huge machine compared to mine. How many HP is your S185? 8' states 46-70HP, 10' anything greater than 70+. The thing is the weight of the machine as well. I dont use counter weights or chains either
