    With 1023e with loader fit in my trailer..

    hi guys.. me again..ha!.. With still another month to go before I get my tractor.. I keep thinking of questions to ask and here's one thats kind of important.. I have 120 inches in my trailer.. Will this thing fit with the loader and 3pt?.. I can take the ramp/gate off at the back if I need to I suppose.. But its not designed to come off from what I can tell.. The pins for the gate are crimped I think and are gonna take some real effort to get out.. Of course a problem is only a big deal if you make it a big deal so I'll make other arrangements if I necc.. Just wondered if someone would mind running a tape measure along a 1023/25/or 26 with a loader and 3pt to confirm length.. If it is to long, can the bucket be curled in a bit to gain a few inches?.. Is it a hassle to remove the 3pt arms to gain a few inches as well?.. Just wonder if I can squeeze this thing down to 120" so I don't have to remove the gate or rent a larger trailer.. Thanks!

    Can't help you on the length of a 1 series but curious of the weight rating on your trailer. Tractors are heavy, just making sure you keep that in mind.

    With the bucket flat on the ground it is 10' to the back of the rear wheels and 11' 6" to the back of the three point hitch arms. The arms come off easy and the bucket can be rolled to be well under 10'.

    Weight may be an issue with a 10' trailer. I would not carry it far and would be very careful even of the weight is within the rating.

    Gotcha'!.. Ok, the gross weight rating on the sticker for my trailer is 3000#.. Do ya' think thats enough trailer for one of these things?.. Tractor 1400lbs wet.. The loader I'm guessing is 300 or 400lbs.. Is it more?.. Is it less?.. Trailer itself weighs 730lbs I believe. I'll have to double check the sticker.. Puts me at 2300 to 2500lbs.. Thoughts?.. The truck I'll be using is new and the trailer is new with almost no miles on it so no concern with tires or weak metal and the axle will sit about dead center under the center of the tracter my my estimation.. But I don't want to play with fire either.. I'll have to tow this thing for about 3hrs on a pretty good size highway.. 110km's p/hr (60 to 65 mph).. Might look for a back way.. It'll add alot of time to the trip but safety 1st I suppose.. Thanks to all for any further input..

    I think you will get a lot of sway with that trailer. I am not saying you cannot do it, but you are skirting the limits of the single axle trailer. Not to mention at those speeds. If you have any weights or fluid to the tires you will be at or over the limit of the trailer. Just my $.02!

    I "Second" BillyS. Your pushin it! Three hours of Highway Speeds Maxed Out? I wouldn't feel too comfortable! I tow quite a bit. My absolute fear is not being able to get the weight forward of the axel enough to get sufficient Tongue weight to negate the tail "wag swaying"! I'd explore your options Seriously! It's not " Kind of important" it's "Paramount Importance"!!!! I've had the trailer "wag"/sway, and once it starts, their's no 'getting it back' breaking or no! Don't take a chance! Make two trips, find a Pick-up truck buddy that could haul the loader, or something! Don't take a chance my friend! You've got too much to lose!!! ~Scotty

    Edit: Just re-read! You say the "truck I'll be using...."! If it's a Pick up, Have the dealer put the loader in it! Then you can adjust weight on the trailer better! Be careful! ~S~

    Just went through the same process this week to transport my new 1023E home. I was at about 2200 lbs for tractor, loader and mower. For $65 I rented a 6x12 flatbed trailer with trailer tilt for the day. The tilt made it a piece of cake (or is it easier than pie?) to load and unload. Spent another $10 to rent heavy duty ratchet tie downs. I hooked the trailer up to my diesel Grand Cherokee and did an easy 300 mile round trip. I would say spend a little extra to get the right tool for the job. It's a drop in the bucket compared to what you are paying for the tractor.

    Make sure you drive the tractor far enough forward to load the trailer hitch to prevent sway. Also, if you use an open bed trailer as I did, park the tractor backwards to prevent the wind from catching the hood and tearing it off. I also bungied the seat and mower chute to keep them from flopping in the wind.

    I seem to remember the weight of the H120 being more like 600lbs. Either way I think you'd be pushing it going that distance, especially at 65mph. I agree with Scotty, put the loader in the bed of the truck if possible.

    I agree with the others, that trailer will be on the bare edge of what it can do. I would look into renting a flatbed trailer, or perhaps hiring to have it delivered.

    Putting the loader in the truck is an option, but may be tricky to get it out when you get home.

    I think the gate will be an issue. It will prbably not handle the wheel loads when you load it. Rent a trailer and save the one you have to pull behind the tractor. Be safe.
