If you think you need a 6'x12' go bigger!

 

I am looking at Gator made and PJ trailers. 

 

1500 will get you a new 6x12.  I think that's the route I'm going.

 

:ditto:

 

I bought a PJ 83" x 14' single axle, and now wish I would have gone for the heavier duty 2 axle.

 

I highly recommend the PJ trailers.

 

I really like the construction, and the hitch that they use is especially good.

I am looking at Big Tex trailer 20ft tandem landscape type. I have a small tractor with a bucket, with the rotary mower attached it's to long for my 16ft trailer. I am getting too old to take the rotary mower off every time and slide it sideways- then drive the tractor back on with the bucket sitting on top of the mower. The big Tex I looked at looked sturdy and I can order one with a dove tail which I really want. I have debated between the 18 and 20 ft for a while- going to confirm that my tractor and mower attached will fit on the 20ft, if it does, I will get the 20ft.

I have a 24 ft tandem axle trailer.  I almost got a smaller one, but glad I picked up this one.  It does look funny with my 2370/FIL/tiller loaded on it, it's overkill but I occasionally use it to haul antique farm tractors so this size works great.  I kinda wish I had got it as a goose-neck though instead of bumper pull.

My 83" x 16' Woodworth (local company) will handle 4-6 tractors, depending on size & attachments.  I have since had the builder add a 2' dovetail.  HPIM1705.JPG   HPIM1720.JPG

 

The 80" x 10' Woodworth will handle 2-3 tractors:  HPIM1133.JPG

Nice rig, I bought that exact trailer, it was stolen in 2012. I used the insurance money, what there was after deductible and depreciation, to buy my current rig. BTW, you'll like the side ramp!

Have you pulled it with the side gate up? I always wondered if those would cause a weird sway.

I've looked at those some.

Side Gate up makes no difference, I always left it up on mine. Mine had a split rear gate, otherwise just like yours.

I wonder why they didn't make mine a split gate? But I'll know how it works this weekend since I'm using my 300jd to.help the next purchase on the trailer.

That's good to know. I figured that high weight on one side would make it feel funny. I know it's expanded steel on it but figured wind would push it around. Seems like a good deal! Always thought the side gate would be handy.

Ride the dirt bike up the back gate then unload down off the side gate.
