I have searched and looked at many threads but haven't found an answer to my question, sorry if it been answered. I am looking to purchase a trailer to tow my 1026r with loader and backhoe. One of the trailer dealers claims it's too big for a landscape trailer and I need to buy a heavy equipment trailer, claims the landscape type trailers need the weight more spread out, is this true? I prefer the landscape type trailer due to the side rails making it a little more versatile in my mind. Part 2 of question is does anyone have experience with Belmont trailers vs carry on? Thanks

I have a 16' 7k# landscape trailer I haul my 1025R with. I have had no problems with it, the trailer is new, no bends or cracks. I tow my tractor weekly to mow lawns and do odd jobs with it and no problem. These tractors do not weigh that much really. I have a Kaufman trailer, I am very happy with it, working with Kaufman was easy and a very good experience. My boss was impressed with the build quality of the trailer since I had it shipped to the shop where we unloaded it. He said he will most likely call them up when he needs a new trailer because no one could beat their price.

Good Luck

It would depend on the landscape trailer. They come in all sizes and weight ratings. What is the trailer you are looking at?

I use a 16' tandem axle utility trailer with side rails to haul my my 1025 with the back hoe and loader installed on the tractor. With this I still have room and weight capacity to haul several implements at the same time. It is not an equipment trailer.

It all depends on how a trailer is made. Calling a trailer a landscape trailer or a utility trailer doesn't mean much.

I'd get a 18 or 20' trailer with 7 or 10k gross that's meant to haul wheeled equipment. With removable sides and plenty of tie down points.

Either trailer has plenty of capacity for the 1026 with loader and back hoe. You still have extra capacity for detached implements to haul with it.

Trailer woes

As far as Belmont vs Carry-On - There are literally thousands of independent trailer manufacturers spread throughout the United States. I've heard of neither manufacturer that you mention, here in Ohio. I can tell you that you want a trailer composed of c-channel or angle iron vs box steel. Box holds moisture inside the tube and will rot out much faster than the others. You'll generally find c-channel framing in the heavier-duty trailers. Next, your tractor is going to weigh-in at about 2,300 to 2,500 lbs. If that's all you're ever going to haul, that's all the trailer you're going to need. But, for longevity, I'd chose a trailer that'll haul twice your anticipated "normal" load. Either way, make sure your trailer comes with brakes! You'll have to install a brake controller on your vehicle, but you'll appreciate them in the long run.

I just bought a PJ 18' U8 (83" wide channel frame) tandem 3.5k axle utility trailer with a 2' dovetail and a 4' heavy duty ramp gate last week. I went back and forth in my mind between a car hauler model vs. a utility model. In the end I decided on the utility model simply for the fact that I will only be hauling a small tractor around (1025TLB). If I ever thought I had plans to haul a car regularly or a larger tractor, I would have gone with the more expensive car hauler and put low sides on it.

Here is a picture of a similar trailer. The only difference is mine is black rather than green and I went with a dovetail since I'll be hauling the tractor with the belly mower from time to time.

Wow, I feel left out. I bought my trailer way back in '93. It's 12 ft. long and 6ft.6in. wide. It only has 1 axle. Hauled all my tractors over the years including my latest (1026R). I hauled the 1026 with the loader and tiller attached and it all fit and the trailer did great. It also has a ramp rear tail gate and no brakes. Always careful when I do any hauling. Works for me. :unknown:

Check out Hudson Bros. trailers. I have a 14 foot, 5K, single axle with electric brakes and cleated ramps that has a 3500lb capacity. I used it
for my 2320 and will use it for my 1025r TLB. By my calculation the 1025r TLB is 2621lbs (1440lb tractor, 610 bh and 571 loader).
I bought it used, but there is a dealer in Middleton, NH - About Middleton Equipment Sales.
Good luck.
