That’s not the point. A 7 pin on a tractor has nothing to tell the brake control to actuate. Lots of wiring and proximity switches would need to be installed for the brake control to workUnderstood. I have a portable brake controller available on my existing truck.
we rented one every thanksgiving to put up my dads xmas tree lights.I've joked around with my wife about getting one to do our Christmas lights as the front tree is pushing 50'. A friend of ours has a farm and he could use one as well.
They are really handy.
We've been looking to go in halvsies for one. However, we've never found one under $12K used. They've been going crazy in auctions as well.
We can rent them for a weekend for $300, so that's the plan until we find a used one within our price range.
Hey Manup ! Welcome to TBN , There are several tractor brands that come with a pig tail for a trailer hookup & Have You contacted a dealer with your needs & also IMHO I think might be hard to find a Tractor that can pull that weight without doing the same thing to your lawn as far as ruts, Because of the size tractor You would need & the weight might be be the same as your truck ! Again I would contact a tractor dealer & to see if a tractor could meet your requirements,Without having the same issues as your truck IMHO.I own a large Victorian house, and to maintain it purchased a tow behind manlift. The manlift weighs roughly 5,000 pounds. To get to the spots I want to work on, I currently hook the trailer (similar to a two wheeled boat trailer) to my truck and pull it around my house. Once there I unhitch and get to work. There are some restrictions in my yard which prevent my truck from getting through with the lift and it ruts up the yard pretty good. Not to mention it looks pretty bad to the neighbors with the truck parked in the yard. Getting to the lower lawn there is a downhill grade that drops roughly 10 feet over 200 feet. Once there, the lawn is flat all around the house.
I'd like to get a "right sized" tractor to pull the lift around the house.
What size tractor could pull and safely stop the 5,000 pound trailer? The manlift has electric brakes so could the tractors be set up with a 7 pin towing connector to match the manlift? Really don't want to get the manlift rolling and discover I cannot stop it.
Appreciate any help offered.
