Why did you sell the other one? It was sick.
LOL Thanks man.

The other one was paid off and I had a kid on the way. So I sold it for $14k and paid off a high interest student loan.

That is why i bought it. The inside is even cleaner. No winters and it wont ever see a winter. Therefore, I need to get my ranger roadable for winter since I dont have a 4x4 to drive this year.

i would have loaded the tractor backwards, put more of the weight on the trailer axles & not have quite the tounge weight you have there, most of the weight seems to be ahead of the trailer axles. just a thought..

You are right. I was mostly messing around and I had a few other things to load yet on the back. That tractor is diesel so it is very nose heavy. I load it like this when I tow it with my one ton as well. No sag lol

I doubt that little engine diesel or not is very heavy, most of tractors weight is on the truck and that is why it is sitting like it is.

The pic somehow got deleted but I have trailered tractor engines half as big as your tractor without that much squat...
