That is pretty slick Steve. Looks like the application of theory learned in a high school physics class. The narrow trailer worked well with the width of the gantry that was used but it looks to have barely adequate load capacity for the mill. Also looks like a heavier tow vehicle would have been welcome, any more angle from vertical on the gantry and that Jeep would have been dragged rearward. I give those guys high marks for imagination and bravery.

It's my friend and I. He's a tool and die maker, he calculated the leg lengths and widths so his trailer would fit. The trailer axle is rated to 10,000lb, the springs maybe not :)

Nice BP, man! It's always scary to watch someone who really knows what they're doing.Like this week when a guy at work had to help me press some parts out and they went bang. Hoooo, he nearly shit his pants! Haha! My main concern with that setup would have been the bottom of the legs losing traction with the load in the air, but looks like you guys had it sorted!
