    I have a ball and a couple chain hooks welded to the top of my bucket. Wouldn't something like that work?

    It might, depending on how heavy the pin weight is. My little 2501 can only lift 1000 lbs with the bucket attached, but the 3 pt can do 1900 lbs.

    I like that grubber design.

    Hopefully it still works in the cold


    Too soon?

    Could you please post a picture of the back side of the front axle showing the plow mounting points?
    I have a 140 and some plow blades -- just not a plow blade for a 140, yet ... but I do have a welder... :welder:
    Thanks!

    (And we don't need any more stinkin' snow...) ;)

    There’s a through bolt where the cultivator frames mount. There’s a piece of pipe with two squares that fit in between there to tighten it down on as well.

    Yeah...well sort of. I can’t throw enough money at this guy to sell me his. I was going down to OK tomorrow...but they didn’t get their shit together.

    Maybe swing down there on Sunday. Who knows. Lol

    Sometimes you can get lucky & snag one at auction. Guys down the way scored a pretty good one last summer. A lot like that one.

    Good thinking. I did check some local area auctions without any luck. Colorado is just ridiculous on trailer cost. When I retire in a few short years, I see a side gig opportunity. I have been talking to a few trailer dealers in TX and OK, and they say 60% of their business is from CO...and they buy 2-3 at a time and sell them up here.

    I did see some used trailers in New Mexico at auctions, but they were rough. Been looking at a lot of used trailers and this is great to see how they hold up. A few trailer brands I will not even consider.

    The one I want in OK checks off all my needs: 24’, 83” wide, hydraulic jacks, quality brand (I’ve owned two prior Load Trails), 8k axles. Only thing that I am missing is MAX Ramps. I really wanted those, but it's not a deal breaker. I spec'd this trailer up here in CO for almost 13K. I will just make some drive over bars integrated into the factory fenders and buy aluminum ramps. This should keep my capacity up around 11400 lbs for when I haul boulders and building equipment.

    I thought I wanted a 102” wide deck until looking at weight ratings and how much the extra width adds. On my current 20’ 102” wide load trail, the difference between the 83 vs 102 is 700 lbs. on a 24’, I’m giving up almost 900 lbs of capacity.

    With 8K axles, the capacity really jumps...as long as it isn't a tilt deck....like this one.

    That’s quite a bit of payload to lose. The man said a former shingling crew had his & after the contracts from the recent hail storm dried up, they unloaded it for whatever they could get.
