    Bri Mar 12' Tilt trailer for SCUT

    Has anyone had any experience using a tilt trailer for a 2305 sized tractor? it is rated for GVRW of 6000 lbs so am assuming I can put 4700 lbs of weight on it, GVWR - empty weight (1360#). Thoughts? Would be using for tractor, mower and bucket at times, no BH...or tractor and snowblower

    Thanks

    A 12' trailer for that combo isn't long enough. And I have an aversion to tilt trailers myself.

    I don't know if the dimensions are the same as the 2305, but my 1023e fits on a 12' trailer with the loader on

    But how do you move the tractor forward or back to get the proper weight distribution?

    Not sure what you mean. Loader forces most of tractor weight onto rear wheels on trailer...

    To get the proper amount of weight on the hitch.

    Isn't most of the weight supposed to go over the wheels on a trailer? Keeps the weight OFF hitch

    I have a single axle trailer that is 12 feet long and 6˝ feet wide. I use it to haul my 1026 with a loader and BB or tiller hooked to it all at the same time. Works great.

    Thought the rule of thumb was 10% of load weight on the hitch....

    I go by the way my truck sits after it's hooked up and loaded. Don't like the front or back of the truck sitting to high because of it. I like traction on both the front and rear of my truck.
