Lets see some pics of your BX,'s, B's and L's on your trailers to see how your tractor fits on your trailer. Tell what size trailer you have and if you like the set up or would like to change trailer type or size or both and why. Do you have room for extra implements ? Is your trailer Low Profile, BeaverTail or Deck Over? Ladder Ramps or Slide In ramps? If you dont have a pic of your tractor on your trailer then how about describe your set up and if you like it or want to change it. I'm considering the different trailer options, wondering what works best and what to stay away from. Seems like a good idea to have those ramps with a foot to the ground or rear stabilizer jacks or something similar so the trailer and rear of truck don't raise up off the ground when loading and unloading a heavy tractor. What do you guys have ?

I hadn't got all the straps wrapped up, but I wrap them up to prevent them from flying around in the wind.

Trailer is 12,000lbs rated trailer. Trailer weighs ~2,700lbs. If I have the bucket and box blade on, tractor weight is ~6,500. SUV is rated for 9,200lbs of towing.

Trailer is 20 feet, split loading ramp, and brakes on both axles.

Here's my BX25 in my dump trailer. It's an awesome combo. This dump trailer is a 10,000 lb with loading ramps. This was when I first got the trailer. I load it backwards now because frontways the backhoe hit the ground when I backed it out or drove it in.

BX24 on an 18ft Liberty 7,000 lb car hauler. Ramps slide in the side and I have wood blocks I put under the back of the trailer when loading the tractor. I looked at several different brands of trailers and picked the Liberty because it has brakes on both axles and the ramps are stamped steel opposed to the angle iron ramps most trailers have.

How long is your trailer? 20' ?
Yes, 20 ft.

You asked if there was anything I would change, I would like an F250 to pull it with. The SUV does fine no further than we haul it, but I would like a little bigger vehicle to pull it with. Yet since we have a daughter in college, will have to make do for a little while.

I like how those dump trailers can do double duty: 1- haul your tractor and, 2- haul and dump (dirt,sand,stone,logs,branches).

B2650 on 16 foot Holmes landscape trailer. This is the trailer I used for part time landscaping business when I had my old BX23.

I'd like to upgrade the trailer to an 18 foot aluminum flat deck trailer with a dovetail and stake pockets.

I went with the car hauler since there are no side rails to interfere with side loading. Fold up ramps interfere with loading pallets from the rear with a forklift unless there is enough room between them. I built removable sides for hauling loose materials. Stake pocket mounted D-rings work better for hooking tie downs to than hooking them under the stake pockets.

I have a 24' pipe top tilt trailer that I carry my L6060 on. There is room for the Tractor with the front loader or the limb cutter on the front and a 6' bush hog on the back. I could load additional implements and let the bush hog hang off the back a tad.

Crazy enough: I bought this tilt trailer in New Orleans LA from a scrap dealer who pulled it out of his pile. It was missing an axle, was rusted to heck and of course had rotten deck boards. I gave $400 for it.....

Looks really nice, I had thoughts of doing something similar to get more use out the trailer besides hauling the tractor.

Next time you find a need to replace the wooden deck boards.... consider replacing them with 6” or 8” C-purlins from your metal-bldg supply. They’ll outlive you AND your great grandkids and make the trailer a LOT stronger if you weld them together at the cross-supports.

I did this when I mfr’d a trailer from an axle-only and it’s also been very helpful to reposition items on the trailer as that metal floor makes it easy. At the same time I fabricated “telescoping-stilts” at the rear corners using pipe inside larger pipe and 1/2” pins to support the rear of the trailer when driving heavy equipment onto the trailer.

I had hoped to be able to use my 10K Dump Trailer to haul my M4700DT but the tractor wheel-width is 1” too wide. :(

This is a pretty normal haul, it seems like I always have a couple attachments with me.
