    Unsecured hay hauling

    Maybe go try to make a bale fall off your trailer doing donuts or something and video it! Haha I know it would take a lot of truck to make it happen haha!

    Unsecured hay hauling

    It depends on how its loaded and size of bales! If the trailer is specifically designed for bales or just a flatbed! I know on the self unloading round bale trailers your worry about the bales coming off on a curve or just slipped off wont happen! If they get in serious situations then sure like...

    pickup truck size

    The older trucks weight was lower than newer ones! The extra wires and plastic is actually heavier than you think! I know 60s mustangs no where near as heavy as modern mustangs! Also lightweight trucks are not better for towing its the other way around you need heavier truck to be safer and able...

    pickup truck size

    You say they need to appeal to the 85% group that are men but you didn't figure into this that out of those 85% that 65% of them are married so he is correct that women changed all the car industry with all kinds of options and features! Just because a man was buying it didn't mean his wife...

    pickup truck size

    I had a 1ton 79 Ford truck with a 390 in the late 80s it was a work truck that my dad bought off his boss! I now have a 2014 1 ton ford both had 4 doors and both I believe took up just as much space on the road except my 2014 is not a dually! So why do you think they are bigger because my...

    Noob question 4 wheel drive

    As to the rpm it depends on what improvements you use if a improvement uses PTO then needs to be at right speed! If you lug the engine too much by trying to keep rpm low it may cause it to overheat! On some tractors they have warnings in owners manual about not using 4x4 all the time I think it...

    Sub-Compact/Compact Recommendations

    Well im of a totally different nature! If I was you I would not buy a tractor for its belly mower to me thats all a gimmick! A zero turn will cut it in half the time if its finish mowing quality land! If its not finish quality land and grass then a brush hog is better! But if i was to have...

    Transporting boulders

    It depends on what size you are talking? Boulder is a subjective measurement! What diameter are they? With diameter you can figure average weight! You can then figure out how many to load! After all this your question is easier to answer because if straps on one boulder you use two one going...

    Want to buy a dump trailer, kinda torn here.

    I would go with gooseneck and a 20ft dump that has 2ft sides like 7ftx20ft with 3 7k axles! If you go higher than 2ft sides do you have a loader that can reach and dump over 4ft into center of the trailer? With 3 axles the weight is spread out more front to back less goes onto the truck but...

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I would not use braided lines! Just get good quality fuel line. The braided is stronger but if they get pin holes they can be harder to find exactly where they are leaking! The reasons for these lines on your tractor not lasting longer could be that its wrong type! Or was old before tractor was...

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    I plan to build a kind of cutter tooth but not spending what I have seen some go for! But these trees I have are only like 4 inch diameter but even in wet ground they hold like a 3ft oak tree! Plus they grow 1 inch thorns in a big bush! My boys hate them since they usually get to help pick up...

    Well not sure why anyone thought lifting closer to the tractor was wrong! But it dont matter what you are using a tractor, excavator, or a crane the farther from the center of gravity of your equipment the more unstable it becomes and the more small movements have chance to become a disaster! I...

    In future better to have lifting strap and lift under bucket closer to tractor! This gives you better lift and control on objects like metal blocks of that size!
