My apologies if this belongs to a forum member, but I saw this on Craigslist and it made me cringe.

I’m guessing it’s locked up.

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.

I have seen bigger tractors than a cub loaded and unloaded at Godleys Auction in Charlotte,NC they have a couple of large front end loaders all they do is if it 's a non runner wrap a chain around the belly and take off.

That's not hurting it as long as they are easy with it and don't drop it. Why strain yourself when you have hydraulic power.

Now the interesting thing I noticed is that the tractor has a Fast Hitch and they have somehow reversed the hitch socket/drawbar beam and were using the fast hitch scrape blade on the front. Now maybe I've missed something along the way, but I don't think the fast hitch was designed to be reversed. :lol:

I once watched a guy load a John Deere A the same way. One single strap around the belly. He picked it up, swung it around and set it on the bed of the truck. I'm glad I collected the money before he loaded it but he was successful.

I don’t think he’s likely to hurt it simply by lifting it like that, but with a single strap around the belly, it doesn’t seem like there is much of anything preventing it from tipping forward or backward out of the sling?

Good point, I think the single strap is the nail biter. 2 straps would make more sense.
