I don't post in this forum much, cause I really don't have much aside from my Cubs.. but, seems the Cub House has inherited for the time being some added visitors.
Gord had to move his collection of tractors and implements from the Barn he used to own.. and Jan 14th became the day to Move em on Out!
It was a day my brother-in-law had available, and Gord prefers to work with Ray on this stuff.. so away we went. A lot of the pics are on the CubFest Photo Host under Moving Day
, but here are a few to whet your whistle..
This is my preferred way of loading Tractors on a Trailer. Everything else requires more work. Not that I dislike hard work, but I will take the easy way when I can get it
3500+ lbs of Super H
Almost done for the first trip. Just adding small stuff and odds and sods to the rest of the load.
Oh, btw.. the truck and trailer take up 75 feet and Ray backed it in to the Barn.. oh about 250 feet from the road through an 8 foot farm fence gate off of a road 22 feet wide roughly from ditch to ditch. He had to take two shots at it.. the second one he had to pull ahead about 18 inches to get the trailer to bypass the fence post. Awesome driving. You should have seen him coming out. There is next to no room on either side of the gate, the ditch is right there...
Gord and I enjoyed ourselves, it was a nice day even with the snow coming down pretty hard. It took almost 2 hours to load and a little over an hour to unload. Unloading though was in the dark and in a heavy snow storm. You can see the amount of snow we got.. in this pic.. the pad had been cleared of snow by a backhoe with a front bucket.. hours before we came home with the tractors.
