There are more than 2 million farms in operation across the USA. So the farm equipment shipment is a rather common thing for Americans.
We have already experienced and are glad to re-experience shipping the following types of farm vehicles: air seeders, cotton pickers, hay rakes, loaders, mowers, combines, ballers, manure spreaders, lumbers, plows, skidders and many other things that are being transported for almost thousand times by us.
The great number of requests we get to ship such kind of equipment is a typical practice for Movewheels. We’ve got great experience and can provide you with the best individual solutions with our tractor hauling services.
MoveWheels has already shipped many sprayers for our clients in the United States. The farm tools are hand-operated, really easy to handle and you do not even need any training to learn how to work with them. They are really useful to apply pesticides, herbicides, or composting tea.
For many years, farmers have been using plows to bury their crop residues, break up the soil, etc. They are also useful for bringing the soil’s fresh nutrients to the surface. Another thing that you can do with a plow is to create trenches or furrows whenever you need to plant crops like potatoes. The more farm equipment you have, the more Movewheels is glad and ready to ship them!
This equipment is also known as a back or rear actor, it is a type of digger or excavator that is usually mounted on a tractor’s back or a front loader. It helps to haul soil, farm debris, and other materials to transfer them into trucks. Backhoes are fantastic at remaining stable while moving substantial burdens, as they use pressure-driven outriggers, stabilizers, and a couple of legs that can be let down for additional strength. And Movewheels can easy organize the whole process of transporting your backhoes.

In general, there are two types of haulers that are used for transporting agricultural equipment by Movewheels, and they are flatbeds and lowboys. The first one can be used if the total weight of the load is not more than 48K lbs, the length goes from 40’ to 50’, the height is up to 9’, and the width is up to 8.66’’. If not, a lowboy hauler will be used. But you should know that the flatbed is cheaper than the lowboy, simple because the latter is rare. So we recommend you, if it’s possible, to try to purchase an equipment with dimensions that is compatible with those of a flatbed, because it will save you money and help us to find a driver for you in the shortest time frames.
Usually, they get transported by train or by sea, but railways and ships cannot fulfill shipping to a specific place in USA. Our drivers will be able to ship your vehicles as quickly as it is possible to any address you are going to provide us with. No matter where you are located because we operate in all states. So we can easily find a farm equipment hauler near you.
