Hey guys i just got it home no issues what a ride and what a beast of a trailer. I paid 8500$ for it he has 3 or 4 more of them sitting in the yard
Our M923 didn't like it so we just bought a M915a1 for a good price rather than mess with anythingMy Globe was too much for my 929, I though....., but man what a candidate for a gooseneck if you have a 931. I have some of the heavy trailer hitch plates that would work perfect. Guys with 931s should be all over these trailers.
That works too.Our M923 didn't like it so we just bought a M915a1 for a good price rather than mess with anything
Hi tobyS,My Globe was too much for my 929, I though....., but man what a candidate for a gooseneck if you have a 931. I have some of the heavy trailer hitch plates that would work perfect. Guys with 931s should be all over these trailers.
I think someone even made a bed and attached with the kingpin, so removable.Hi tobyS,
That metal plate with the King Pin on it... About how wide and long is that? Just wondering if that could be made into a weight box to go on the 5th wheel on my tractor. That would make hauling a pintle trailer a LOT safer if the tractor has some weight on the back tires.
Just fishing Toby. It might be that by the time I shipped it from Indiana to North Carolina I may be upside down. Figure I don't know though if I don't ask
Strangely enough Toby, five hundred pounds isn't bad at all for a pretty tough bottom for a weight box. More than likely that much or more steel around it would be required to close it on 4 sides. Then another several thousand pounds of weight in the box to create enough down pressure on the rear tires.I think someone even made a bed and attached with the kingpin, so removable.
These things are really heavy....guess 500#. Top plate is 3/8 and bottom is 1/2. It's about 36" x 48".
I would think that would be enough weight. Guessing, but that much weight in a small space should help achieve the goal. The drawings that I have seen look a lot like the back of a 5th Wheel wrecker boom. Connection point one is the King Pin, Connection point two is the left and right frame rails. If memory serves me, there are ratchet binders to tie the back end down securely. (BIG binders!) Crummy picture below:Would be easy to connect but you have two axis to support. I have bridge steel that could make a 2 ton bed.
Not everyone can say they bought a bridge.....I did.....90 tons.
