    Just got our new Interstate 20 Ton, Air Brake, LED's, with the famous "spring assist" ramps. Love this trailer so far. Stops like a dream, and the lights aren't that bad either. I'll get more pictures tomarow with the other truck hooked up. The truck gets sandblasted next week thank god.:dizzy:

    That's a nice trailer. Looking for one just like that to pull behind my tandem. What is the deck length on it 19', 20' with a 6' beaver tail? If you don't mind me asking, how much?

    I have a 2000 or 2001 (I'll check tomarow) Winston 10 Ton new electric brakes, needs nothing accept paint (can sand blast for $$$) For Sale for $2,900. The new trailer is 20ft with the 6ft beaver. I'll also get back to you on the EXACT price for this trailer.

    Is that a 10 ton payload or 10 ton total gvw? I want a trailer to haul 2 machines at once, a 10K lb CAT MTL and a 8K lb mini ex at the same time. I think I am more interested in something like your new one.

    That's payload. You could handle your 2 machines easily with his old trailer. Nice trailer snowplow! Were looking into getting a 20t ourselves, but I'm not taking the dive into new like you. We'll get used and do a little blasting and paint ourselves. Good lukc with it, and be sure to make some $$! payup

    I thought a trailer was rated by GVW

    Yes they are, GVW on a 10ton trailer is 25,900lbs.

    That almost makes sense:rolleyes:

    Makes total sense. Obviously there is no experience with larger tag trailers. The trailer he just purchased, I would almost put money on is a 40DLA rated at 20ton with a GVW of 47,600. :salute:

    Which if is the case they would be rated by payload:drinkup:

    Snowplow, enjoy your new trailer, no intentions of hijacking your thread. Unfortunately there is STILL petty BS baby stuff that goes on here. At least the screen names are starting to fit the users. :cry:

    Nice looking trailer. I've had an interstate for a few years and love it. Definitly a quality trailer not like some of the crap out there.

    Hope it makes you some money.

    I like the quality in these trailers also.

    You had to go to the 25 ton to get the hydro ramps, and we didn't need the extra 5 ton so went with the 20. We got ours from George and Swede also, notice the oval sticker on the front side plate where your backhoe bucket goes ;)

    Yes, well it says "400 DLA" but same thing
    I have the 10 ton for sale, just needs blasting and paint. Great trailer just a little small for us. Total price tag out the door was $18,000. Isn't to bad considering the Winston 10 ton electric brakes was $10,000 in 2001!
