It would require some major disassembly to make it fit onto a trailer legally but it can be done. When that machine was delivered to the original dealer, it was in pieces, most likely packed intocrates or at least strapped down to pallets and then the dealer assembled it.

How wide is it? 9 12 14? A hydra swing will trail straight behind, not off to one side. Make sure tires are good, grease the bearings, plan a good route and go. If you feel you need to trailer it, remove the hitch an set it on the trailer lenghwise. Have done that myself more than once. Biggest issue with that is you need a big enough loader to pick it up and then pick it down when you get there.

I pulled a 9 foot MoCo that was overall about 11 foot about 130 miles, just called and got a permit no big deal. I also pulled a 9ft Haybine that was 9 ft. about about 170 miles and across state lines. I just called for a permit, no big deal. Both times they routed me over the interstate.

If you have a ramp at either end, you could back it on from the side, set it down and secure it, then unhook the swing cylinder and PTO shaft and turn the tongue over the trailer.

How many miles do you have to go? I'd be tempted to just hook it to the truck, pop the hubcaps and grease the bearings and check their pre load before leaving the dealer, take good tires to put on if it needs them and hit the road. As long as it's not on a trailer I wouldn't bother with permits either. We've towed implements hundreds of miles at highway speeds. You have the same bearings as any trailer does, all you need to watch is that you have good tires. An implement tire can take substantial speed if it's not loaded heavy.

A man from Indiana bought a 499 haybine from me and we put it on a 32ft goose neck trailer.It took two loaders and some diassembly but it was accomplished in an hour.He also had a FWD 1850 Oliver.Looked like a big load to me but got there fine.

Weight of item to be towed permitting, I always bring and use (good to decent)balanced road tires, usually trailer or HD tires for pick ups. I don't have to worry about overheating them (though less of a problem during winter)and they will carry road speeds for sure. For shorter trips (60 mi or less)and/or if ag tires are a must, I use aircraft tires (as advertised by a certain company in TH). Have to stay below 25 mph because of possible overheating, but they will never fail you either.
I'd say to just take a thermos with hot coffee and a couple sandwiches and pull it home and enjoy the ride!

Unless you enjoy drama and you have some kind of force field to keep someone from pulling out in front of you, get a permit. What reason is there not to?

I'd be more worried about the fact that Chicago is between most of Wisconsin and most of Indiana.

First of all need to know if it is a hydraswing if it is just like said side load it and remove toungue It will only be about 6inches over that way. IL farm equipment with a wheel base as from draw pin to wheels does not need a permit just go. I do this all the time LEGALLY IN will need a permit. WI if you stay OFF the INTERSTATE you don't need a permit if farm equipment, not over 10ft wide per the WI DOT permit office. I checked. The gal confirmed what I had been told before that. So if you bother to get the IN permit it will cost you about $35.00 Will need signs for both front and back with flags for the corners and widest part of the load. Run out to I-39 and go north no Chicago that way. If you take IN highway 10 to IL over to I-57 there is no scale. Turns into hwy 17 in IL goes right to hwy 47 and north to I-80 no scales either. now your in WI with no scales. There is a scale on US-24 on Il side of IN-IL line.
