Just bought a case 530 loader/backhoe and need to haul it home. The guy I bought it from says it only weighs around 5 to 6000lbs. I have been reading on some of these pages that it is around 8000 to 9000. I have a 18 ft trailer that is rated at 7000lbs. Hauling it about 35mi. Could somebody tell me the true weight of this machine. And any thing else I might need to know about it. I paid $3000 for it and it runs great. Has a few small leaks at valves to levers for backhoe and needs a bearing for front spindle on the side where the steering cyl"s is located. Also got a number off of the left side of tractor on dash. Number is 6169163 and 540h. Thought this might be a serial number but does not match any numbers listed for this tractor on the ytmag serial numbers. Thanks for any info.

Back in the seventies, I did own a 530 with a hoe. I cannot tell you the exact weight of the combo but I can tell you this. I needed a tag-along float to carry it and I had just bought a brand new 4 ton tandem from a local trailer manufacturer to carry the little Ford loader I had been using. When I told the trailer guy of my new acquisition, he said that the 4 ton unit was way too light for the 530 and that I had to move up to his 6 ton tandem. And he was dead right because other loader/backhoe owners with the same size machines were all using 6 ton floats. Today, a new 580 needs a 9 ton tri-axle float due to increased weight. Even a 6 ton won't cut it for the newer TLB's out there.

Your 7000 lb trailer is lighter still so I wouldn't suggest even trying to load the 530 on it. Rent or borrow a six ton float and bring your 530 home safely. It may only be 35 miles but stuff happens even during short trips.

Thanks for your reply. Since I posted I did some searchs on the internet and this web site and it seems that the tlb weighs around 9000. Like you said way to much for my 7000lb trailer. I had talked a buddy of mine at work in to hauling it for me on his 14000lb gooseneck trailer. He is just asking me to pay for the fuel for his truck to bring it to me. Prob. around $100 round trip. I think I will be on the safe side and let him do it for me. Again thanks for the reply.
