Justifying a step deck

Posted by Ethan Chamberlain on November 03, 2012 at 20:59:30 from (

I have been tossing around the idea of getting a step deck trailer to haul my old machinery with. In the winter when im not working, i like to work on my older machinery.In the past, I have been known to get three or four pieces of machinery at one place that I have had to haul back one by one with my 3/4 ton ford and a gooseneck trailer. I have been putting alot of miles on my nice ford, and am afraid that I"m wearing it out with the heavy loads and don"t want to have something bust or let go on it. I have an older semi that I could pull a trailer with, it"s not the most powerful or the quickest, but I like it and it will do whatever I ask it to. I have been thinking of getting a trailer to put behind it, but am having a hard time justifying the cost of one because I only plan to use it in the winter season. Do you guys have any ideas for me that I could do with one that would help to pay for itself? I am not a trucker, I"m a hired man on an irrigated farm here in eastern Mt, so I do not plan on running a truck all year. For those of you who have gone to the truck/trailer setup over the pickup/trailer version, how have you justifyied it? Do you rent it out? Haul some tractors for a couple buddy"s? If you have any ideas, let me know. Thanks
