    Do you move your tractor around when needed on a trailer?

    Lets discuss if you own a trailer for your tractor or if you have someone else move your tractor around if needed.

    I bought a trailer big enough to haul my 345 GT yet small enough to pull around the land with the 345 and haul wood, etc.

    It only has a 5 x 10 deck. I think it MIGHT hold the 2305 without the deck and loader but not sure. I plan to try it someday. It wouldn't be ideal but might get me to the dealer a few miles away.

    I do have access to a car trailer if needed.

    I bought an 18 ft car hauler a few months ago. Mainly to haul my 2520 and implements to our deer lease about 80 miles away. But...it has been very convenient for so much more being able to load off the sides with my forks.Click image for larger version.

    I have two trailers. I only have GTs, so I can get by with smaller trailers. I have one 4 x 8 HF trailer that I use when I only carry one GT without deck and for other stuff. I also have a 6 x 14 single axle trailer with a 5 foot ramp gate. I can get two GTs on it.

    Deck overs are a pain

    I bought a 20' deck over trailer with a 12k capacity. It is nice and I don't have to worry about damaging fenders when loading/unloading big (800lb)square bales of hay. The deck is the same height as the bed on my Chevy 2500HD. I have a earthen built up ramp that I can back up to and drive on with the tractor but the destination is a problem. Another thread had a link to discount ramps and I'm looking at a set of 8' ramps that will hold the weight of my tractor. It's been a trade-off between having lots of deck space and/or having big ramps and having a tractor way up high on the trailer.

    I am lucky that both of my neighbors to the left and the right are also my best friends. Both have trailers big enough to haul my 2320 including mower deck and FEL. And both have trucks strong enough to pull those loaded trailers!

    My landscape trailer wasn't heavy duty enough for my 3320 so I traded it in for this 7 by 16 dump trailer. It's worked great so far.
