    [QUOTE=Renze;2139358]
    Last time i used it, i had to brake on the tractor alone, and those dry drum brakes squeeled like an Arab warrior.... The tractor wheels didnt skid due to the 2 ton drawbar load, but when i have another wagon hooked behind it, i get over 15 ton CGVW so i do need trailer brakes... When tractor and my own trailer have brakes, the borrowed trailer behind it, will never be able to overtake me when i get into an emergency situation..

    "those dry drum brakes squeeled like an Arab warrior.... "

    Now THAT'S funny!!!!!

    You can try the chains like others have mentioned, but believe me the hay wagons flex....a LOT!

    Yes in NH they are considered farm equipment, but only if you use a pin hitch. If the wagon has a ball hitch than its a trailer and needs to display lights. As for road speed. I tow my racks behind my pickup to go between fields, some running gear are straight down the road at 40 and some shimmy at 20. That's unloaded, loaded speed is usually 15-30.

    Do you have an unloader in the bottom of that wagon?

    Yes, it's a Loadhandler and that thing continues to amaze me, I had wood ricked in it rounded up from front to back, at the woodpile, I just unloaded one rick at a time and crank the next one back. Saved a lot of walking. Here's a link with some pictures. http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/a...-you-call.html

    chain the front axle so it will not rotate, then slide the front tires where you need to go, unless your tractors "green" and dont have enough power!

    Nother update: last summer i welded an 8 ton tandem under it from a scrapped Deutz-Fahr sefloading hay wagon, and cut wheel wells in the siderail to accomodate the bigger 13-16 tires.. It pulls much lighter now, both on- and offroad
