Trailers / cub haulers

Postby Dave F. » Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:02 pm

I currently have a 14 ft. car hauler that does a good job hauling one tractor(7000lb dual axle). I am looking for something to haul two tractor on. (probably haul nothing larger than a 8n Ford or Case 430 tractor, most of the time I'll be hauling cubs) I've ruled out 16 ft.trailers , I am thinking on the lines of an 18ft. or 20 footer, but my drive way is a little steep & I was wondering if the rear of the trailer would drag? I thought I would ask the cubaholics what they use or recommed for hauling multiable cubs. Thanks Dave F.

I have a 16 ft dual axle that hauls 2 cubs no problem rated 7000 gvw, not much room left if you want to have implements hanging out the back of the tractor

Can't answer that without seeing how steep the drive is and how far back the wheels are set on the trailer.

I have an 18' trailer and it handles two Cubs and a couple implements placed just right pretty good.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

An 18' trailer works quite well for hauling 2 Cubs. My trailer is an 18' that a previous owner added a 2 1/2' beaver tail to the back of. I can haul 2 Cubs, plus my golf cart across the front. My biggest gripe with my trailer has been not enough tie down locations, which I'm in the process of resolving today, I'm adding 10 more!
