Not having any issues moving 10-11 yards of this cherty soil. Moved about 50 loads today so far. I think the tractor would handle the 16 ton trailer based on this performance. Trailer hasn’t missed a beat, and the walking beam suspension is awesome.
I’m glad that my trailer manufacturer recommendation worked out for you, that is a beast of a trailer, my 2 ton version is a great asset and gets a lot of use.

moved over 1000 yards of dirt in 2.5 days, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this size combo, (still wishing I went with a bigger trailer) but it works, and the quality is good.

had a couple hiccups with them along the way, but I would buy from Bill again.

getting a ton of use out of this setup, had to replace a culvert that washed out. With the tailgate I’m able to put 14 yards in the trailer. Taking 30 min round trips like a champ. Really could have gone to the bigger trailer, tractor has no issues pulling it. Taking off in M4 then shifting to H range

Incredible! Does the trailer have electric brakes, and if so, do you have/need a brake controller in the cab to operate them?

I ordered this one with no brakes at the advice of the manufacturer. They said if you use it a lot, high speeds, or going down hill loaded get brakes. If not, they are going to be problems with a lot of sitting. This sat since Feb then being used like a rented mule this weekend

Thanks, and thanks for the photos. Those are amazing trailers and surprisingly light given what they're made of and capable of hauling. The 1/4" plate on the floor and sides of the box is really nice.

I talked to my guy driving the tractor, he said he’s having to gear down going down to the culvert and the trailer is pushing. So we’re about the limit for weight and downhill grade without brakes. Gonna haul enough of this chert material to make it look like a highway before pouring concrete next week and turn it in to a low water bridge
