    Pardon the lousy pictures, but it was from a phone. This looked to be a MasseyFerguson compact tractor. All I could really see, was that it had a 232 loader on it. So I really have no idea what brand tractor it was. I don't know if you can see it, but there was one chain across the middle of the tractor and was not even tight. I guess the tractor had a really good parking brake on it.
    Using a phone while driving is not that safe either

    This was this morning. The bush hog was hanging 5 ft. off of the trailer. In his defense, he did have a chain loosely draped through the brush guard on front. -2012-09-12_07-40-16_227-a

    Nahhh..... He's got that 1" nylon strap on the back to keep it from coming off the back end of the trailer. It ain't going nowhere!!

    Couldn't be 5 feet. He'd need a red flag tied to the back to be legal. I believe federal guideline is 4 foot overhang max and surely he would know and follow the transport regs.

    I like the shrink-wrapped car behind him. That's a nice look and I'll bet it's easy see out too.

    Sadly, I see stuff like this every week.

    Tractors, zero turn mowers, furniture stacked up on a truck or trailer.

    No rope, straps or chain, 'cause 'it'll ride'.

    Maybe they've been taking tips from a well known supplier's ratchet strap ad...

    Just curious, was this taken on I-24 or I-65 by chance?
    (And NO that's NOT my tractor!)
