    KL123, I hauled my 2U backwards so I could barely see over the top of the blade and down the sides of the trailer. If I turn it around and put the blade on the upper deck I can’t see anything behind me.

    hey that's a nice picture OilSlick !

    -i've wondered why i've never seen dozers loaded backwards, can't see it being more difficult either way...or any downsides..

    I put mine on backwards as I prefer to back up the ramp

    Loading from the back I prefer to back on and drive off. Cant see where it makes any difference hauling. I think most are forward on the detachable's as they are backing on also.
