What is mounted on that vibroseis buggy? Can't really tell from
the pictures but it looks like the plate is missing and some sort of rack ...

It's a mini vibe. Has a 300 lb mass for doing shear work. It's one of only a couple that are in use. That machine is 18' bumper to bumper.

That's is a cool looking unit. We worked on a project with a mini vibe in Miami Florida earlier this year. They had that thing running down city streets through neighborhoods.

The tracked machine I will be hauling is a seismic weight drop unit.

That's pretty much how we operate. We tow a landstreamer behind the vibe. Very fast, very high resolution. We can do up to 7 km per 8 hour day, in 3 components.

That is pretty cool. You could get a ton of production once set up. Must be for really shallow work. We use 1C nodes and put hundreds of them out. Most our targets are 3,000 to 12,000' deep.

Yup, we're looking at a max of 1000', although we do have a large vertical mass for deeper stuff.

I had a 25+5 GN with 12K axles. It was rated at 25K. If I had to do it again i would get a tri axle with 8K units so I didn't have to deal with the duals and could run common size 16" tires.

Kaufman trailers is a good bang for the buck. I believe they have a 12k axle option.
