Need to Rent or Borrow a Trailer to Haul Ford 8N

Post by Tim Hollister » Thu Jan 02, 2020 7:30 pm

Help!!

I used to race with y'all at WHRRI but unfortunately haven't been out in a long, long time. Still, I cherish the times I was able to be a part of the family.

Anyway, I'm heading out tomorrow to look at and potentially purchase a Ford 8N tractor with a front end loader and a rear box blade. If I decide to purchase the tractor, I'll need a trailer to haul it from the Milan, Michigan area back to Waterford. I tow with a 2002 Ford F-350 w/7.3L Diesel (12,500 pounds tow weight limit).

I'm estimating the tractor with attachments to be in the neighborhood of 4,000 pounds. The current owner of the tractor estimates the overall length of tractor with attachments at 17 feet.

Anybody out there got anything that can help me get this new toy home?

Thanks in advance,

It sounds like you found good prospect on a trailer rental, so hopefully the 8N meets your expectations!
