I was like you, trying to compare trailers. I liked the Brute but the extra cost was not worth it to me. About $4K plus going 1K to pick it up. I looked at the Red Rhino but the paint job was poor and I was worried about wear in the locking slide after some use to cause sag. Two others in my area got Performance 32" with the 10" dove. The dealer now was selling Load Max, which I bought a 34" with a 10" dove instead of a 9" one. The biggest difference was the smaller cylinders on the dove. I had them increased to 4". It has a fixed over center bracket that supports the dove, not the cylinders or pins. I have not used it much but so far I am glad I got the 10" dove. My 580K hoe drags some on the ground loading and unloading but I loaded a 08 Duramax without lifting the dove. I have not tried to lift anything on the dove to test it. The only thing I don"t like so far is the narrow and high steps. I plan to widen them. The powder coat looks nice but chips easy. I put a Harbor Freight 12K winch and solar charger on it. I now need another fuel tank for the 6.7. It dropped from 12 - 15 to about 8 - 9 with the GN.
