    Hi,

    Has anyone tried to put this skid plow bobcat into this Haulmark Edge Pro. If so, what did you do? Or should I, buy a 32' enclosed trailer or a gooseneck trailer?

    I appreciate your response.

    Thanks in advance,
    Shane

    Drive the plow in on the skid at an angle and remove it after it's inside? Or what about putting it on a pallet and drive it in on a forklift or skid with forks? Is this just a one time thing, or will you have to do it regularly?

    Is the trailer even tall enough?

    put a winch in the front of the trailer and build a dolly to set the blade on, winch the dolly into the trailer.

    I would rather have an open trailer and not have to remove the blade.

    Are you going to be loading and unloading at several sites a day?

    What skid?

    What plow?

    What is the internal width of the door?

    Has the ramp been reinforced?

    Because without these answers, no one, including the OP can answer these questions. Some good guesses can be made, but not actual answers.

    I'm with Mark on this one...

    Also,

    What is the weight rating of the axles and tires of the trailer?

    At first I thought no way,then instead of spouting off my uninformed opinion(I'm trying) I researched that trailer.It might work depending on how it's optioned out.Weak link is the ramp as others have mentioned.That skid setup weighs in at 9000 lbs! If you have the 10k gvw then no way,15k it will work safely.You may be better backing in or you'll be crawling around to get out.

    What was asked above. What is the trailer rated for. Call and ask the trailer manufacturer these questions.

    A plow dolly and a little push would go a long way on this one

    So you're trying to get Bobcat with plow attached inside to transport job to job?? The door is 48" long?? and how wide?:confused:
    You gotta clarify what you're wanting to do.

    What does weight of the tires have to do with anything?
    We are saying.......Is the door strong enough to support the weight of the skid?
    Is the inside height high enough the accommodate the skid?
    Is it wide enough to accommodate the plow?

    I don't think he quite understands the questions we're asking. Or what he needs to ask.

    Not sure if the door is strong enough to support the weight of the skid

    The interior height is 6' 10 inches so it should allow the skid to go in the enclosed trailer

    The wide rear opening door is 96in so converts to 8 ft so having the skid steer with the 810SS POWER PLOW™ hooked on it would near inches before the Power plow hits the side

    I do apologize for not answering your guys questions correctly

    So the problem you will have will be the wheel wells inside the trailer. The plow will fit at full angle but then sticks forward quite a bit. So my guess is you won't be able to back the machine into the trailer and have the plow at full angle and still be able to close the door, because the plow is hitting the wheel well on the edge closest to the machine. You may have enough room from wheel well to door, but I can't tell from the pic. I think the ramp will support the weight if the trailer is rated at 12,000lbs. I can say in my area, I've never seen anyone working a skid with a plow on it out of an enclosed trailer.
