This guy has a very strong death wish. :shock: The front end is popping up and it looked like just a tad more and over she would have gone. Guy needs a lesson in the safe loading of a tractor.

:idea: :idea: If loading on an incline, I've learned to back them on.
Always try the easiest thing first.

Backing them on is the safest in any situation.
