That can be dangerous too. Do you do that often? A log arch is a good thing to have.

I dont have one no, and yes i do it semi regular.

Ive been thinking of trying to make my own arch out of an old truck axle and a engine hoist.

Truthfully though, even with weighted tires, it still loses traction long before the front gets light, and all of its done on 100% flat land

Look at the Beer and Tractors video. That's on flat ground also.

Ive seen that video 1000x times lol....

1- there was a large amount of alcohol induced stupidity at work there, i can count the number of beers ive drank in the last 5 yrs on one hand, my worst vice (besides copenhagen) is pepsi

2- I always hitch/chain/strap to the drawbar, after all thats why its there :), after going for abit of a ride on an 8N i learned my lesson

3- A log on flat ground has no opposing directional force, the only thing your fighting is the weight/friction against the ground, its not tryingto fight you from going the direction you want to go

4- I learned a long time ago, tug o wars between trucks, tractors, whatever only prove who is heaiver and has superior traction, not power, i had a 78 F350 dually with a hot 400, creeper 4 and 4.30 rear gears, thing woulda pulled a house off its foundation, back in a circle and back onto said foundation, however, i lost a tug ( on dirt) to a 4.3L blazer ( his was 4wd)

Doing stupid things only results in mayhem when you are stupid about doing them :)

Wish I could put pix on here from my phone! Do you know someone who can bend three or four inch galvanized pipe? That's the way to go. And use wheels/spindles from rear of front drive vehicle. Found an old one of mine on the host:

Belongs to a friend of mine who died last year. Pipe was bent by a local electrical contractor. Don't know what hubs/spindles he used, but wheels from my 84 Delta 88 fit it.
