    Trailer Ramps to load/unload 1025 R with backhoe

    Just picked up my new 1025 with bucket, mmm, and backhoe. I got it on my 10x5 dump trailer nicely and back home. Problem is the ramps that are included with the dump trailer are about 4.5 feet long and too steep/short and the backhoe bottoms out when trying to load/unload. I'm looking for some setup to enable me to do this easily and would love some suggestions?

    We were able to get it on at the dealer by loading on a hill, but that isn't feasible everywhere.

    Thoughts?

    - Some blocks, or 4x6s under the ramps to reduce the steepness and provide slight bump off the ground?
    - Others?

    How about unhooking the trailer from your truck and jacking up the front of the trailer before unloading. Just make sure you don't raise it too high that the back end bottoms out when unloading the tractor. It sounds like you just need a couple of inches. Maybe put a 6x6 across the back underneath so it doesn't bottom out.

    You could put it in 4wd and use the backhoe to push down and lift the rear some while backing off. When I load an excavator into my dump I use the arm and bucket as a drag. Is there no dirtpile to offload into? Drive into a ditch or something?

    I'm brand new to this unit and no experience with it, so wasnt' looking to do my first lesson of using the backhow on a dismount. There isn't a dirtpile easily accessible, but I'm scouting the neighboorhood. Looks like I will have a project once I get it unloaded.

    I was hoping for some other type of ramp setup to enable me to do this easily in the future. But open to any suggestion to get the new toy off safetly

    Not sure how your ramps hook on the back of the trailer, but being a dump trailer could you raise the bed to lesson the steepness of the ramps?

    I'd say head back to the trailer dealer and trade up to get a longer trailer with longer ramps. Heck with looking for berms or hills.

    I do this all the time,,,
    simply lift the dump bed until you have a shallow angle that suits you,,,

    I usually don't do it because something hits,,
    I just do not like driving up the steep ramps,,



    It would be impossible to load this Cub Cadet and mower with the bed down,,,

    Longer ramps, they aren't expensive and you can store them inside the trailer when transporting. I would get them long enough that the loading and unloading with the trailer is perfectly level is ideal, probably 6 to 7 foot. Get aluminum ramps as the are lightest and will meet weight requirements. Make sure the ramps are rated for 3,500 lbs as ny time you have the tractor FEL and backhoe on the trailer, its going to be north of 1 ton in weight for sure.

    These are ideal in weight rating, length, width, they have the crown to assist in unloading and Northern is a great company to deal with. They stand behind their products and they don't sell junk.

    About 30 pounds a piece and they fold for easy handling. And they are on sale with Free Shipping......

    Congratulations on your new tractor

    This could work also, not sure where the angle is to steep if you're worried about the centre of the trailer or bottom of the ramps. My trailer is much taller than yours guessing by the photo, I wouldn't even attempt to put my 1025 in there but i also have other options and for you its what works. If the backhoe bucket touches raise the arm, if the unit hoe itself seems to touch the dirt id say put it in 4 wheel and push on through. Lots of guys take their units into the woods and I'm sure have bumped a stump here and there. I don't think you'll break it, if you have a mid mount mower i would be worried about catching that on something though.

    Had to edit to add welcome and add photos and if were lucky a video doing it!

    Can't recommend unhooking

    I would suggest unhooking the trailer and then moving equipment on it is a bad idea. If there's any slope or softness in the ground the trailer will become an unstable see saw. There are lots of instances where truck trailer combinations slide down a hill just because the rear end of the truck lost traction and braking when a piece of equipment was being loaded or unloaded. No truck at all means no brakes on the trailer.

    Have you tried backing the TLB onto the trailer? That might work but you will have to see if it affects the trailer tongue weight.
