    I have a L3000 Kubota with a 60" front bucket and a frame mount woods backhoe attachment. I need to get a trailer for it. I do not have a dedicated tow vehicle so I want to get the trailer as small and light as possible. What size trailer do you all think I can get away with? Thanks!

    I have a L2800 and if it is the same frame size then the absolute smallest trailer I would use is a 16'. I have a 16' tandem axle 7000lb and I have to curl the bucket down and rest it on the ft. bar of trailer to keep the backhoe from hanging off the rear. I might be upsizing to a 20' trailer in the future if I have to trailer my tractor too much.
    So I would recommend a 20ft trailer if you can swing it.
