By all means put the blocks under the back of the trailer. I busted a spring shackle doing just that. Of course the tractor I was loading was a tad heavier then your cub. My new trailer has down riggers on the back to keep that from happening again so I don't have to carry blocks any more.
That's one good looking tractor!

All things being equal I don't think the duals themselves cost that much power. I have never seen a figure on it in print anywhere, and as common as duals on farm tractors are, I would think it would be talked about more if it was a big issue. IF there is noticable power loss with duals, I expect there are some engine issues he would need to address. If it were me though, I would put all the wheel weights on the inside tires if they would fit.... :wink: That would put less strain on the finals.

I would think with 1200 lbs of weight, or close to that, wheel slip will be mighty close to zero. Might well run out of power well before it runs out of traction, but it should definately put on a good show! :sunning:

From what we could tell, it wasn't the paint that was pullin' that Cub!
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.

having driven that cub down the track the day before the tug , i can say without doubt, the paint ,the motor,the tires ,the AIR in the tires, were pulling on that machine :-:-): . fine looking cub videodoc. i'm not experienced enough to known the "tricks of the trade", but i'd sure give it a run. i'm thinking of a few things to try myself :wink: .coppersmythe...........................................................PS: if that trophy ever got down this far , it may not want to go back up to the frozen north :lol: (not so frozen this year?).

Nope loader going on #4 demo. Freshest one out of the shop. Don't think loader would work with duals and all those weights
