Loader & Trailer team work

Recommended Posts

I found these pics from my shop construction. I moved around 7 tons of sand & dirt. Most to the far side of my property so the trailer was a huge time saver vs driving the loader 1 scoop at a time;

I know these trailers are rated at a half ton. But heaped with damp sand was very impressive to me. And it handled that weight at top hydrostat speed across the property many times...

I need help....

I was moving some topsoil 2 days ago, with a big scoop I STILL loose traction.

I just put on the wider Ag tires with 14 gals of fluid in them and have about 100lbs (weight/hydro tank) on the back of the tractor.

I have no way to mount a weight box...I guess I just need to find some type of heavier wheel weights..? any ideas?

Use a bit of that sand in some plastic weights found at Sears or EBay. Use some quick Crete and pour a set of wheel weights. Go to a local fab shop and have a set of weights cut and drilled.

You mean the plastic coated concrete weights? It seams like they would continue to disintegrate from the bolt holes out...? But I'll try it, I think I have a few around...Thanks MartyThanks also Dan...a local fab/weld shop is a good idea for custom weights...and no shipping costsI would like to find a smaller type of "manhole" cover to use sm00

25 lb wts off of bar bells drill out real easy to make wheel wts. You can stack them on just like factory wts.

Greg, I meant the cast iron ones. I have used 4 of them so far over one oem wt. They don't fit inside the wheel although one might be able to find sets that do. My son left these laying around.

Another iron possiblity would be the couplers used on LARGE plumbing valves. I've eyeballed hem on jobs a few times, not sure if a junk yard might be a source or not. They are heavy and round.

At one point I purchased a set of "EZ Weight" brackets. They are out of business is seems. But the brackets were flat stock and a threaded rod. The one plate had the rod welded to it, the other had a center hole to go over the rod. Bolted to the wheel weight holes. Then you hung barbell weights. The walmart 10lbs fit inside the wheels, and I think the 25's go over the rim.If you are running rear spacers you do not have to worry about the hub sticking out into the wheel.My personal favorites are the Bolens FMC version, like on my loader.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
