Are you sure he is overloaded?

I think the Frontier Tow's 6,500.

That thing on the trailer can't weigh that much.

Look where the machine is situated on the trailer! Bad weight distribution!

If the truck isn't overloaded, I bet the trailer is then. Look at the trailer wheels, if he hits one good bump, he'll be digging the fenders out of the tires. :dizzy:

The bumper isn't looking so hot....!
I hope it's tied down with something there's no gate...

Thats not as bad as what a saw 2 days ago, a f-350 dump that had at least 4-5 yards of sand and it looked like it was about to break. The springs were actually bent the other way and the tires were almost rubbing the dump body.

Sand is heavy!! F-350 dumps are almost pointless. With the GVRW and tare weight, you can barely put anything in the back!

I have also taken some shots of poor loading and overweight "illegal" guys around town. It's really pathetic sometimes. These guys are just waiting to kill someone.

Look at the trailers wood deck it's flexing out the back bottom, That's a stump grinder. The only folks that would defend this crap must be doing the same thing

I wonder if he has something in the bed also? That stumpgrinder only weighs 1550 pounds, and the trailer isn't much at all.

It's mostly due to the distribution on the trailer (like already said). I'd bet money that there isn't the first strap on that grinder. I'm sure he pulled it up and let the head down to keep it from rolling back. Works fine :rolleyes: until he hits something and the grinder bounces up off the floor.

Never ceases to amaze me at the level of stupidity in the world.

You know it, I haul a 8x16 ft Enclosed with my S-10 every day.


So, me asking if he is for sure over weight, means I do the same thing?

8 x 16 with an s-10 4.3??? I've got a 6x12 enclosed with 1 ztr, 1 wb and I figured that would be the max I'd go on the zr2 s-10...How does it really tow an 8x16? Any weight in the trailer?

I was being Sarcastic. I would never do something like that. The biggest I would ever haul with the S-10 is a 6x12. I only tow a 5x10 with it right now.

thats not overloaded.

The front tires arent off the ground yet. Should that be a problem, just toss an 8' western on the front, should keep it nice and level. I dont see the problem??

That's definately a problem here. I never have understood why everyone puts all the weight on the front (making it very tongue heavy).

like other has said.....poor weight distribution, but the reason he put the stump grinder head on the front, is because thats probably whats holding it on the trailer...If you look you can see the cutter hanging over the front rails..

Id venture to say those are the wrong tires for that trailer as well. the sidewall seems really really high...

Maybe they figure they have somewhere to strap it to? lol

I guess the average person would think that way, I forget I was a truck driver and balancing a load was something you just did. Even if I'm hauling only one ZTR I have rings in the floor of the trailer to center it and strap it down.

I'm guilty... when I built my fence a couple years ago and I drove from Home Depot to my house with 26 bags of concrete loaded in my half ton Chevy. Luckily it was only about 2 miles and all down hill.

Years ago in high school I sold pine timber to a local sawmill for spending money. I had an F150 4x4 w/granny 4 speed tranny and a straight 6. I pulled a tandem axle trailer that had bolsters to set logs on where they could be unloaded at the mill. One day I loaded the trailer, got everything chained down and went to get in the truck but soon realized the front truck tires weren't touching the ground. I had to unload a number of logs to regain steering. With that done I was driving through town around 35 mph towards a stop light with plenty of time to stop when the light turned yellow. I geared down and pressed the brakes but that wasn't working so well. I stood on the pedal and locked the front end up but continued skidding at about 10mph half-way through the intersection and finally stopped. I think that was my last load with that rig.:dizzy:

That scrap truck looks like one down the road from me, this guy hauls old skids in it, and once the stack had to be as tall as the f-150 was long, but they weigh next to nothing, so the truck doesnt sit real low, but look out for bridges, maybe if I see him, Ill snap a quick pic.

I saw something similar yesterday but it was a kia suv pulling a large stumpgrinder. the guy was going 45 on the intersate and to top it off he was pulling it on the bumper.
