I used to run the hayride at a local park. MANY loads per day from the park headquarters back to the corn maze then pick up a load on the far side of the field and take them home. Sometimes with a tractor and sometimes with a team of Belgians. We used an older wood deck modified with bench seats and railings. Rarely more than 15 on a ride. I have also pulled flat racks loaded with a lot of hay up and down hills with tractors as small as a Farmall B. With good ag tires and intelligent driving they can easily do it. It is unlikely that those people outweighed my hay loads. What I am seeing is operator error. Either too much speed or turning where/when he shouldn't.....or both.

That's the way I see it. When the trailer started going around the tractor, the tongue road up the up the rear tire flipping the trailer as you see it.
