Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

I have a jd 210 with a 2210 loader and wondering if I could haul this with a single axle or in a pinch remove loader and place in truck bed and just put the tractor on the trailer. Open to any thoughts?

Depends on the trailer....axle rating and all that. I wouldn't try it with one of those Home Depot cheapos with 8" wheels, that's for sure.

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

I have rented uhauls for moving garden tractors with loaders...cost depends on how you rent them....if you are going to drop off the trailer in a a different location from the pick up...you pay...from a pick up location back to that pick up location is reasonably cheap...less than 25 bucks for overnight...comes with a gate that also serves as a ramp...it is single axle and made very well...you can go on the uhaul site and find out what your vehicle can handle weight wise...but your hitch has to be rated for the weight also

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

Yeah, depends entirely on the trailer and your truck.

-trailer should be rated for carrying the weight of the scut (note, the trailer also has mass, so the combined weight of the trailer and the scut should be less than the trailer weight rating)
-when the scut is on the trailer, you want the tongue weight to be about 10-15% of the overall trailer weight. A smaller trailer can make it difficult to position the scut so it's balanced reasonably.

Then the truck and trailer may need support for trailer brakes if the overall weight of the trailer w scut exceeds some about (generally somewhere in the 2000-3500lb range).

Definitely sounds a lot more economical to rent a uhaul trailer. My truck is a full size but no trailer brake system on truck. Also what kind of loading ramps do they have with these u haul trailers.

Also it is pretty hilly in my neck of the woods. Would it be wise of me to install a trailer brake system on my truck

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

U-Haul trailers usually have surge brakes. Check to be sure.

The JD2210 SCUT w/ loader weighs about 2000 lb. With the trailer weight, that's a 3500 lb rated single axle as a minimum.

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

All I can tell you is that my 1025R with loader and mower deck on was hauled home from the dealer when I bought it on a 14' single axle trailer, 3500 lb. axle, and never had a single bit of trouble.

Also hauled a 640 Ford on it once because we had to move it and that's all that was available at the time. Had no problems with it either but we were kissing the limits of the trailer with that one.

Biggest thing is how far do you have to haul it and how often.




Social media is a cesspool of questionable human behavior.

Even duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound!

The biggest lie I tell myself is "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."

Logic is most useful. If only more humans would learn it and embrace it.

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

Lots of single axle trailers use a 3500 lb axle. You just have to check on what the ramp is rated for.

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

We hauled a JD 790 with loader on a single axle TSC trailer behind my '78 Power Wagon. Tractor was estimated to 2500lbs, trailer was rated for 2300 and did just fine. It's seen over 3000 once or twice and hasn't even flinched. Pretty sure the axle's rated for over 3000 being that it's a 5 lug. My 4 lug is rated for 2000.

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

there is lots of variability in single axles.... from 1200lb rating.... all the way to 5000lb.

My trailer has a single axle 5000lb rating... trailer is 800lbs (aluminum), so payload rating is 4200lbs.

I regularly move my 2305 TLB with loaded wheels (3000lbs +) with zero issues...... of course I have brakes (electric), which makes the setup really cool and easy to use!

If you are not sure - rent a trailer for $50

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

I believe the 210 is just a GT. Thinking it could weigh 1k lbs. Loader maybe another 500. Shouldn't take too much of a trailer for this. I might be missing something though.

2210 with a 210 loader. Makes a little difference.

Re: Could you safely haul a small cut with single axle trailer

The questions I haven't seen asked or addressed here are:

How often to you plan to haul this thing?

How far?

What speed?

To me those three things would define a lot of what I wanted.
