 Trailering a 2210

I've got a 2210 that I began to haul on a 14 ft tandem trailer. The unit just fits on the trailer with the FEL and BB but there is no room to move it forward or backward. It rides well. But how do I tell if I have too much or too little tongue weight? I pull on forward but maybe I should be backing on? Because I just fit I can't move the unit around - I can only change the loading direction. It looks to be a bit tongue heavy right now. Any suggestions or advice?

That is something that needs to be seen! Is the rear of the truck sagging and if so how much? The trailer is designed for how much weight? What size truck? What type of trailer? Landscape,skid steer,deck over,hydraulic dump or a car? What type of ramps?

If you look at the hanger between the front and rear axel it should be level if you’re centered. The main thing is to make sure neither is bottomed out.

I've got plenty of vehicle - I'm pulling with a full-sized Suburban. THe tralier has plenty of capacity as it has axles for 7000# and my unit only goes 3000#. Even considering the tralier weight I've got plenty of tralier.

Looking at it loaded it looked a bit front heavy. When you load a tractor, most pictures I see are of tractors loaded in a forward direction. Is that the prefered direction? Does a tractor like mine have more of its weight on one axle? Or is the weight evenly distributed front and back (assuming all implements are on the ground of course)?

Next time I load it I'll measure front and back clearance to tell me how close I am "level". I'm wondering if I should have a 16 ft trailer to allow me to adjust the load?

Good idea. Trade up now before the steel prices jump again.

I guess I need a "trailer stretcher"!

When I pulled it the other day for the first time, I was pleased. It tracked well and the brakes worked as they are supposed to. The lower deck of the trailer (drop axles) made loading and unloading a breeze. Although, I think I'll use two small jack stands to prevent the trailer from trying to raise up as I load/unload.

The jack stands are a must.

My 4115 will jerk the rear end of the Tundra off the ground.

DRankin, I bet it does! I hadn't considered that issue/problem when I loaded the unit. Now I better understand why some ramps have that "leg" under them. Makes all the sense in the world to me now. Live and Learn!

Sounds to me that your trailer has the axles placed too far toward the rear with regard to where your load is placed. Do you have the capabilities of repositioning the axles or a local machine shop that could do this? Moving the axles forward 6" to 12" will change the balance getting more to the center of gravity of your load. This will reduce the tongue weight. If your load is too far behind the wheels it will make the tongue light and cause the trailer to sway when going down the highway. (That's bad).
