Id tear one up quick, being careful.
 I have a flex 380 forestry trailer and a loader from Bailey's both have been worked on. The loader has been rebuilt with bigger pistons and the reach has been extended from 9' to 13'6". The trailer needs new bunks all around as the old ones are bent bad. Most of the trailer was built with 3/16" stock. The main beam is 1/4".

I have an Anderson forestry trailer with power pack and winch.  Just got it this fall, but it's  been great so far.

Did a fun little video of me salvaging a hemlock with it.

I have a Vreten crane and a kelsa 9T trailer. No brakes or drive . I run it behind a Valtra 900. I have to say this and some may disagree but the Scandinavian forestry equipment is nothing but quality. Built to last. The Tractor is pre Agco and totally built in Finland.

Patu 575 loader, I think its a 7T trailer if I remember right.  Got it used.

Also have a 205 loader on a homebuild trailer.

Why do I have two?  Because I have a problem.  My names Ron and I cant pass on equipment at a "good" price!
Dont know what these cost but it wouldnt be hard to build one.

I run a Nokka 29 trailer & loader behind my timberjack 230. Versatile set up, where I can drop the trailer in minutes and use the skidder alone. It is a small unit that I can still do thinnings with although you have to plan your trails as it does take room to turn.

I just picked this up in January and so for its been great. It's a Nokka 29 loader mounted on a Moritz 14000 gvrw gooseneck using the four pins that normally hold the dove tail on. The previous owner did it this way so that you can remove the loader and reinstall the dove tail to haul equipment if you need too. I was thinking about putting on a bumper pull though so that I can pull it with a dump truck. Has anyone tried rear mounting one on a bumper pull and if so was there enough tongue weight on the hitch when empty?
