 Used Trailers

I have just purchased a Kubota B2910 with a backhoe. Can someone give me some advice on what type of trailer to buy to haul this? The Dealer I purchsed this from in New York would sell me a new trailer for $2,400.00. I would only be hauling this 3-5 times a year and cannot justify spending $2,400.00 on a new one. Any ideas on where I can get a used one. I live in Southern Vermont but am willing to travel a bit for the right price..
Thanks for your help. I have learned a lot from you guys. I check out this site every week.

The minimum you need is a 16 ft equipment trailer with a 7000 lb. max rating.
I have a bumper pull which I spent $900 for. You can normally get a similar new trailer with electric brakes and new tires (very important) for ~ $1500.
There are a number of large trailer outlets in my extended area Bowling Green KY (Trailer world) and Ozark AL. Below is a post for York NY. There should be something like this closer.

I use a wood deck vehicle trailer for my tractor and other things. Mine has a 2" lip and stake pockets. $2400 sounds high. My tractor is a bit larger, and I got a 10K tandem with electric brakes and spare tire and lifetime registration for $2400.

I don't live in your area, but you can find a trailer like you describe for that price in the local classified ads every weekend here. That is the first place that I would check.

I wish I could be so lucky around here!! Nothing in any of the local papers and new ones run $2,000.00-$2,500.00.

The best deal I have found is in Atlanta Georgia for a new one at $1,350.00.

I would think there would be something in New York. Not much luck locating anything.

Too bad you don't live close to Texas. There's a place in Manchester that builds trailers. He gets $625 for a 16' 7000 LB tandem axle equipment trailer. It doesn't have brakes and has used tires.

I live in souther VT also. I just purchased a 12' trailer at Harvest Equipment in Newport VT and paid more. There is a place in Montpelier that claims to have cheap prices. I went there and so the trailer, but couldn't find an employee. It is called Walt's. www.ackequip.com/

I-89 to exit 8, East on Rt 2.
1 mile past the Ford Garage on the left..
Rt. 2 East Berlin, Vermont.
(802) 223-0021

Maybe you will have better luck.

Heather -

Having several oranges about the same size as your 2910, I too trailer. I have a box frame car trailer, with 2x10 wood deck, that measures 16' long. Having the backhoe on the orange, I have about 8" of open end space left when all is lowered to deck,FEL and Backhoe. If I were you, I would bump up to an 18' trailer. Two feet will not make a big difference in price at all, however the weight displacement with a full load will be better presented.

There are actually many good used trailers available. Check out the bargain news papers, such as "BARGAIN NEWS.com", or "TRUCK and EQUIPMENT TRADER.com, or MACHINERY TRADER.com for starters.

FYI, there is a used 16' beaver tail open deck with side boxes available near by...if you would like, I can get the info for you.
Otherwise, for a new trailer, I have purchased a tandem dumper from "Upper Ten Trailer Sales" in Hinesburg VT. Very accomodating, and easy to find off 89.

Willie H.
