straw hauling
had the opertunity to drive the deutz hire tractor today and was quite impressed with its performance compared with the fendts that we normally use my only critism is that the gear stick is a long way away when you select 5th gear which is the furthest away but a very gutsy tractor

Re: straw hauling
yes the trailers are long and low i have never seen anyone make them yet they are converted lorry trailers normally we add about 15-20ft to the front then attach a drawbar they run on small wheels to keep the height down

Re: straw hauling
Hi Tim, The trailers that you modify, were they originally step-frame or low loaders? If they were step-frame can you photo the A frame detail so we can see how you fabricated the hitch please? It would be interesting to see on FP. Regards JDD.

Re: straw hauling
a couple of the trailers started as drag trailers behind lorrys these have the original draw bars removed and have approx20ft added to the front of the bed we then level the trailer to see where the drawbar height should be as they are matched to the tractor that will tow them these trailers are tandem axle the tri axles were originally car transporters and go through a similar process these a prefered for there low original height and there suspension we generally make a trailer a year the next one we make i will photo and post on here!
