I'm going to trailer a FE35 Perkins motor with a front loader attached.
Which way should it go on the trailer?
Front first or reverse it on?

Im a fraidy cat and always back on. I am well aware that it almost certainly cannot rear up and flip over, but it sure feels scary driving up 4 foot ramps onto the railer.

Thanks everyone.

I assumed that the weight would have been on the back but now I know I shall drive it on forward.

I always load them on by driving forward onto the trailer. That puts more weight on the truck so it handles better

So I guess your axle is way far forward, eh? I have gotten to the point of measuring bumper height of an unloaded tractor then when loading it, look for an inch to inch and half in bumper drop. No more than 2 inches. This puts enough weight forward and keep the headlights from aiming too high. I sill like loading my large tractors nose out. My 3 cyl, 1.0 liter Kuboda B7500 can get loaded forward. If you can't get the bumper drop you need, turn it around. if your trailer is a true top deck and then you add the height of sitting on top of the tractor, that might be a considerable distance. You can back up blind going uphill or downhill. Fergy, Right? Brakes are how good? OOps. Another factor. Will it stop?

I'm a retired truck with over 1.9 Million mile under my belt. Still carry a class A CDL and have had what was one since the age of 16. I have yet to find a tractor that is not heavier on the front then it is on the back. It is a matter of watching how thing go and how far forward one loads the trailer etc. I also learned early in driving to be sure you can stop so slow and steady many times is the best way to haul a load. I would prefer to take 2 hours to drive a load home then to do so in an hour and maybe have a problem with not being able to stop if and when needed. Still remember an idiot pulling out in front of me when I was driving my 1963 Diamond-T 990 series. I had to lock up the brakes to keep from running him and his VW bug over. He sped up fast and moved to the other lane to boot

It would also depend on trailer height and condition of ramps. First time I loaded a tractor onto a true top deck trailer with 8' diamond plated ramps. I had to find some sand for traction on the ramps. I drove it nose in and got an adventure off loading it. Eventually I got a lower deck trailer and using the same 8' ramps I sometimes back them on for a much easier off load. tying it down depends on the machine and where. From nylon straps rated at 10K to chains and binders.

Most likely forward, if the trailer ramps are short/steep it won't back on anyway. Drive wheels may just spin on the way up going backward.
