I've seen this on my way to work for about a month.

How and why would anyone flip a trailer over???

It makes it easier to remove all the running gear...

either they are working on it, or they have to leave it there for a long time. Makes it hard to steal.

Probably flipped it over with a boom crane.

Why - can't think of any good reasons. Removing axles would be easier with trailer as it rolls. Unless they wanted to weld something to the frame and didn't want to have to weld upside down (much harder).

How - many ways - small crane, large forklift, semi tow truck, any MC onwer if you told him someone wrecked their boat. It appears to be square to the building - so was definitely done on purpose & with care.

Stop by or call & find out.... Or PM me who they are & I'll call, now that I'm interested. We are in the heavy vehicle industry...

This is a common method to work on the axles and replace the tires. I flip ours over on its top with a forklift. No problem. Grab a side, lift, tilt and go.

I use a torch to loosen the lug nuts on the tires and I am sorry if that contributes to globl warming Jorski.

Oh wait, I am not sorry. I don't care what Jorski says, thinks or spews.

Hi Jorski

You still alive? I thought the word was ending ??????

With our troubled economic times, it would make it real hard for the repo man to get it!:rolleyes::D
