    Minimum trailer length 1025R TLB

    Subject is minimum length feasible for hauling 1025r TLB.. I've read through the post on trailering a 1025r TLB .Its all good information but I still have not develop a justifiable concept on practical minimum length. I want to use the trailer for other uses, trash to land fill, mulch for landscaping, etc. I would like to pull it behind tractor to spread mulch in yard. Would rather not take it down to the cross roads to turn it around. Using for tractor transport to dealer no more than 50 mile round trip. That being said. Removal of bucket for transportation could I get by with 12 foot tandem? Maybe backing on trailer? Appreciate any feedback. Thanking you in advance.

    Sounds about right, I think I had a 12dt uhaul with parts hanging off. I later learned a 16ft is the sweet spot or perfect length.

    I have a 14 foot enclosed trailer that I haul mine to the dealer with and it just fits when I have the loader and backhoe on.

    I'm not sure you really want the 'minimum length', right? 16' is the optimal length.

    X2 with Tim. 16' lets you balance the load of the tractor front to rear.

    OP, I was doing research on a trailer back in late fall.
    I too just wanted what I needed and didn’t want to get carried away and end up with “too much trailer”.
    I have a TLB as well but with the blower attached is quite long and you cannot lift it over the front rail of a trailer like you can with a FEL.
    If I wanted to bring the blower in for service then I needed it attached to the tractor and did not want to be forced to take off my backhoe just to fit the tractor and blower on a shorter trailer.

    I went with a 16’ in the end and am very happy with the choice.

    I have a 14' dual axle utility trailer. With the BH and FEL attached, the tractor will not fit with the FEL lowered. I have to a haul it with the bucket raised above the ramp gate.
    So, if you want to haul the tractor with the BH and FEL attached and be able to lower the bucket to the floor of the trailer, 16' is minimum.

    I also have a 12' long dump trailer. I can get the 1025R in the dump trailer with the FEL and Heavy Hitch 3 point weight bar attached, but the FEL must be kept raised and hangs out over the rear of the trailer and the heavy hitch weight bar must be lifted so that it is above the front.

    IMO, I don't think it is practical to have one trailer to haul the tractor on and also use the same trailer to pull around the yard to do yard work. A 16' trailer is way to long to use for yard work.

    I forgot to mention that I have to have the backhoe cocked off to one side in order for it to fit.

    I bought my 1025 TLB + trailer as a package deal. It's a 16+2 trailer (16ft flat + 2ft ramp). It is a bit large for the tractor, but the cost difference between that and a smaller one is negligible. That, and I want to be able to pull a car home now and then.
