Little contest

Postby Shane Nelson » Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:12 am

I bought this tractor yesterday viewtopic.php?f=1&t=101125 and ask the man if he had a way to load all of it he said yes. Contest question, how did the tractor get on the trailer?

Bingo! Had a brand new 6V battery in it, he said bring some gas with you. It runs great with no smoke at all.

Now I got to figure out how to get it off the trailer with front tires shot, no clutch and brakes not even sure about brakes.

For the record the man had a bucket truck that once belonged to a power company and he loaded all the bigger stuff with the rope winch on it.

I have rolled off a couple of non-running Cubs with flat tires by parking the trailer in a shallow ravine with the back of the trailer at the bottom. Gravity helps you get her off, and prevents it from rolling away once it is off.

Thanks Jim, I have a winch I can put on the front of the trailer for pressure from the front. I'll have to get a friend to come over and help me so the wife can keep the kids in the house out of harms way. I may take the front tires/rims off of Arnold so it will roll easier.

I have rolled them off trailers with front flats and had little problem once it got to the down hill side.
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.

Thanks, we have some aluminum ramps that are longer than the ones on the gooseneck and smoother as well that will probably work with the flats. The Cub fits the ramps on the g-neck but it rides right on the edge with them slid all the way in. Don't think I want to crank this one in gear and "try it" to get it off. On wasn't a problem although there was a little pucker factor going on :lol:
