    A lot of that is probably more oversized than heavy.

    Depending on what it is it might look “to the back” but it’s actually centered for weight

    They care about the weight, and I have onboard scale.

    A little easier to get under with a mechanical if the load is back. Lift it and then walk it to where you want it is what a lot of guys do.

    Hey now! You’re giving away all the secrets. At the time I was pulling that trailer with a ten speed auto transmission truck with no ramps. The majority of our work is tall, light crates, not 45k pound dozers.

    I would balance the drives and the trailer axles. Too heavy on the backend can create handling problems. Plus, I like to have some weight on the drive axles.

    "Better to carry it than to drag it" is a mantra I was told way back when that has served me well, especially come winter.
