    Default Trailer mover for FEL

    Hello I was wandering if anyone knows where I can get a trailer mover for my FEL (like the ones the trailer dealerships have) my tractor has a global carrier and I've searched all over the net with no luck. I would like one that has all the ball sizes plus be able to haul around a fifth wheel. Even if someone knows where I can get some plans to make my own would be sweet but buying one would be easier if possible.

    Thank you.

    I googled loader bucket trailer hitch and came up with many hits. You could just add a Tripple Ball Trailer Hitch, HarborFreight has them.

    What about for moving fifth wheels?

    What is the pin weight, and will your FEL handle it?

    I built a simple one for my Kioti, but i have the ability to lift the weight. What is the lift capacity of your tractor. Mine is over 2,500 pounds if i remember right. My 5th wheel picks up real easy, but i do need counterweight on back.

    I added a plate of 3/8" steel on top and bottom of my bucket and inserted a 1" shank 2-5/16 ball thru the resulting 1" thick steel. works great.

    I made a removable 2" receiver for the smaller trailers. i had to make it extend so i could see it thru the cab without having to stand up and press face on the glass.

    Its so much easier moving trailers with the FEL. you can push theme anywheres you want. I pot my 5th wheel 29'8 trailer in a 30' wide barn with absolute precision-0327111410-jpg-0327111953-jpg-0329111630-jpg-0329111630a-jpg-_mg_5063-jpg-0403111220-jpg.

    Looked all over on the net for what you are looking for. Looks like you may have to purchase a hitch and mod it to the bucket. I will tell you that I moved a large commercial sized wood chipper out of a low lying area on my property using my BX2660 and a chain hooked to the bucket; it was a bit scary. I wouldn’t want to do it again.

    Yours is a gooseneck trailer. A fifth wheel pin doesn't stick down as far, and uses a plate to latch on the pin.

    I agree about pushing trailers, much better!

    The pin weight is 2,250lbs and the loaders lift capacity is 4228lbs. I know all the rv dealerships here have an attachment in their quick attach that allows them to move any trailer type, I'm wishing I took a pic of one.

    They are most likely homemade. Just draw something up. Make sure you have an attachment spot for safety chains.
