    Yep. Orchard tractors. Google them. There's all kinds of brands. The sweeping fenders are supposed to lift the branches over the tires and operator station. There used to be quit a lot of them near us in the Michigan orchards and vineyards. Not so much anymore.

    Unsecured hay hauling

    Towing capacity

    Yes, I know that part of it. I have a hitch on my Suburban that's rated for 10,000# but the max tow rating is 8100#.
