I need to know the weight of the Deere 210 FEL. My manual says the bucket (empty) weighs 153 lbs. But I can not find the weight of the arms - or the full unit with bucket. Anyone know the weight of this implement?

I'm trying to decide on a trailer and want to be sure I've calculated the total weight correctly. I'm looking at 5 x 14 ft Load & Trail trailer unit with a carrying capacity of 2900 lbs and a 3500 lbs single axle.

My 410 loader is slightly larger than your 210 and uses the same buckets I think.

The 410 weighs 783 pounds with a 53 inch bucket, the hood guard and all the mounting brackets.

Hope that helps.

I was guessing the 210 might be 700 lbs - so I was close. Thanks for the info!

If you have the means to move to a Tandum axle, make every effort to do so! Tandum axles are a must once a certain size and weight are reached to assure a stable, safe tow. I witnessed a single axle trailer flip over with coming down a hill. It wobbled, then rolled with the truck going along for the ride. The trailer had a JD 950 on board, no attachments, and was under weight for the trailer capacity. Everyone ended up okay, except for the trailer, tractor, and truck.

Many new trailers have the brakes already in place and will assist in your stablity. Good luck!

Troy

Thanks for the advice, Troy. I've looked at tandems but they seem a bit big for my needs. The single axle Load & Trail is rated for a load of 2950 lbs which should be OK for my estimate of my 2210 with loader and tiller attached. I'll only be using it for local transit - no long haul trips. I am thinking that the 59" width is too narrow (50" wide bucket)and I might get the 77" version.

As for length, I'd prefer a 12ft model instead of the 14ft version as I can get another trailer manufacturer option then (Karavan). BUT, the tractor, FEL, and tiller are going to be 13-14ft. Does it make any sense to simply put the tiller or box blade in the bucket for the few times I'll transit the unit? Or is that foolish thinking? What do others use to haul their 2210's or 4115's?

I'm a rookie at this stuff but have trailered 25ft boats with a tandem.

Now that I hear more details, I have to say that you might be headed for trouble.

There must be a couple feet of extra room on the trailer to "spot" the tractor. If you are locked into one or two positions you may very well have too much tongue weight, or worse (and real dangerous) too little tongue weight.

Single axle trailers are even less forgiving than duals because of the very narrow center of gravity. I have seen tail-heavy trailers "wag the dog" with fatal results.

I would strongly urge you to put your 14 foot load on a 16 foot dual axle trailer.

I hadn't thought about the change in the load distribution if I put weight into the bucket. Thanks for raising that issue. I'm sure that would be a concern.

I'm just trying to "NOT" to wind up with a big trailer in the backyard that will be hard to use for other purposes.

But, everytime I get into this discussion I seem to be right on the edge of the limits of a single axle tralier. The "right" answer seems to be to move up to a tandem axle.

Maybe I should rent something for a bit to see what works and what doesn't.

Thanks for the advice.

Just remember you can usually use too big of a trailer for a small job, but you can NEVER us too small of a trailer for a big job. Error on the size of slightly too big when buying a trailer. You'll never be sorry. Also, when hauling a CUT, tandem is the only way to go. I personally prefer a car hauler.

I may be a little late in posting but if you look at my pics #3 you will see my 2210 on a homemade 2 axle 5x12 trailer. This doesn't show the tiller but I can fit the 2210 loader and tiller on this trailer but the bucket needs to hang over the front a little for tongue weight. Actually the width is 62" between the fenders and I have a 54" mmm so everything works out but just. If it had been a 6 X 12 then I could have gotten the 62" mmm.
I am glad it is a 2 axle though and it has electric brakes on one axle. With the tractor on it my Durango knows it's back there!

DJLX - Your photos helperd me to see the size of the unit on a trailer. It's really big! I'm seeing now why folks are saying to get a Tandem Axle. Somehow the 2210 doesn't look that big in my driveway.

When I measure my unit it is just short of 14 feet from FEL to Box Blade. Does your tiller hang over the back of your 12 foot trailer?
