 BX23 length with FEL and BH attached?

I have a single axle "BigTex" trailer (30AA) which is 60" wide and 120" long. The Kubota specs for the BX23 say it is 83" long without the "3-point hitch".

Will the BX23 with FEL and BH fit on my trailer?

Weight should not be a problem as the trailer will carry > 2000 lbs and the BX23 is around 1500 lbs I think.

Thanks again!!

"Will the BX23 with FEL and BH fit on my trailer?"

Nope.

Your total length with the back hoe in place is just a bit over 14 feet and weighs 2500+ pounds.

If you leave the back hoe and any other rear implement off, you MIGHT be able to use the trailer, but getting the tongue weight right is going to be a real problem.

I would strongly recommend you trade up to a 16 foot dual axle trailer with a minimum of 5000 GVW.

Case on point: The 2210 is the same weight and size as your BX.

ferrickside :
You're way off on the weight and length of your BX23.
I measured mine with BH and FEL attached and it's just slightly shy of being 15 feet long; so no you can't fit 180 inches into a 120 inch space.

Mine weighs right around 2500 pounds. so again it's 500 pounds to heave for a 2000 pound rated trailer.

You need a tandem trailer with brakes on all 4 wheels.
One of the first considerations in trailering is can you stop it rather than can you pull it.

What did you plan to tow the trailer with?
A little ole escort or Nissan pick up hain't enough.

The BX23 manufacturer specs state the weight without attachments at just over 1500#. I guess the attachments kick it up a bit!

I'll be hauling it with a 2004 Chevy Tahoe LT.

I have a smaller trailer and wondered (hoped!) it would suffice - apparently not!

I very much appreciate the advice, at least I didn't buy the current trailer with the intention of hauling a tractor on it - looks like I have an excuse to get another toy now... :^)

The BX loader weighs a bit over 400 pounds and the back hoe goes 600 easy.
