What is the unladen weight of the trailer and the weight of the machine?

yes I've used a couple of Brian James car transporter trailers over the years and are very well made ... tow like a dream and easy to manoeuvre off the vehicle (empty-of course) ;) ..... not seen his Ifor beater before :giggle: what length is that one Aiden ( @CPS )

I was thinking of one of there plant trailers which drew me to them, the flat bed suits me better now as it has more room for attachments with the loaders. That said id buy a nice Brian james plant trailer too if one came up:)

The machine is about 1.2 ton, the trailer carriers about 2.7 ton i think ... which means i can move the biggest loader no problem

I bought one of their 3.5 tonne Diggerplant trailers and have been really disappointed with it tbh. It’s cracked through the sides a number of times, even though it only carries 2 tonne tracked chippers. The jockey wheel clamp is crap too.
The 2.7 tonne Ifor GH trailers are stronger IME, but need the 3.5 tonne double leaf springs.

How is the touareg working out? My shogun has died and if I can't fix it I'm looking at getting one of these.
