We had to by a 25 ton 3 axle trailer to replace our 15 ton dual axle. At first it would safely haul every thing we had. We got a Cat 312 excavator and a Case W 20 loader. It just could not handle the weight. I love my 3 axle equipment trailer. The extra brakes and tires makes a huge difference on towing stuff.

Rich, my buddy runs like you do! I heard an awful noise one day, and here he comes with the 25k machine on the 20k trailer on 3 rims and 1 flat on the pasenger side. I told him to at least check the air in the tires before he went. :roll:


maybe I miss read it. It could be "199" would that be 19 of 1999? :scratch:
