I'm looking to purchase a trailer to haul my CAT D6. I'm thinking I will probably need a 25 ton, 3 axle set-up. I've looked at a few different options. I've checked out Felling, Towmaster, and Behnke trailers. I've talked to several local dealers and specked out trailers. From my research, I'm leaning towards the Behnke trailer. It seems to be the best equipped of the 3 and comes with many standard features, that are upgrades on the Felling and Towmaster trailers. Also, the powder coat paint is a big plus with the harsh Midwest winters. Here is a link to all 3 brands I'm considering:

https://towmaster.com/product/t-50-50lp/

https://behnkeenterprises.com/trailertypes/tags/

Any suggestions, experiences with these brands, help, etc. would be appreciated.

Not many guys on here deal with hauling that kind of weight so you may not see much activity on this thread.

Yeah, the only thing I see as a disadvantage is in the to master in that they only make a 24'. If that's what you want, then great.
I'm biased too I guess, that Felling is only 75 miles down the interstate from me, they have a very nice facility.

Can't comment on the other 2 but Felling is reputable. My FIL and a buddy both have a 40 or 50T and I know a guy with a Felling and an Interstate. None of them have ever said anything negative about either.

Oh, I just googled trailer reviews and applied to several sites. After looking everything, over this site appears to be for the lighter duty (20K and below) trailers. I'll probably pull the trigger for my trailer this week. I think I'm settled on the Behnke trailer. I got a chance to look at all 3 brands this weekend. Not only is it cheaper, but it is also much better built in my opinion.

Good luck with the purchase
