Any of you have any good references for a contract flatbed hauler you've used in the past? I need to transport a tractor from the Black Hills to Tejas land. I really don't have the time to go up there and get it.

That’s a tough spot to originate from, kind of in the middle of nowhere. Likely need someone who’s passing through, and picking up a full load somewhere else. Problem is, the full load might already have them maxed for GVW, so that’s an issue. How heavy is your tractor? Anyone in your area bring bentonite back down to Texas, I used to load west of Belle Fouche quite a bit.

Around 1500lbs is what it shows. I have asked also on Linkedin to see if anyone needs a backhaul coming back from Williston/Minot/Dickinson. I did find one hauler that gave a quote for $1565 partial load. Now I need to find out when the guy who bought my place will be there to show the hauler what exactly goes. Rotary Tiller, Box Blade etc.

And it's 8 miles south of Sundance towards Newcastle is where the tractor is, yep middle of nowhere but sure pretty around this time of year.

1,500? I always thought of tractors as being much heavier. Hmmm

15000 I bet.

Try u ship. Best bet for the cash. Don't expect the driver to be able to unload or load... had bad luck with that and one laying belly up lol

1554lbs according to the owners manual not counting the bucket, box blade or rotary tiller. It's a compact not a full blown farming tractor, but for maintaining a 5-10 acres it's fine.

I'll look up U-Ship, I have to just coordinate someone being there to load it for them, wife or kids can unload it at the house.
