My 960 is right at 72" wide with the rear wheels set out about 1 3/4" on each side. I haul on a trailer that is about 78" with no problem.

Hope that helps!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

My problem is that all the rentals around here max out at 6' = 72":

http://www.uhaul.com/Reservations/EquipmentDetail.aspx?model=HO

http://www.sunbeltrentals.com/equipment/category.aspx?id=28

But even at 78" wide, that would only give you 3" clearance on either side:

3" + 72" + 3" = 78"

We're talking some "Dale Earnhardt Tractor Ballerina" action right there - backing up a 3500 lb rig for 12 feet with only 3" to spare.

Yeah, it's starting to dawn on me that I'd better budget for the Craigslist price PLUS another $250 or more in "Jerr Dan" contractor's fees:

Ugh.

3 inches on either side of the tires is a whopping LOT. Really.
I haul tractors all the time - to and from my land/home and I've bought and sold a few. 1/2" on either side is all you need.
Put it in low and idle the tractor onto the trailer. EZ.
You say you are upgrading. What do you have now?
You also mention a tractor in the 40, 50, 60 HP range. You could easily get any of the Hundreds, early Thousands or a 3000 onto a 6' trailer. But a 50, 60 hp tractor would be the size of a 3 cyl 4000 or a 5000. Both would be too wide for a 6' trailer.
Lastly, many sellers are willing to deliver a tractor for reasonable fee. Like even just fuel costs.
You might put that into the deal when you buy the tractor.

Look at the hauling schedule on this site. Narrow it down by state and "can haul".

Or buy it and advertise a "need hauled". I got a lot of responses for my tractor and got a guy to haul it ~175 miles for $275.
