I pulled a 20x8 5100 IH drill nearly 150 miles home with no problems..It was over 14 ft wide..To start with some of it was on some pretty narrow roads..Then we hit hiway 13,then I-44,and finally 71...I ran 55 mph with absolutely no problems...It didnt bounce,sway,or anything..It had real good tires plus I had a spare with me...Most of the trip was on 4 lane roads where I could run on the shoulder.That made it much easier..

On I-44 came up on a Hipo writing someone a ticket..While I was stopped waiting for traffic to clear he came back to me...He just wanted to see if I had an escort running behind me which I did with a strobe light...He said have a safe trip..

The other alternative is to put your trailer in the ditch and back it on the trailer....9 ft wide is no problem if you hang it off the right side,dont cross a scale, and stay off major roads..

I pulled a 24 ft IH 4500 field culivator home 70 miles with no problems..It was 16 ft wide..Again I had an escort behind me..He once had to cut off an old lady that was going to pass me just as we were coming up to a narrow bridge..

Wow, on I-44.... I guess you were going above the minimum
Thanks for the input.
