    Trailering 3520

    I don't have access to a scale or this would be easy. Trying to center a 3520 onto an 18 foot flatbed so that the tandems are taking most of the load but still have enough going to the truck to keep everything stable. I know that there should be 10-15% of the loaded trailer weight on the tongue. I guess what I'm asking is has anyone weighed a 30xx series tractor with FEL and something like a RB to know how much each axle is supporting? With all the snow around I'm not going to take it for a ride on the trailer to see what feels the best.

    Just a wild guess because I don't know where your axles are centered but on an 18ft trailer with a 3520 and fel bucket laid flat, all the way forward. This assumes that you have counter weight on the rear of the tractor or other heavy implement.. I should also add that when driving forward the first few times you need to see the truck settle some and take up a load on the hitch. I suggest about 10% is correct for most trailers, the only type that is less is boat trailers which should run about 6%.



    My 110tlb on a 20ft trailer is best if I stop the loader bucket 6" from the front. So I have a 6x6 mounted up there as a stop block.

    Deere has done all that for you in this excel sheet. You can even choose if you have iron weight, filled tires, or any rear implement. Pretty cool. Look along the bottom for the different tractors.

    This reminds me of my first course in Structures in Architecture, will be interested in how this works out.
