    Yep. Those trailers are pretty much what I'm looking at. The one Im considering has 3 axles with single tires. I'm just curious how well my truck would pull forward to raise a heavy load up over the 3 axles with the trailer brakes on. I'd hate to use the winch every time, and if I had 8 tons of hay stacked on there and it wouldnt come up (truck tires spinning in gravel, etc,) theres no way to run the winch cable under the hay, around the pulley, and onto the back of the tandems. That would be easy to load and unload the hay tilted down, though.

    The original post mentions sliding axles then the op got huffy when Stimw as well as myself mentioned mechanical slides. What with very limited info about the trailer in the original post, I for one was trying to be helpful. Hope your trailer works out for you. Goodbye!

    I dont get huffy about much, especially online discussions about trailers. I appreciate any input from anyone willing to contribute!

    I had to reread all the posts. Didn't see anything huffy from the OP at all. Only huffy post I see is stimw's yelling response to me. Still don't know what that was about.

    I'm with the OP, sliding axles aren't worth getting upset over. But then maybe I missed something.

They will be really heavy.

    I believe semi truck slide axles slide by pulling the pins, setting the trailer brakes, and driving the tractor forward or aft.

    I've seen low flatbeds where the axles slide all the way forward for loading, they appeared to be mechanically assisted.
