Re: Road Runner Sprayer trailer

I'm going to give you some biased advice. The roadrunner trailers looks like a fine piece of machinery and it would do almost any operator well. I also build transport cradles to use on step deck trailers. It does not look as tidy as a road runner but it has some redeeming features, like having the ability of the loading platforms to fold completely onto the deck of the trailer, satisfying transport canada regulations when your sprayer isn't on. It also removes in about 15 minutes allowing you to use your trailer for something else. A tridem step deck trailer equipped with this system can haul the biggest sprayers around, which is pretty difficult to do with a tandem trailer which by the way has the only purpose of hauling a sprayer. The tractor trailer system is the only way to go as far as I am concerned especially if something goes wrong with your truck in season it is pretty quick to get another one under your trailer. Pintle style trailers and body jobs are only good for small sprayers and tend to be overloaded on the steering axle causing you to "herd" the truck down the road when the water starts sloshing. You wont even feel it with a stepdeck. Vist my homepage at
