    Default Re: trailer question

    Not sure how big the tractor itself is compared to my 3720, but I'm at 20' with my 3720 and depending what implements I carry I'm hanging over. Typically just the tail wheel on the MX.

    Like frencht points out additional length is really handy to tune tongue weight.

    My 2305 with the blower and the ballast box including the rear quickhitch comes to 14'. The FEL is actually a little shorter if I recall right. Henri

    I find that to be a very valid point when moving my 110 with cab but not much of an issue with the x749 or a 2305. For those using a light truck or car the balance issue and loading can make a big difference.
