    Would you haul a 4010 MCUT on this?

    I need a trailer but my budget is limited. I found this and think it might work. I could possibly get a second axel for it and I'm pretty handy with a welder. The biggest load would be my 4010 with*FEL, brush hog and box blade. I figure that's right around 2800lbs. Most of my trips would be to my deer lease 25 miles away on a two lane country highway and about 4 miles down a dirt road. Probably take that trip 3-4 times a year tops.

    well that's not such a bad price for it. but my youngest son just bought a axle for a customers trailer. it was a 3500 hundred pound axle with brakes and wheels was around $700. then u need a set of springs, and the hardware for the second axle. his axle he bought was a strange axle to me. it went on a Triton aluminum trailer,30 footer, 3 axle, no springs on it. trailer was used to haul snowmobiles. i think i would keep looking for a tandem axle trailer for ur needs, and no shorter than a 16 footer-ok. good luck

    I would ask the guy how it tows empty down the road. From the looks of it the axle is in the center of the trailer. That would mean there is not much tongue weight , and trailers like to wiggle around with no tongue weight. Also check to see if any leaf springs are broken.

    I wouldn't. 5' is awful narrow, and there's a lot more to higher gvw trailers than just the number of axles. That particular one almost looks homemade. I might cart a riding mower around on it, but not much more.

    Just my opinion.

    Nope I wouldn't.
    How old is the trailer?
    3500 lb axle doesn't mean much if the frame is only good for 2000 lbs.
    A tire blow out is going to be tough to fix if the trailer is loaded vs a dual axle.
    Will probably need a rear support stand for loading.
    How much is your equipment worth?
    I'd want brakes.

    I wouldn't. Keep in mind that it has one 3500 lb axle. Subtract out what the trailer weighs and that's what you're left with for cargo capacity. I would guess that if you loaded 2800 lbs on it, you'd be over it's capacity.

    That trailer doesn't look to be built heavy enough regardless of the axle capacity. Could be a single 5k axle and I'd still hate to load much more than a couple light weight zero turns on it.

    Keep shopping. I don't think 5' wide is going to be enough. I bought a 6'X10' just so my 54" deck would fit. Really wanted a 14' long one but I didn't think my tow vehicle could handle it.

    Also that trailer doesn't look heavy duty enough for your tractor.

    I'm not familiar with your tractor so I can't comment on the weight limits. I bought an 18' car hauler with steal deck from a dealer for $900. I knew it had a bent axle so I replaced them both. The axles were $150 each. The U-bolt kit was $20 per axle. A spare wheel and radial tire was another $100. A break axle was $300 each had I needed all new brakes. Parts may be cheaper in your area but it's something to consider. Good luck with your search.
