    Now what Morton does is load an entire barn package on 1 or several trailers, drive to one place and unload it. That might not be to bad, but to make several stops each day ugh! That had better pay A LOT!

Can only reach one side of the trailer so he had to unload one side. Hook back up and move it to the other side of the road and repeat. Slam your hand in the door and buy a piggyback forklift. I could have unloaded it by hand faster.




    Look at it this way, a piggyback lift is around $30k (i almost bought one) if these truck mounted ones were even close to being as efficient no one would buy the piggybacks.
    What to they do when they go to a job and its wet? I bet they go through some clutches.

    Thats the price when there new. Lowes is selling moffets and trailers together for around 16K If a moffet has less the 2000 hours there good to go. We buy them used for about 5000 and put about 1000 in them and there good to go for years. The new moffets have a I-4 kubota with tiny little turbos.

    If it's wet forget it. I had stuff delivered in the winter and he got stuck twice. I had to price a new Princeton because I needed "a 4 way" to carry long beams. I walked away when the idiot dealer here said you can't put a forklift on an aluminum flat. I knew then I was dealing with a moron.

    Not very efficient at pulling a trailer making deliveries though. Would be awesome if you got paid by the hr!
