    1026R Trailer

    Just curious....what are the specs on trailers people use to haul the 1026 with attachments? I'm thinking mower deck, FEL, maybe snowblower. I keep looking on craigslist but I'm not sure what specs I should be looking for. Weight specs? Ball hitch or pintle? Single axel? Brakes? Thanks.

    At 1,500 for the tractor and in the blower and FEL I'd be guessing 2,500-3,000.

    This is right on the verge of where you bump from a single axel to dual. If it were me, I'd be looking for a car hauler - they are the most abundant type while looking used. 7,000GVWR, tandem axel, 4 wheel brakes, 16-18 foot. You could get away with a single axel, but I wouldn't recommend hauling the blower and loader at the same time then - either the blower or loader. It's not as much weight but the single axels are typically going to be shorter as well and you don't have as much room to balance your load.

    I haul my 1026r TLB on a single axle trailer that's 14 ft long and it isn't very fun. The trailer just doesn't pull well with my 3/4 ton dodge. I'm looking for a two axle trailer to give it a smoother ride.

    I use a dual axle 7000lb 16' utility trailer towed by a Dodge Ram 2500. The tractor is heavy and you can feel the weight on the trailer, it is surprising. It would be at the upper limit of a single axle trailer for sure. As far as brakes go, I think it could have a lot to do with your local laws. Here is a picture of it on the trailer so you can get a good feel for it.

    I use a 20' 10k car trailer. I can get the 1026 with the snowblower and a atv on the trailer.

    I did a lot of research on the same JD1026R w FEL, MMM and some other implements and I came down to a Landscape Utility #7000 HD 4' gate 76" wide X 16' long. The frame work on the sides are great to tie to and weld up some extensions for custom crafting. Since I have a blower mounted to the 60" MMM deck, I am opting for the 82" wide trailer otherwise I will have to take it off to load everytime as its just too snug. Without the blower, a 76" wide would be fine. Tandem axle and brakes are a MUST no matter what the state requirements. You will only get pushed through a traffic light once or crush someones rear end and wish you spent a couple hundred bucks more for those brakes Make: CURRAHEE Model: 854.SG102 w optional HD tailgate.

    I was tossing about the car hauler idea but after I welded up some frame work, I'd be back in the same price range not to mention the beaver tail tearing up the ground.

    Lots of good advice. Thanks.
    Does a tandem axel use a pintle hitch? Or can a ball hitch carry that much weight?

    A tandem axle doesn't necessitate a pintle hitch. You can get a trailer with a GVW rating of 14,000 lbs or more with a ball. For your needs, a ball either 2 5/16" or 2" will be more than plenty. I have on overkill trailer for a 1026R and it's associated goodies. It's a 20' 10,400 GVW car hauler with brakes on both axles.

    I'm going to move this thread to the trailer section for a better fit.

    A ball hitch will be fine, and far more common. Most 7K GVW trailers will have a 2" ball hitch.

    DS already answered your question, but no, tandem axel doesn't equal pintle, if you said tandem wheels and axels, then more than likely. You'd be surprised how much a ball can handle! My new 14k trailer uses a ball.
