I bought a ford 3930 over the weekend. It has front end loader and loaded tires in the rear. does anyone have a idea of what this tractor weights? it feels a lot heavier than my 135 massey. I"m not sure I have enough truck and trailer to pull it over 2 mountain passes. thanks

According to the specs, the 3930 weighs 5446 bare bones.
My comparable 4000 4x4 has 680 lbs of water/antifreeze in each tire.
Add a drawbar, and a few other things and you are looking at 6500 lbs.
Now add a loader and you are looking at 7500 approximately, as I cannot guess at the model loader you have.
I have not had any issues pulling my tractor. I find that with bumper pull trailers, the key to pulling and tire life is of course good tires and second a level hitch.
Example-- with a hitch too high, the rear axle of a trailer is loaded far too much.
