ive hauled with both a lowdeck [between the wheels] and deckover [ over the wheels,] both are good and have their strong points but i dont know about a deckover setup that will bumper pull, most are goosenecks, the first thing you need to know is how long is your tractor with the longest impliment you might take to the show? [ or to a job] add at least 4 to 5 feet for a beavertail ramp on the trailer, althoug you can set the impliment on the beavertail its better if you can get it fully on the deck of the trailer for a trike style tractor you will either need a third ramp or a full width ramp which will need a spring assist a trile tractor can be loaded with 2 ramps and you'll see old men do it , but its dangerous as all get out, and keep in mind that 70 year old that just did it has probably been driving that tractor since he was 7 he can probably park it on your porch too if he wanted too my favorite for my outfit is a 18 foot car hauler with a 4 foot beavertail , loading a tractor on it is plum easy i can load my tractor and a 5 foot brush hog attached and another small impliment crossways on the front of the trailer and still be fully on the trailer [ the hogs tail wheel is just on the rear of the trailer] this is a bumper pull trailer but my tow vehicle is a one ton dually with a 12 foot flatbed, and weighs 8800 lbs empty ,your bronco is marginal, but will do it, you will definatly want to step up to a equalizer hitch setup with sway control for that , they may cost some money but its insurance on your bronco, your tractor and trailer and your life,your piece of mind will thank you every mile, your going to wake up that 302 too it will have all it can handle, especially if you get in rolling hill country

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

How is loading an NFE tractor on two ramps dangerous as all get out. All it is, is driving the tractor around a slight curve while going up hill. If you drive a tractor once in awhile it is something that you need to do.

if someone is not experienced in doing that, it can be dangerous if there not l;ined up right and dont get the front wheels on the trailer before they turn or miss the ramp with one hind wheel i have loaded a couple myself and can see where it can go bad real easy
