Cropmaster weights and dimensions

Post by stew83 » Fri Jul 05, 2013 7:12 am

Hi there
I'm looking for some info on cropmaster dimensions and weights. I live on the gold coast and have a cropmaster to pick up from toowoomba. I was thinking car trailer behind fwd
I'm just not sure if it will be within legal weight to tow/ size for trailer ect. If not I am able to take work truck, but as tractor does not have wheels on at moment it might be a struggle winching it up ramps to load. What are the rough dimensions of cropmaster width and length without wheels? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. I'll just need to convert to metric then see how I go from there.

Round it up, 112" = 9ft 4" = 2800mm. 72" = 6ft = 1800mm.

Cropmaster on a trailer

Post by prblake » Fri Jul 05, 2013 1:21 pm

Stewart
According to the conversion I used the Cropmaster weighs 1500kg all up and without wheel weights. Normally you would need to be cautious as tractor tyres in Australia are usually half full of water and this weighs plenty but as your tractor is without wheels you dont need to worry about this but i think you would have serious problems dragging it on to a car trailer without wheels.

In Queensland a car trailer with overide brakes can weigh up to 2000kg so with a trailer tare of 500 to 600kg you will be right on the limit. Again without rear wheels you could probably scrape in under the limit. If you have electric brakes then the trailer will be rated to 3000kg I think. I tow my Cropmaster on a standard size car trailer behind a Nissan Navarra without problem but it certainly lets you know it is there.

Thanks for that info Paul. I was already thinking it would be tight weight wise for the car trailer, as it's a hire 1 it would only have override brakes.
The wheels are with the tractor just not on it, it will prob be easier if I get time to go there and fit them back on. Weight wise it might be safer to take work truck rated to 6000 kg.

That`s a bit under 1 metric Tonnes. (circa 50kg to the cwt)
You must be a young fella
Fully equipped with cast wheels would be about 1 & 1/2 tonnes.
Normal car carrying trailer behind your ute no worries

Hi you will tow it safely with ease,I've towed my 990 on a car trailer,with cast rear centres and 5' Howard slasher(way heavier than a croppy)The trailer bottomed out a few times,the trailer didn't wander at 90km/hr and cruised along behind the F350 like a dream.

I was referring to waht you can legally carry with overide brakes in Queensland which is what Stewart was asking about.

Hi folks,
Finally managed to get time to get cropmaster back from toowoomba at weekend. After sitting out for 30 years it's surprising how good shape the tinwork and wheels are in. It's an early model with round front end and it has 6 speed box. Unfortunately at the moment the engine is seized. The serial no is p19535 and engine no22242. If anyone is able to date it for me that would be good. Il try and post some pics when I het chance.
Thanks stewart

Your Cropmaster 6 speed Stewart was manufactured in the first half of 1949.
