    I have not seen the shipping invoice yet so I dont know the weight of the swinger. What is the weight I should expect to be moving around. Mine has the heavy bumper and the hive clamps. So I guess this is to you Trevor since yours looks just like mine, what does it weigh?

    I cant wait until the truck gets here tomorrow. I cant wait to name it.

    Hey Mike, is this what you are looking for? Less than 5 minutes to load and head down the road. It is a tilt trailer. The back wheels of the forklift set between 2 square tubes. A chain is hooked across the hitch on the back of the forklift. Doesn't even need a binder to tighten the chain. The chain simply keeps the forklift from bouncing out of the 2 tubes that keeps it in place on trailer.

    Can you PM me or send me a link to more pictures closeups also. Would like to add that to my trailer build stock. Going to have one built. Keiths is a great one for quick on and off. Maybe I can get a few pic's from him.

    Here's the one that Dave Mendes uses for his bobcats. It seems a little heavy to me but I know they work well. http://tropictrailer.trailersusa.com...uty-fl-i291649

    Thanks for that I am looking for a more purpose built one that weighs just enough to do the job and is small enough to move the swinger. Length and weight are important for fuel and mobility purposes.

    Tropic Trailer dosent make them anymore ,they also wont work with a Swinger. They are great for Bobcats with casters though.

    Mike, Have you checked out Torklift Central in Kent? Everything they do has to do with trailers and they do fabrication.
