    I made this one for my camper and flat bed. The camper is all it wants and I have never moved the flat bed with a load. I don't know how what kind of tractor you have but I think I would want a catagory III tractor before taking that much weight off road.

    thanks for all the replys. I will probably just use my old hay wagon. Not really wanting to damage the tractor, trailer, or operator anytime soon.

    Your not going to damage anything,

    We pull our gooseneck in the feild all the time. You just have to use your head, no different then pulling wagons or implements.

    I don't have a picture of the trailer hooked up to the tractor, but here is a 3 point hay spike with a gooseneck ball on it I built several years ago. I use it to move my hay from the fields with a 20 foot gooseneck trailer (not the 32 foot trailer shown).

    Man, their heavier (and more expensive model) looks like what I welded up in my shop a few years ago. I made the obvious mistake of selling a couple on eBay like I did my regular hitch and now I see almost identical copies being sold by companies. It seems to be based on my first version that didn't include the safety chains that keep the 3 pt. hitch from moving up when you're stopping though. I'm not going to even post a picture of that final version for obvious reasons. Here's a picture from about 5 or 6 years ago of my first prototype. I've used this very hitch (still unpainted ) on a 100 hp tractor to move around a loaded GN trailer that weighed about 15,000 pounds. The only difference is that I'd updated this hitch to include my safety chains to keep the hitch from moving upwards if you stop fast or go down a steep hill.

    I moved a 25'+5 gooseneck with 200 square bales on it behind my M4800 kubota (48 hp). I did have to put a round bale on the FIL hay spike to keep the front tires on the ground. The 3pt didn't have a problem picking it up though.

    Is there any implement on the market that you can use with the tractor to move a loaded gooseneck trailer? (14000lbs) I don't want to use it on the road, just across fields.

    Thanks
    How heavy do you think your trailer will be when loaded with hay?

    i dont know why you would say that.

    if its the standard inverted T thingie for moveing goosenecks with add some reinforcement to it and use it!

    only thing i would caution is adding a brake controler to the tractor so you can activate the brakes on the trailer when its fully loaded even behind a tractor the size of yours.

    Do you have a drawing for the hitch you made? I've been thinking of making one of these as soon as I get off the road and get home.
    Thanks
