I've been hauling Ns on a 16 ft. lowboy behind a Ram 1500. I hauled a 9n , 6' brushog and a Dearborn cultivator 3hrs home without a hitch, (no pun intended) The Powermaster is for sure heavier, but I was wondering about pulling it and a JD 6 ft hog with the half ton. It's 100 miles or so, fairly straight and no hills to speak of. Power won't be a problem but I'm wondering how it will handle.

i pulled 53-64 tractors with a 5' hog on a 16' trailer with a ram 1500 for roughly 12 years till I got the $$ to buy a real truk and real trailer.

will it work. YES. are there better ways.. YES :)

be carefull. stopping is more important than going... ballance it good and make sure you have brakes. tie the load.. and go.

The difference between an N and an 801 is about 1000 lbs.
Assuming the brush mowers are about the same weight I doubt the 1K lbs would make that much difference in your load.
801 is a bit longer too so your placement on the trailer will be slightly different but you can adjust that as needed.
Biggest thing will be adequate brakes on the trailer. I doubt pulling power or GVW on the pickup be exceeded by the larger tractor.

Thanks. I'm not planning on hauling it around. I'm pretty much sticking to Ns. I just got a good trade on this one and need to get it home. When it leaves here it will be on someone else's trailer. Unfortunately, this is probably the closest I'll ever have to a real truck and trailer, unless I win the lottery or my rich uncle dies in the poorhouse Wink

I hauled my 851 with my GMC Envoy, 6cyl, 275 hp. on a single axle trailer w/o brakes. Trip was about 100 miles. No problem towing it. Just go slow in the right lane. The last two miles were all uphill and my temp gauge reminded me of it. In the end all was well.

I've got a tandem axle,but no brakes. I usually assume everyone in front is going to slam on the brakes, every car that comes up from a side road is going to pull out in front of me, and whoever is behind me is going to rearend me. That's without a trailer. X5 with a trailer. This has got to be easier than manuvering in and out of Austin with the 9N and equipment.

I use a 1980 Chev heavy half ton to haul all my tractors with a 16 foot car type trailer but I do have one axle with brakes. You can do it but if you do drive slower and leave extra space between you and the guy in front of you. Your truck will not have trouble pulling it but it sure will not stop on a dime let along a thousand of them. Had the brake controller go bad on me when I was hauling my Oliver Super 88 and it is a lot heavier then any 801 is and I did just fine I just made sure I had extra stopping space

By the way a brake kit will cost you less then $100 per side for that trailer.

Guess I'll never know. This guy bugged me for a month to trade his tractor for a pile of motorcycle stuff I had. When I got it all together and got the trailer out to start loading, he called and backed out. His wife cluck peck peck cluck, doesn't want him to have a bike. I didn't know I was trading with her. My new first line is if you have to ask permission,don't waste my time. Evil or Very Mad
