    Very nice, first thing to do is to put one of those warning stickers for the fork lift drivers not to tear up your new trailer :biggrin_25512:

    Yeah that's what somebody else said. It's a good idea. I'll tell you what I am sick and tired of people tearing my equipment up for sure. Back in December I thought they were going to destroy my friggin Utility before I could park it for good and grab the Dane. Just before Christmas some idiot with his fork sliced a logistic post clean in half. I got $600 for those damages it cost $416 to have repaired. Was my fault for booking the load though. I know better than to haul recycled bales of cardboard, crappy messy load, but at the time they were paying $1,000 back to Chattanooga on 265 loaded miles, that was the posted rate, I booked it and ran. No more of that crap on this new one.

    I would like to have a good pressure washer. It would work great at the house for the tractor but I have no water source where the trailer sits. I hate the recycled water at Blue Beacons it's hard on paint. What have you got and how much?

    Those squeeze clamp lift trucks are the worst. They tear up walls and gouge floors. The reminder signs in the trailer is a great idea.

    Congrats, and good hauling.

    It was a regular fork lift not squeeze clamp. The guy was using the walls of my trailer to bump the double stacked bales into place - hard to describe. To do what he did I mean there was just no way how is it you just mash on the go pedal and crunch, screech your way on through? I was seeing red.

    I have the same issue with being able to clean my trailer. Was thinking of looking on craigslist services to find someone who does mobile pressure washing. I know there is a guy that lives near me who has a large steam unit on a trailer. May have to stop by and pay him a visit.

    I use one of these when I wash my skidder out in the field. It lasts for a long while. Just figure how many GPM your pressure washer is, that will tell you how long you have.
