I'm considering the purchase of a 5'x10' single axle utility trailer to haul firewood, mulch, etc. The dimensions are sufficient for my 2720, but I'm concerned about the weight.
According to the owners' manual:
- 1973 lbs for the tractor without attachments
- ??? for ballasted tires
The trailer I'm considering has a GVWR of 2990lbs and an empty weight of 740lbs; it is not equipped with a brake system. GVWR minus empty weight tells me it should be able to carry 2250lbs of payload.Does anyone know how much the tire ballast weighs?
Does anyone else carry their 2720 (without equipment) in a 5x10 trailer?
I'd only use the trailer if I needed to take the tractor to the dealer (about 30 miles away) for repairs. Recommendations / cautions are most welcomed.
