Hi everyone, I'm purchasing a JD 4200 from my father. The tractor is in Michigan and I'm driving from NC to get it. I'm trying to figure out what size equipment trailer I should buy. My dad is not around to give me measurements. I've found the specs for the 4200, but this one has a 420 bucket loader and I think a 5' brush hog. Can anyone give me an idea how long the tractor is with this configuration? Also curious how much weight the bucket/loader and brush hog adds. I'm thinking a 5000 lbs payload trailer should be more than adequate.

Thank you.

Karson,

Based on other similar threads here, the consensus is that a 16’ or better yet, an 18’ tandem axle equipment trailer with a 7,000# weight rating and ramps, not a tailgate is what you should be looking at. Anything less than 16’ makes it difficult to balance the weight of the tractor and tongue weight.

With a 5" hog you will need every bit of a 20' trailer, 7k minimum...10k would be better IMHO.


What are you towing with?

My opinion a 20foot for sure. My 2305 with loader and box blade has zero room to adjust for proper balance on a 16foot car hauler. I have to have the box blade basically touching end of trailer to get it right.

Wait a sec ! This is similar to another trailer thread running right now, and we made that OP buy a bigger truck to replace his F150 and get a commercial driver's license.

I'm thinking we need to upgrade this one to a KC130.
