At the moment hand ball it into the back off a muck trailer, the things I'd do for a 5 tonne timber trailer! :)  :) 

 

 

Probably the same thing's I'd do for a ten ton forwarder

Well I'll happily take your hand me downs when you get one out of interest how much would a 5 tonne trailer like yours cost second hand? I've got a tractor that would drag it no problem

I paid 5k for that one brand new in 2006 from A company in Wales, think they were called Davies machinery or something like that.
In the time we've had it it gets used for everything including timber extraction, laying out fencing materials, carrying culvert piping and another thing we can't be bothered man handling. In all the time we've had it we've only ever changed a couple of loader pipes and replaced a bolt on the trailer headboard that sheared off.  If only everything in life could be as reliable (and simple)
