 Trailer Size

If one was to buy a BX 2200 with a LA211 FEL and a 60" mmm what would be the minimum size, length and width trailer that one would need? And are there any other points (types of trailers)that I should be aware of.

Steve

5 feet wide, single axle, 10 feet long minimum. 6 by 12 is better. No need for double axle or electric brakes for a BX.

I have experience with matching trailers to tractors. The mistake is to buy a trailer that is a match to your current tractor. Do not, repeat, do not trap yourself by buying a trailer that is just big enough for your current tractor.
Some time you will need bigger. Either you trade up in tractor size, or you tackle a moving job that exceeds your trailer's capacity, etc.
Strongly recommend buying a standard car-carrier trailer for your needs. They are in-expensive because they are a standard size and very common. Such a trailer will handle your current tractor and give you up-grading coverage when you buy a bigger tractor (and you will, as we all have done).
good luck...jim

Jim is right on. Get a 16 foot car carrier. Smaller can actually cost you more. Make sure you get brakes on all four wheels so you are legal in all states.

BTW, my Deere 4100 with the rear blade in place is 13 feet long and the BX22 with loader and backhoe is over 14 feet.

16 feet is not too big. You will find lots of uses for the trailer. I have.

I have the same tractor. I use a 8'X12' trailer with utility tires. It gives me room to walk around the tractor checking things out, and small enough for a good fit into my garage. I can get one slightly used, but in very good shape for around $700.00 with a 3500 GVW if you need one.

Well, he asked what the **minimum** size trailer would be for his needs. An 8 x 16 car carrier trailer seems pretty much overkill for a subcompact tractor that is slightly over 3 feet wide and 7 feet long. An 8 X 16 trailer would be double axle with brakes and would cost over 2500 dollars new, a 6 X 12 that I recommend with single axle and no brakes would be about 1000 new. He can put the 1500 into a savings account in my name.

I think the question of brakes or not is best answered by the question of what is used to tow the trailer and also by state transport regs as mentioned.

A couple of days ago I saw a minivan sort of thing on the highway towing a tandem utility trailer with a compact car on it. I thought at the time, I sure hope at least one of those axles has brakes or there aren't any long hills to go down along the rest of the trip. If the van had an automatic and typical gearing, I sure hope there weren't too many long hills to go up either. I also don't imagine that the trip would have lasted very long if Transport was running an inspection station along the way.

Figuring out the max weight that can be towed for a particular vehicle where it's going to be used would be good.

I don't know where you are buying the equipment/car haulers. I purchased mine new for $900. I see them all the time for $1500.
If you are going to carry an implement with you you need the 16ft mimimum. You might not need the heavy trailer like mine but you need the extra length to talk any other implement with you.
