Skidsteer on a log trailer?
« on: June 10, 2007, 07:30:17 PM »
Will a Lil Ox or Wheeler Jr. haul a skidsteer? Certainly the trailer is robust enough but can the skidsteer and the grapple boom co-exist? ??? :P

One of the websites about these trailers mentions adding ramps for skidsteers etc..

Couldn't the boom be folded up or set off to one side ?

I hope someone who actually knows something will answer you ;D

Thanks Sprucebunny.

I have seen photos of compact tractors on such a trailer, but not a skidsteer.
I'm calling a local dealer today to ask the same question but I've found that dealers often work on theories rather than actual in field use. Figured someone out there must have done/tried it.

Brad,

Why not call Blue Ox themselves?

They should be able to give you the info you need.
