Moving your farm tractor – and any other equipment or trailers that you need to be transported – with Tractor Transport begins with a call to one of our logistics specialists. They'll determine the weight of your equipment, including the dimensions and whether it needs an oversized load permit. We can also handle all paperwork needed, from weigh station forms to customs, if you need to cross into Mexico or Canada.
Tractors, while they have wheels, aren't typically rated to move down regular roadways, and moving them on a step-deck or RGN trailer is often more efficient than trying to drive them from one location to the next. Tractors that exceed height limitations along the transport route require step-deck trailers or RGN trailers. Step-deck trailers have ramps that allow you to drive your tractor onboard. Likewise, RGN trailers have drop-down necks that allow you to drive your farm tractor onboard the trailer.

Our most versatile and commonly used trailer by far is the standard flatbed trailer, made evident by the sheer number of them on the road every day. A great aspect of flatbed trailer shipping is the stability of the bed and the fact that these common carriers come in a wide variety of sizes and dimensions. A flatbed trailer, as the name suggests, is marked by a flat trailer surface that's able to be loaded with stability by balancing and securing cargo on the outside edges of the trailer.
The Removable Gooseneck (RGN) trailer has a detachable front end that turns the trailer into a ramp. Past the detachable section of the trailer, RGNs are equipped with a double drop formation that lends the payload an extra amount of height, usually around 12 extra inches. The variable nature of the RGN trailer allows it to accommodate cargo that is more difficult for less flexible trailers. Referred to as a "detach", the RGN is ideal for transporting less than standard cargo, equipment that is longer, taller, or otherwise a non-normal size.
Similar to the standard Removable Gooseneck Trailer, the extended RGN has an added section for additional length and capacity for particularly tricky transport jobs. When cargo is too long for the standard Removable Gooseneck (RGN), we sometimes employ the extended RGN. Like the standard RGN, the back portion of the stretch RGN is removable, creating a convenient ramp. The extended RGN has a versatile extension feature that allows it to meet an increased number of length requirements for cargo.
A drop deck, or "step deck" trailer resembles a standard flatbed model with a single drop in order to give the trailer the capacity for more cargo height. This is especially advantageous when the payload exceeds the standard height requirements for a regular flatbed. This is especially advantageous when the payload exceeds the standard height requirements for a regular flatbed. For especially large or oddly sized pieces of equipment, the drop deck trailers present a uniquely ideal solution; tractors, farming combines and large construction and industrial equipment.
When a job necessitates a trailer that can carry an irregularly long piece of equipment or cargo, we employ the extended drop deck trailer. Like a flatbed with either a single or a double attached gooseneck, the extended drop deck gives the user capacity for additional height and length to meet the needs of a specific cargo load. Typically, the extended RGN is more flexible than the standard RGN, so it's only used when absolutely necessary.
A lowboy is one of the lowest trailers to the ground, as its name suggests. Many heavy hauling tasks are carried out with the help of the lowboy trailer because of its use for extremely large, heavy, and oversized or over-dimension equipment. Typically when you see a sign that says "Oversize Load" on the interstate, the cargo being hauled is done so with a lowboy trailer. Many shippers use lowboy models as their top choice for these jobs due to their capacity to carry extremely heavy weights of cargo, and their stability as the lowest, off-the-ground option.
Horsepower is the defining ingredient of a farm tractor. Your tractor’s horsepower determines which types of attachments you can implement. Low-horsepower tractors (16-45 hp) are limited in the types of attachments they can pull. Tractors with 50 horsepower or more are considered farm tractors.
Farm tractors come in two main styles: wheeled and tracked. Attachments are operated through the power take-off (PTO), a spinning drive-shaft that transfers power from the tractor to the implement. Most farm tractors also feature a three-point hitch that’s hydraulically powered.
