Best Tractor Load Up

This guy has the age old question figured out. What question is that, you ask? The “How am I going to load up my tractor and take it down the road to use in another field?” question. The obvious answer of driving it to the next field seems to be an option that is not on the table here for whatever reason. Either the field is too far away, or maybe he is selling the thing and trying to load it up for the purchaser. Either way, this falls squarely in the category of “Things you should never do while driving a tractor.” Just like shooting a gun blindfolded is never recommended, neither is loading up an old farm tractor on to a trailer at a steep 45 degree angle. There are so many things that could go wrong.

So Many Ways This Tractor Could Have Gone South

For starters, if you can’t see where you are going, how will you know when to stop. This guy’s vision is pointed straight to the sky? That spells trouble my friends. I remember the last time I looked at the sky like that. I was in the 9th grade and the Jamison bully asked me for my lunch money. I refused and the next thing you know I was looking skyward after his right hook connected with my chin. He had his glory day in the sun. By the time I came to I was short my $2.50 for lunch and had a couple of loose teeth to contend with.

As bad as that was, things could have gone much worse for our John Deere superhero. If he went over the end of the trailer then he could end up with a bunch of mangled metal and broken bones. That is not a good situation to put yourself in. The other disconcerting fact is the trailer see-saw factor. I don’t know about you, but after the first attempt I would have shut off the engine and handed the keys off to someone else. What he is doing looks more dangerous than a fair ride! Come to think of it, fair rides are very dangerous. Trusting your life to something thrown together in a matter of days by people whose vocabulary consist of “a quarter to play a quarter to win” is something I have not thought through very often. I may have to rethink that. However, I still would not hop on a tractor and drive it up a trailer until the weight levels the whole thing out. No thanks, I am not that guy.

Just seeing him slide back down the ramp gives me the chills. It might excite you, who knows. I just know what regular 4 wheelers do when they flip over or tip backwards. If this
