    See @farmboy73 this dumb ### used to heavy haul too!

    Therein lies the problem, he wasn't intelligent enough to know which direction he needed to think in...
    but that was funny right there

    Nice! So doesn't it occur to people to do a little homework, maybe ask a few questions before they do some of this stuff? Never mind...I know the answer.

    Ah a TS 14 I despise those scrapers, we have/had 6 of them in the weeds I hoped I would never have to haul one again. Then we got so busy this year we resurrected 3 of the stupid things now I have them to contend with.

    Is that repairable? Likely cost?


    I'm surprised we don't have any scrapers.

    You just can't beat a good old detachable neck lowbed for this kind of stuff.

    detach works but a good steel step deck or fixed neck lowboy should haul that no problems I'm alittle confused why he started shelling alum. out

    First of all there is no way he would be able to scale that thing on a step deck so even a steel one would not be able to haul it, even with permits. He would have a hair over 60k on the trailer axles alone. That thing weighs a lot more than 57,000 pounds. Ritchie Brothers states that machine weighs in at 62,922 so it is probably closer to 67k.

    I hauled 4 bowls for ts32 scrapers and the bowl alone weighed in at 64k
