    So the Blizzard 810PP plow is on the '91 F350 (V8 gas is you're wondering) The Fisher 1.5yard Poly Caster is in. The Protech SP10S's have been deliverd to the sites, and the Cat 246B is just waitin to burn some diesel doing some pushing.

    Now we sit.......... and wait........and wait................maybe saturday the weather man says we might, just might get an inch, if we do, we're off to the races, on our 1" trigger contracts.

    I'm going to guess you've got a 5.4L V8 then. What rear gears does the truck have? Your MPG must really suck hauling that big cat around. How heavy is the trailer? It looks like its squatting pretty good. Nice equipment though, I like the look of the reg cab F350s.

    since the skidder is 7200#, i would guess those are 3400# axles so she's a tad over, but hey who's counting... let it snow let it snow let it snow.:bluebounc

    So do you stock axles for it then? About 2600# over weight if those are the small axles. I would check though, I think they put heavy axles under some of those.

    I was waiting for all the tough questions to start coming, seeing that when I originally posted, my post fell between, "F150/Skid steer", and, "reasons not buy a ford". What a place to end up with my Ford and all the stuff piled on the trailer.

    To start it's not a "landscape trailer" it is a 16' car hauler for which I had 2 ramps made, 1 on the back, the other you see on the passenger side, plus of course the side rails. In the front are 2 boxes. 1 is expanded mesh with the top open, the other is a Buyers box, I took the lid off and had a nylon mesh cover put on, its easier to get into. In the winter, trimmer's racks come off also.

    Axles are actually 5000 lbs, and yes it does have electric brakes, and a controller inside the truck to boot. In the pic. the tires are at 45 lbs. cause in the summer it rides so rough, so I run the tire pressure low for a nicer ride, as there are only 2 Exmarks, 2 push mowers, 2 trimmers and 2 blowers on the trailer. After I took the pic I backed it into the yard and aired up to 70 PSI so it looks better now. So yea, she's close if not a hair over. Our loop or route is less then 10 miles.

    I pull the trailer in the summer with a 1991 (correct year this time SuperdutyShane) GMC 3500 crew cab on propane, with tilt box, only 61,000miles.

    Yes it is. I'll have to check the rear end, but yea it likes to suck up the gas when pushing.

    The CAT is a '05 with 702 Hrs. For us here a big snow is 6" to 8", it does great. With a 10' box, if its really wet, then on a full push it will start to crab and you have to take less.

    For me it's all about maxing out my dollars, why have a separate trailer for the skid. I used to have a JD 5200 with a 7' flail mower that we did a lot of mowing for the railways. But that work is so hard on equipment that I quite 2 years ago, kept the 20' tilting trailer for the skid for 1 season and then decided to sell it and use this set up.

    Im is not a word "I am" would be correct or " I'm " would be gooder.........or should I say correcter. Of course if you are texting someone, it would mean "Instant Messaging -or- Immediate Message" but of course that wouldn't make sense in your sentence. :) Oh.........and nazi should be capatilized, Nazi, is a proper noun.

    I hope that covered all your questions. Thanks,
