This was the return trip. I had the tractor farther forward on the first trip with bucket over the trailer tongue. I think I had too much tongue weight that way, springs on my vehicle were pretty much maxed out. I need a bigger tow vehicle and bigger trailer. :laugh:
I haven't tried loading backwards. I'm not sure the 3 point has enough lift to keep the implement (especially the brush hog) clear of the ramps before the tires would reach the ramps. I have been planning on getting some longer ramps, but haven't done that yet either.
I don't trailer the tractor too much, and this was the first time with the brush hog.
No shop or trailer is ever big enough. My 20' fills up fast sometimes. Be careful about weight distribution, I once pulled a weapons trailer out of Norfolk with another flatbed on top of it, at 55 MPH everything was fine. At 56 MPH the tandems on the tractor raised up, making it impossible to really steer. Nearly rolled it in the hammer lane of I-95. Weapons trailers have the axles too far forward for that particular job. I whipped the wheel left then right then left again, just to stay straight. Grabbed another gear and come on home, albeit under 56 MPH! A lil tongue weight is good.
