Fred,

If you're here to accept the accolades, NICE JOB! I'm sure you will enjoy it. Is that a Pennington mower? I have one in pieces that I intend to restore.

The tractor and scenery both look pretty good. But I would like to see heavier tie down straps when it is loaded on the trailer.

Trailer

Postby pup » Mon Mar 08, 2004 10:38 pm

Fred how good does the single axle trailer tow the cub. I am thinking about building a smaller trailer. We use a 18' to tow two tractors. I would like a smaller trailer when I am going alone to a show. But can't make my mind up on two axles or one. Does the single axle sway at high speed. Our 18' you can't tell it is there with two tractors as for as sway goes. Pup

I have a single axle with a 5x12 bed that I tow my cub behind a Ranger. For short trips it is good, but for long trips you get a little front to back rock that gets tiring after a few hours. I have borrowed a friends 2 axle car hauler a time or two when I needed more room, and it pulls like a dream. I would reccomend 2 axles if you plan to haul very far. I am giving serious thoughts to selling mine and buying the car hauler. It's a case of overkill, but it sure pulls nice. I also suggest you make it a little longer than your cub, so You can position it for better balance.

Pup,

The primary reason for multiple axles on a trailer is to increase weight capacity. Multiple axle trailers pull nice because there's more tires holding the load, inline tires like to go in straight lines, and the frame doesn't flex as much. A trailer loaded to capacity will not tow as well as a bigger trailer with the same load.

Aside from mechanical problems with the trailer or hitch, trailers sway when the front of the trailer is too light. Figure on 12-15% of the total trailer weight at the receiver so a trailer weighting 5000 lb loaded needs 600-750 lbs on the hitch.

This is my experience with trailers and I hope it helps with your decision.

The tandem axles do ride MUCH better, so I only use them. It's reassuring to know that in the event of a tire failure, it can be removed and the axle tied up (or the other blocked up) and away you go.

It's also an advantage to have one trailer axle not skidding in a panic stop. That helps the trailer stay back there where it belongs. My one trailer has brakes on only one axle and the other has mis-matched brakes, so only one can skid.

Jim mentioned better straps. There are new laws as of Jan. 1 on tie downs on trailers.
If you have a tractor or car or something on wheels you MUST tie down to 4 corners. The chain or tie down must be strong enough to hold half of the weight of the object tied down. Cub tractor w/ weights fluid etc....
2000 lbs......Chain must be rated at 1000 lbs. That is for each chain not a combination of chains. You must have rated chains or straps.
If you don't think I am serious just try driving to Red Power in Iowa this summer. Iowa needs money and they think the best way is busting poor tractor guys. In Iowa any truck rated at 6,001 lbs must scale.
I know some guys think this is over kill on chaining down but I think it is for the best, tooo many things coming off trailers.
With too light of straps if you were to swerve to miss a deer the Cub would be in the ditch.

30 + tractors including 2 French Super Cubs, French Cubs, 1963 Industrial Cub, 1955 Cub Highcrop etc...German and French built IH tractors and some bigger IH tractors. Of course I have about 20 IH trucks and an IH refridge in the Shop.

Yikes, I have some good chains but only 1 is actually rated.

6,001 would include virtually every 1/2 ton and over truck. Do they really want the scales clogged up with all the pickups being used as passenger cars?

Mike was that a Federal requirement or a State :?:

do you have a copy of it, or a URL? I'd like to pass it on to our local club here, and make sure that I'm in compliance.

sounds like 4 SEPARATE chains are required, not the typical V pattern front and rear.
