I have a 2015 Chevrolet 2500HD Truck and need to move my JD 5220 with Loader and Farmi Winch to another property I own. I have asked and asked around from dealer to loggers' to other tractor owners and I get that many different answers. It's so damn frustrating. The Tractor I would say is 10K lbs with implements? 12K max?
I just looked at a $1500 used Deck over Trailer with new brakes, lights etc. "24000 pound Trailer" on the placard with what on the tongue he didn't know. I have a logger friend who said he thought it would be quite a load on my Truck and there are two big hills to go up and down.
Can anyone Please help me so I don't get into a dangerous situation nor ripped off in a sale? New is not an option.
And Yes I am obviously still a "NEWBIE", so much so that when my wife asked what I'd like for Fathers Day I said "for my friend Robbie to come over, as a teacher, to do a full on service of all fluids hydraulics etc., ALL REGULAR MAINTAINENCE, with me.
As always thank you for your generous help with the Trailer Question.
