    I have a New Holland TC40. Same machine different color. Great tractor. I haul mine on a 20 ft Loadtrail trailer 10k Lb rating. I put the tractor w/loader, 6 ft tiller, 6 ft pulverizer and 6 ft bb on it. I pull them with 2 wheel 1500. I haven't had any problems. I have a small lawn service buisness so I move around alot. The only thing I wish I did different would be to have tilt down ramps. The slide in ramps get heavy after a couple of times of moving them. Good luck with your tractor you will enjoy it.

    WOW, how do you load all that "stuff" on that trailer? Do you have to put the BB on first, then set the loader on top of the bb with the rest of the items behind the tractor? Can you show me a picture of this? I am surprised you want fold down ramps also. I was thinking with a 20 ft trailer, someone with a DX40 or TC40 may want the ability to overhand a finish mower by a foot or so. Maybe there is room. Thanks everyone!

    Rayh76, my equipment is not stored where I live. The next time I'm there I'll take some pictures. I load the BB on the front with a 2 ft space between it and the pulverizer. Then I park the tractor with the loader reaching over top of the pulverizer and the bucket on the floor in the dump position. I have the tiller mounted on the tractor. I have the back of the tiller about 2 inches from the back of the trailer. So tilt up ramps would work. I'm thinking about converting my ramps to tilt up this summer. I never weight the loaded trailer but it seems to be pretty well balanced.

    Just happened to have some pictures of my D40 loaded on a trailer behind my 1/2 ton Dodge. No problem, just get her loaded (balanced) right.
    You are going to love that DX40

    Excellent taste in tractors! (I have a DX40). I pull it
    with a Volkswagen in a trailer just like in KLM's post.

    A quick hitch may be of little benefit with deluxe extendable side links.
    I do have a hydaulic top and tilt which may make things even easier.
    But my experience was that it took more time and effort to
    change implements with the "quick attach" then without it

    Happy tractoring!

    Thanks for all the comments guys. Thanks for the pics klm. How long is that trailer? Does your mower stick out the back a bit?

    The trailer is 16' and yes the mower hangs out two or three feet.
