    Trailer recommendations

    I have a new 3033r coming with a 375a backhoe, H165 loader.

    I have a 16' dual axle 10k trailer. Truck is a F 250 powerstroke with rear bags.

    Will the tractor fit on the trailer?

    16' may be too short without it hanging off on both ends. It will be difficult to get the load balanced right as well since there won't be any fore/aft room to move the tractor. You only choice may be to load it forwards vs backwards. Weight wise you should be fine.


    BTW, I moved this to the truck/trailer forum for a better fit and more responses.

    With the FEL and backhoe I also think you'll bee a little short, especially to tow "legally" with the two buckets on the trailer deck.

    How often do you need to tow it? Just getting home or every week?

    You should have no problem getting it on there but the backhoe may hang off the back or you may need to hang the bucket over the trailer hitch. You could put the bucket in the box of the truck to get the tractor farther forward on the trailer.

    I don't think very often but I have a house 3 hrs north that I'll take it to from time to time.

    Outside of there maybe 2 to 3 times a month max on the trailer.

    I'm sure you'll be able to get it home on the 16ft. From there you can see how much of a hassle it is load and get balanced and then decide if you want to get a bigger trailer. Every trailer is a bit different.

    Not much for me to add. Like others have said, try your trailer and see how it works for you. You may find it works fine for your needs.

    The tractor should fit, but you're going to have a very tough time setting it up to tow legally with the backhoe on there. I had an 18' trailer with 24" beavertail (16' flat) and my 2520 fit comfortably (and it doesn't have a backhoe). The ballast box had about 6" that didn't sit on the flat part of the deck once it was properly positioned.

    You'll have to try it out and see how it goes. Keep in mind that positioning the machine for proper weight on the tongue is part of the "measurement". You can't tow safely (let along legally) if you shove the machine too far forward just to get the backhoe to not protrude through the ramps.

    Yeah, good point. My gut says it'll be to small. Sucks because I just got this trailer a couple years ago and it wasn't cheap at all.

    So, if I have to swap to something bigger what size should I get?

    18' or 20' and 10k or 14k???

    Steel or aluminum??
