Sumthin ain't right

Tue Oct 23, 2012 9:39 pm

Helping Scrivet haul the stuff he bought at auction, and as we headed out last week with one set of loads. Here is my Ranger pulling a trailer made from a truk frame with dual wheels. Most of that lumber is 12 to 16 feet long seasoned oak.

And here is the load Scrivet was pulling the 1 ton service truck.

Sumthin just ain't right about these loads.

At first I thought that was a photoshop, then again I saw John one time pulling two tractors on one trailer with a Ranger…so no photoshop in this picture.
Everybody with their Ford trucks on here is starting to make me jealous !

I only had to go a mile, but by the feel it was no more than 4,000 pounds at most, and the Ranger is rated for 5,700 pound trailer. the nose of the trailer was a little heavy, but for that short a tip it was not a problem. I guaranty, I would not take off on a longer highway trip with a setup like that. at least not without electric brakes on the trailer.

Or with those tires that are the same ones that were on that trailer 35 years ago :shock: and were iffy then. But you do have a spare and it's not difficult to remove at all :D . (When we were unhooking I was looking at the spare on the tounge and the thought hit me "Just how is this attached, I don't see any bolts or anything" Turns out GRAVITY it was just laying there. :shock: :shock: :shock:

You know for a guy that carries around a tape measure....................That's a 13' x 7' bed...........Since you didn't measure it I guess that's why you need to carry the tape. :lol:

Naw, didn't get a motor with it, and besides mostly big round bales around now. You'd need something the size of a cub power unit :wink: to get one of those to go up. Or with a power unit if we found some small squares we could take the elevator to the field and launch them at the barn :{_}:


Elevator completely hand built by your cousin, mainly bolted together with very few welds, and used by you and your brother $40
Hay trailer used with the elevator $50
Pile of seasoned lumber mainly seasoned oak inch boards $80
Debt owed to John *.?-!.* cub owner spending several days, multiple trips helping load and unload, including digging out a ground hog infested 100 plus year old 12 x 15 blacksmith shop in a thunderstorm after dark PRICELESS(to John because he's NEVER going to let me forget it!)

Truthfully I hadn't thought much about it until Barb mentioned it. You can thank your cousin for that idea.
