    Well I finally bought a bumper pull for pulling my skid around. Got a GREAT deal on a 18+2 skid pro. 7k axles, spring assist stand up ramps, 12k jack, oak floor. Pulled really nice empty, I am going to load my skid tomorrow and give it a try.
    Just 2 bad pics but I will get more tomorrow.

    Are those aluminum wheels and is that a pintle hitch or ball? Nice trailer!

    Steel wheels, its a ball but they gave me a pintle for it to. Probably try the pintle in a few weeks, never had one.

    Very nice. Once you go pintle you will never go back to a ball.

    Very nice trailer

    Nice trailer! A friend of mine has the same style of trailer but it is a PJ. I borrowed it to haul my skid steer and it pulled really well. Yours should pull the same. Good luck with it.

    Nice trailer, looks big. I wish I had those spring assist ramps, that's one of the worst things about using my skid for my residentials, lifting those ramps up and down all morning! Wonder if I could add something like that easily?

    Finally! you got one lol, too bad its not a deckover, but you got a real good deal on it.

    agreed with the pintle, much safer and easier to hook up as well.

    WI pens, I would think it would be pretty easy to add spring assist. Today Ill snap a pic of my ramp assembley.
    TLS, I wanted to upgrade to a snow wolf this year but I am probably going to be keeping my bobcat plow, adding wings next week and going to order a 10ft pro-tech push box.
    I think the trailer is more than strong enough. One guy at the trailer shop said it was right at the limit for hauling my S300, plow and pusher but I think it will be just fine unless I beat the S*** out of it.

    I love deckovers.... but they are so dang heavy empty. I am going to buy a 27+5 tandem dual GN from this same company in the spring for anything big.
