 Trailering B3030

Iíve attached a picture of a tandem trailer that Iím interested in purchasing at Kaufman Trailers. However, it seemed like a good idea to check with the good folks on tractorpoint.com before making the purchase. The trailer will primarily be used to transport a couple of ATVís to and from my hunting property which is about 100 miles each way. However, about Ĺ dozen times a year Iíll need the trailer to transport my B3030 with an implement (bush hog or harrow) to the property and to be serviced. Iím trying to keep the overall trailer weight down yet still have enough trailer to safely get the job done. Trailer specs: GVWR=7,000 lb., Axles=2 3,500 lb axles w/1 braking axle, Deck Length 16 ft. flat, Suspension: 1,750 lb. double eye springs, Floor=2 in. treated wood. The trailer comes standard with a 4 ft. expanded metal tailgate w/spring assist that is supposed to handle a 3,000 lb. piece of equipment. The tailgate would be very convenient but I could get this trailer with swing-up ramps instead. Your opinions are welcome.

Very Similar to what I use to transport my 7800. I would tell you that if you have a loader and a brush hog, 16 ft may not get it done. My trailer is 14 ft and it isn't enough. I reinforced the swing down gate before I even tried to load the tractor. Didn't like the way it looked. I also use jack stands under the rear of the trailer when I load the tractor to reduce the lift on the truck and hitch. Just leave yourself enough room for the spring compression.

Trailer handles the tractor pretty well. These aren't really equipment haulers, but as long as the brakes are good and the gate is reinforced, you should like the way it works for shorter hauls.

You can't go wrong with getting brakes on both axles.

As Beagle has suggested, run a tape over the tractor and the brush hog..... you don't really want it hanging off the back end.

My 4115 with the backhoe in place takes up every inch of a 16 foot trailer. Your brush hog and your tractor have got to be longer than what I have.

Good advice up above here, especially about the length.

I don't know what you use as a tow vehicle, but if your trailer doesn't have a little extra space on the deck then balancing the load to achieve optimum tongue weight will be impossible. This may make your 100 mile trips a little less than enjoyable.

In my case the trailer is only about 3" longer than what I need to carry (see my picture 20), but a) my tow vehicle barely budges despite big loads, and b) the deck on my trailer is 18' long and with that I'm already 45' long bumper to bumper and every foot makes manuevering around that much more difficult.

Again, depending on your tow vehicle, you may be really glad of brakes on both axles one day.

Trailers are like boats, next year you will always wish you had bought one justa few feet bigger.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the good advice! I can definitely see how the extra length will help me balance the load. I'm now looking at the 18 ft version with brakes on both axles.
