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

    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.

    Call JD at Cox trailer sales . Really nice people to deal with . We have bought a few trailers from them and he always has a ton of goose neck and bumper pulls in stock. Its right off of Rt 4

    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
