    Planning to buy another trailer

    Maxey trailers are built in Texas and they'll give me a discount. The owner is great to deal with. I'm in talks with the company to build one that's wider than shown in the video. Plus the trailer must have a greater hauling capacity and be longer.

    Of course, there are some tractors and planters that are too wide and heavy and will still have to be hauled with a semi on a lowboy or landoll type trailer.

    The trailer may also be used for hauling hay at times. I'm going to have a HD electric winch installed on the front.
    This one is going to get lots of use.

    Neat idea. Are they able to do a deck over style or will it be a wider in between the wheels version?

    I'd love to have a hydraulic Landoll style gooseneck trailer, but I could buy a used semi and lowboy cheaper. Keep us updated!

    I'm waiting to find out what their engineering dept has to say on how wide they can go legally with the present design or if they can, what the price would be. With multiple widths and weights of tractors and other machines, the trailer will have to be able to haul machines much larger than what is shown in the video.

    I'll still haul things like combines and 4x4 articulated tractors etc with a semi and trailers made for that kind of weight. I sure don't want a ticket from DOT for being overloaded.

    Some of the tractors I've hauled in the past with a 1 ton dually and trailer weren't running. The tall height of the trailer added to the danger. A lower trailer like is shown would sure make things easier and safer when loading/unloading.

    Pretty snazzy! Sure beats ramps.

    Looks nice. I did a quick search on my phone but I couldn't find any info on the axles on that trailer. How are they configured? It seems that the deck lowers below the hubs.

    I'm curious to see what they can do. I believe the max width without oversize permits is 102", and when you figure the wheel/ tire/ bearing assemblies will take up at least 8-10" per side there's not a lot of deck width left for a lowboy style trailer.

    Neat! Will you buy me one G & R Man? For testing purposes of course!
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I'm still trying to find out all the design specs. I know several guys, who belong to my hunting club, that purchased trailers from that company and are very satisfied. Will be making a trip to the factory to hopefully get all my questions answered.
    They also offer the Drop N Load design for their car haulers.

    They sometimes have contests where trailers are given away. The last giveaway was done via facebook and it was for a Drop N Load car hauler. I don't do facebook.
