Does anyone know if a car hauler trailer with a 2" ball hitch and 2 3500# axles will haul a 560 Farmall and 5'Bushog safely over a great distance? The bushog is light but not sure how much it weighs.

I hauled my 560 (with a loader and fluid in the tires) 500 miles last WINTER on my gooseneck. It has three axles rated for #18,000 less the trailer weight and I have a 1 ton dually pickup. I was still very cautious. I would bever haul something of this weight on a bumper hitch trailer, even with a heavy pickup. Be careful!

You need a heavier trailer than that for the 560. The wheels will not even fit on the car hauler unless they are turned in it will be too wide. You have to have an over the wheels trailer to haul that tractor with the rear wheels turned out.

Does not sound like a goog idea. Most of those car trailers are not made good enogh. Excpecally the tongue. Make sure that you allways have trailer brakes and a good truck in front.

How far are you hauling? This is only my own opinion but it sounds as though you need a bigger trailer. The MOST important thing is to be safe. I would not recommend it. The macho thing would be to throw it on the trailer and go. The smart owner does it right or hires it out.

Also better have at least a 3/4 pickup in front of it, and trailer brakes.

It's iffy, that tractor is about 6000#, definitely NOT if you have fluid in those tires! Gadget

thanks for all the help! I'm a bit cautious about the idea myself. The trailer however is one of the best I've seen. It does have trailer brakes and the tongue is VERY heavy. It is also the widest trailer allowable for road use. I wouldn't even consider it except that it is one of the heaviest looking car haulers I've seen. Just wanted to get some opinions on the matter. Thanks again!
