Stud-King header trailers

Dealer is trying to sell us a 38 ft. Stud-King header trailer for our Cat 40' maxflex straight head. Two tire dolly up front, then two axles in back, of which the front axle has brakes. Also has lights. has 15" highway implement tires on it rated for 55 mph 9.5L15 sound right? Are these trailers any good?

We are selling them at work now, and they look like a heavy trailer, the beams are massive. I've only heard good things about them.

Re: Stud-King header trailers

We have a 38 ft and really like it. It is a heavy b*stard, you know it is back there empty behind a pickup. We have nothing but good things to say. We have the ribbed "combo" tire as well, never really paid a whole lot of attention the speed rating and are getting along well...

I have a 40 ft and think it is a good trailer. I have a 35 ft maxflex on it. It is real nice to set the header on and be able to move the hold downs to where ever you wish. The trailer trails very nice on the highway and on rough roads. It has the torsion suspension which is nice. It is built heavey and I don't think it will ever give any trouble. Good luck

Re: Stud-King header trailers

We have 38' for our JD 635F head. It has just 1 axle in the back which is adequate for the short distances we travel and is more manuverable in tight quarters. It also has just 2 header frame saddles which are a little weak so we might add 2 more next season. Other than that, it is a well built trailer. There's a pic of our model here:
http://www.md-products.com/header.html

In the pic it shows the header saddles pointing outward of the trailer. You should turn them around so they point inward so that the front of the header is resting on the front edge of the yellow poly skid pads and NOT on the sickle guards. But that's when you'll see that 2 saddles will bow down slightly and thus the reason for adding 2 more of them. This is how it is with Deere flexheads so you'll want to do a little measuring to see how other brands (such as Cat) will set on the trailer.
