    The tractor gets towed everytime it goes to the farm. It's never left out there. The number of trips vary but it's more than once or twice a month.

    Towed on a trailer? Usually only on its way to the shop.
    Towed behind something else (not on a trailer)? Only if it is disabled or won't start.

    I would guess about once per month. Either taking the kubota to help friends or family or taking my Allis Chalmers to a parade or tractor show.

    Mine gets towed on my trailer about 4 time a year now. Usually to a friends house to do some tilling or bushhogging. When we were building our cabin it was towed pretty much everyday for 4 months or so till the barn was finished.

    "Tow your tractor" to me means pulling it.

    If "towed" means loading it on a trailer, and 'towing' the trailer, then its a bit different than towing the tractor.

    Which do you mean? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I tow the trailer with the tractor on it, whenever the tractor goes more than a few miles from 'home'.

    Default Re: How often do you tow your tractor

    I farm (small scale) on the fringes of a big city. I rent a good bit of my hay ground. (or cut on shares) Also, I've recently aquired a new piece of property that is about 12 miles from the "old place". During the summer months, seldom does a day go by that one of the three tractors doesn't take a ride. Last year, I logged over 3500 miles on ,my trailer, AND NEVER LEFT THE 2-COUNTY AREA I OPERATE IN.

    The baler gets flat-towed behind the pick-up, but rake and disc mower go on the trailer with a tractor.
