I'm scared of tilts. Can you load a tractor and bush hog on one?

[QUOTE=whiffyspark;4900262 I'm not interested in anything over 14, due to CDL[/QUOTE]

Wouldn't you be limited to 10k then?

I stand corrected. I'm so used to people saying over 10k needs Cdl. As long as I'm under 26 combined I'm OK right?

I'll always go bumper pull for the simple fact that you can pull it with anything. No one runs goose necks on Long Island unless it's a big camper.

I don't see ant way for you to stay under 26k . 5k for batwing 10k tractor and 7k for a trailer and that's before you add the truck.

But I like bumper pulls. They're simple. I can get a 20ft 14k one for around $4k. Either implement or skid steer style.

Biggest machine I would transport would be a 333d or t770. I use an excavator as well, largest has been a e42. I would like to consider a e50 at some point, but i'm not there yet.
I have both, a 20ft 14k low profile gooseneck to haul the skids. A 18ft 10k bumper pull for mulch, sod and whatever else. I haul a cat 277c with forks, bucket, and power rake on a daily basis. The trailer weighs 4000lbs empty, and a 98 gal transfer tank on the front. I know its probably overweight but it pulls it great. I wouldnt want to pull all that on a bumper pull any day. And I'm driving a 2500hd diesel.

Tractor weighs a little over 4k. I would probably get an mx10, for a 10 foot cutter.

Its just a jd4400. Nothing huge. We had a 15 ft bat wing I sold a couple Years.

I would like to do more Bush hogging
