weight of an H

I hauled my 41 H to the feed store and weighed it today. H with one set of weights, belly pump, and half tank of gas was 4500 pounds.

Thanks John, I was wondering what an H weighed. That info might come in handy if I get a certain H up north I have my good eye on. :lol: .
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

The plan at present is to bring it down for the day on Friday. One day of driving a gas hog truck is about all I can afford at present. Rest of the days, the Ranger will be my transportation.

I didn't know what an "H" weighed (Thank God for ignorance sometimes), but after towing one from Cinncinnati to South Carolina, I can attest that they will make a truck guzzle gas. I can usually get 18 mpg at highway speeds, which are at least the same as posted signs ( :shock: ), and on that trip I was lucky to get 11. We also got off the interstate at one point in Kentucky to avoid a snarl, and encountered narrow, windy roads. I got to watch my temperature gauge climb as well, since it was the hottest day of the whole summer.

That "H" is at my farm to stay unless someone ELSE tows it off.
