I had a Jr. that I used to haul logs, a 9n tractor and 3 pt. hitch accessories, miscellaneous auction finds, and a fair sized Bobcat.
The trailer was well built, the loader was strong. I really liked it but a loaded trailer did tax my Ford F350 even with the 7.3 diesel.
As far as carrying equipment, it was rather nerve racking loading as the trailer sat very high and the ramps were therefore steep. The 4 wheel drive of the Bobcat was much easier than the 2 wheel tractor. Once the equipment was up there and secure, it was sometimes a bit of a challenge to find someplace for the boom and grapple but it always worked out.

I think the big ox would be perfect

my loader is very well designed, I have bullied some huge stuff onto my little one.
I have a chevy 4500 now, it could handle a big ox, but my previous one ton had all it could do to keep up with the little ox
