Can't load or offload tractor with box blade or belly mower attached.
1025R has no ground clearance, 3 point don't lift box blade high enough and my trailer ramps are too short.

This calls for cribbing up the ramps I have with wood, or buying a set of, I suspect, at least 8' aluminum ramps.
Either choice will require to tote the dang things with me. Not happy about that.

Not as concerned about transporting with belly mower, but I need to have the box blade along with me.

The hands down easiest solution is back the trailer in a ditch, or up to a hill. I don't think I can count on that every time I move this thing.
My other choice would be to load & offload the box blade with the bucket, but would rather not.
Bear in mind I will be off road, not on concrete.

Anyone suggest a decent set of aluminum ramps that won't hurt my billfold too bad?

Thanks

Try this...I do it daily to get the gutter to run level out of the machine.

Back your rear truck tires up onto a pair of 4x6 or 6x6 blocks.

Gets a whole new angle at the rear of trailer.

Yes a ditch is your next best answer..:cheers:

Or back the rear of the truck up on work ramps. I have a tilt bed trailer. That is the easiest way. My Corvettes wont load on any other type of trailer. They truly have no ground clearance.

Many have change the fixed side link on the left side of the tractor to an adjustable one-they just ordered a replacement right side and installed it on the left, that gained them up to 4" of lifting height.

Found the answer to my question in another post.

Thanks

You could also shorten the adjustable top link to give you more ground clearance on the box blade.

That sounds like a good idea for more than one reason. Appreciate it.

Twin adjustable links -- DUALS!, and a "shallow" ditch......:greentractorride:

Yeah, those extenders are really nice, but I ain’t driving to Wisconsin for ramps.
You missed the part about my billfold. :laugh:

Maybe someone else makes something similar that will ship them.

But, I’m pretty much leaning towards my pile of 2 x 8’s and tweaking my 3 point.
