 moving with my tractor

I am looking for advice. In about a month my wife and I are moving from Iowa City, Iowa to Akron, Ohio, a 560 mile move. Originally I thought I might sell my Case IH DX33, which I had just bought, thinking it would be too much trouble to move. I have since come to my senses and am wondering what the best way to move the tractor might be. I have a loader, finish mower, and rear blade also. Thanks in advance for the help!

 moving with my tractor


I shipped a tractor 1000 miles for very little cost by having it taken to an independent trucking firm and asking that it go as "open freight" whenever space permitted. It arrived nestled under the belly of an earthmover and was driven off under its own power. It does require that you don't have any time constraints (took a few weeks before space was available). Another thing required is that you have a loading dock available 24 hours/day where it is to be delivered. I've also shipped machine tools this way. You are at the mercy of the truckers if you do this, but they are real professional about it and I'd do it again.
Another thought is to take it all down to the local tractor dealer. He must ship all the time and would know the right way to do it.
There are also some guys who go to lots of tractor shows with their antique tractors and advertise on some of the antique tractor websites when they have space available.

If you are being professionally moved, you can ask the moving company to load up your tractor also. When I moved from New Mexico to Virginia, I had them move my '72 Bronco and only had to pay drayage. Just ask, all they can say is no. Terry

I don't know how large the Case is. If you are moving yourself and are renting a moving van, consider renting an implement trailer also and pull it behind. I can get my JD 950 with loader and 6' rotary cutter on a 16' trailer (although the cutter does hang over the back a litte). I can also put my box blade at the front of the trailer and set the bucket down on it.

 moving with my tractor

I moved from KY to Al about two years ago. I purchased a heavy equipment trailer ($900) and towed the equipment down. It took 2 trips but the tractors and farm equipment were not included in the paid move. I have used the trailer a lot since, so I consider it a good purchase.
I had a Ford F150 with a trailer tow package, it handled the tractor, FEL and 4ft rotory mower fine.

Interesting to hear Peter's tows worked OK with a F150. Maybe I made a mistake, but I went the other way and bought a single axle 5x8' utility trailer for my F150. I figure my tractor/loader, ballast, fuel etc. Would run around 4,000 lbs. I figured my F150 (without towing package) wasn't quite up to the job. There are some pretty good grades around here. When I bought the trailer, a 16' tandem axle trailer with electric brakes on both axles was sitting next to mine, and it wasn't that much more. I might have made a small mistake, but then the utility trailer is useful in many situations where a larger trailer would be awkward. I don't have to worry about burning up the transmission or brakes on the 150 either.

Recently hauled my Ford 1520 with 5' Woods finish mower and loader a short distance on a borrowed 16' tandem axle trailer. Used a 1/2 ton Dodge pickup with 360 engine. Power wasn't a problem, even on steep grades but after that trip I decided that I wouldn't do it again without an electric brake controller. I figure loaded equipment weighed 3500-4000lbs. and stopping certainly required advanced planning! With brake controller I would anticipate no problems. Just my humble opinion... Best of Luck with your move. Fred
