I was wondering what this thing weighs?

I'm picking it up Saturday and not sure if I would be able to "man handle" it onto a trailer or if I need to figure another way to load it. It's a nine shank and I was hoping I could lift one end and walk it onto a trailer.
Just not sure of how heavy it is.

Sounds like it's got some weight to it and I've got some figuring to do. Thanks fellas!

Ferguson Quack digger. have one just like it and you can move it by hand but it is on the heavy side best is to tip over backwards so the points don't dig in

I loaded one of those in a 64 Chevy pickup by myself when I just got married at 21. Back was out for 2 weeks after that.

Bring an 8ft 2"x4" with you and a couple of blocks of 6"x6". It's amazing what a bit of leverage can do.

I'm gonna assume you have a trailer big enuf fer yer tractor. First, check that no other implement is hooked up to the tractor. Put the ramps down on the trailer, start the tractor and carefully load it onto the trailer. Remember to put the ramps up. Then, following the rules of the road and local constabulary quirks, carefully drive to the general vicinity of the chisel plow. After unloading the tractor, hitch it to the cultivator and place your hydraulic control into the "raise" position. The implement should lift clear of the ground at this point. Then, carefully reload the tractor and implement back onto the trailer. Remember to raise the trailer ramps. Drive in a reverse direction from the first journey to the origination point, and unload the trailer. See how easy that was? And such a backsaver!!! You probably voted for BO.....

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Thats a rough post :roll:, anyhow the tractor idea is a great idea but if you really really cant do that, I would say 3 guys could move it around, but i would agree with the roll it along idea.

I have a old 3 point field cultivator just like that sitting in the weeds, have used it a few time on small seeding jobs. Better take somebody else with you, it will be pretty hard to man handle that thing yourself to get it on a trailer. Maybe with 2 people you could get one end up on the trailer but remember that it"s going to snag on everything.

i'd bring a come a long and a couple 4x8 sheets of plywood to slide it on. that critter will snag on every little piece of the trailer trying to load it.

Just how big a man are you? I'd guess you could "walk" it up on your trailer if your ramps and height of trailer is compatible. Maybe even "roll" it up if you can get the third member to clear while you roll it. Don't over look a come along and slide it on. Lot of ways to skin a cat!

Its a 2 row massey ferguson cultivator. I have one just like it. I let a buddy borrow it once to work up a deer plot and used it like a chisel plow kinda. It didn't work very well for that. We loaded it on a trailer together just fine. Another buddy wanted it to cultivate some sweet corn and I loaded it myself on a trailer to take to him so its doable but awkward.

What's a quack digger. Mine was set up for 30" corn rows when I bought it. I've cultivated a lot of corn with it and a lot of people have borrowed it to cultivate their corn. I have seen people space the tines evenly and use it as a field cultivator too.

Scratch that, I happened to just walk past mine and the tag says ferguson, not massey ferguson. Also your tines are set up at different spacings so maybe they could be used as cultivators and some sort of a plow but I'm not sure of that

I used to have one of those- might be hard to lift even one end, but if its a fairly low trailer, I'll bet your could lever one end on with a pry bar of some kind, then pull it with a come-along.
