I looked all over the net and cant find a ball park wieght for a pull type combine. The old man wants to get a Case IH 1692 pull type combine but they are prob 300 or less km's away. Can a 3/4 ton handle these? Might have to go down a few good size hills too. I know the 1482 pushed our tractor around in the field if you try to stop too quick, but that loaded of course. Not sure what the tonge weight would be like either?

Well Ill know for sure if I hook up to our combine we have now, but it will prob be a few weeks till it dries up enough to get to it. I have mental pictures of my truck jack knifing down a hill and killing a school bus full of children, then spending 30 years in jail. Lol.

I looked up the 1482 then decided to try 1682. Grew up on a farm too. Guessing 14 of the 1482 is the head width so figured 1682 made sense. found a page below. That dude weighs 17000+ lbs. With a offset hitch stopping would be a bitch. If you try I would roll down the passenger side windows. That way when it jack knifes into the passenger side you wont' get glass in your face and don't take a passenger.

Those combines fold up nice for transport mode. They pull directly behind you when its folded up. 17,000 eh? Hmmmmmm.......... no brakes is the enemy here.

My friend got to work that accident, I just pulled them off his facebook page. The silverado pulled out infront of it, I want to say he lived, but I dont see that happening

So the combine only wieghs 17,000 pounds???:confused:

If so you can haul it easy, I just took a 7810 into town that weighs about 18,000 punds with no problem

I would say you can pull it but I would load it on a trailer with brakes!!!! Either that or have a buddy sit in it to stop it.

You shouldnt have a problem. Im a demco dealer and i deliver 1000 & 1300 bushell grain carts all the time. They are comparable in weight, start slow at the top of the hills you are worried about.

I am gonna agree with all of the above. Stopping will be the enemy there, make sure you can do it!!
I have had some pretty decent loads behind my truck and I KNOW it could pull more

I think you can handle this just fine, just be careful on the hills. I helped a buddy move a road grader a few months back with his 3/4, I'm pretty sure that antique grader was 20k +. No trailer brakes, stopping was kinda tricky
