On a good note he did balance it pretty good over the axles. The F150 isn't even squatting in the rear.

that guy has a set of balls on him! when i used to work for my dads rental business, i would tow skidsteers and mini excavators with a gmc 1500 and it was hard to stop sometimes with those on the trailer. i wouldnt even risk it with that on the back!

Just out of curiosity, it looks like the boom is in the fully retracted position. I don't know the height of the trailer or the retracted boom but I know when I move my case if I were to do that it would be close to 14 feet. Also, notice the front bucket is not on the deck and strapped down. I would also assume since the boom is up the rear bucket is not tied down. I feel like if I were to do this with my dump truck and trailer I would be sitting with the dot having a long talk about proper tie downs. It drives me crazy that they don't go after people like this. That tiny truck and huge trailer scream pull me over....

That would be funny, and he was driving slow and braking really earlier by the time the light down the road turned red

I'll put myself out on a limb.
This is what I was hoping to move around although only sparingly.
The trailer can take another thousand pounds but I suspect the truck is over it's limit.
No equalizer but it does have electric brakes on both axles.

Evidence has been removed to protect the guilty:rolleyes:......lol

Does that guy have the backhoe binded down in the back?
It's hard to see, I can't tell.

I looked at it really close and i think he has one chain on the rear right side

Yeah his truck is under 10k so they cant touch him. I just want to take a piss on a dot officer.

I sent a guy to pick up a bobcat across state lines and got a ticket for not having a log book.

No big deal? Does not make it wrong? Tell that to the person who this moron could very easily end up rear ending. The Deere weighs just under 13,000 lbs empty. With the weight of the trailer he's easily 2x what ford says he can tow.

If you look real close you can see a chain attached to the trailer rail just in front of the front tire, and what looks like a binder infront of the tire. In the back you can also see a chain but when I looked real close you can see that it is just to hold the ramp up.

My understanding is that while the truck may be under 10k, you must also take in the weight of the trailer and load which is well over 10k. Whether or not it is legal as far as a ticket goes he would be screwed if he rearends someone as he is clearly over the trucks towing/stopping capacity.

I know for a fact that a Ford F150 IS NOT rated for anything over 11,500 pounds, there is no way in hell that TLB weighs under that, they have to be at leat 15,000 pounds.

Its a crew cab, their rated around at around 8000 max I believe. Its got two tone paint so it may be a limited which is rated closer to only 5k. As far as the weight of the Deere, the spec sheet on the 310e is 12,800 lbs empty.

Both buckets up and the trailer loaded to its max capacity being pulled by a 1/2 ton truck. Trailer has 2 7k axles and weights close to 4k empty plus the 13k tractor. Where is the DOT when they need to be out issuing tickets?

They prefer to kick business owners in the balls. That is their specialty. I have one of my guys picking up a 800 lb attachment in my tacoma this weekend. I would send a 2500, but everytime we go out of state we get some bs ticket in a big truck.

Here they'll keep you on the side of the road searching until they find something to ticket for. I know a guy who owns an oil company, he hides the reflective warning triangles on the truck. If a truck gets pulled over it is more cost effective for him to have it sit for a quick inspection/weigh and get a $250 ticket than it is for him to have the truck sitting idle for two hours while they search for something wrong.

another load that i saw years ago was a guy was hauling a brush hog, only he didn't have it on a trailer, he had tied the 3pt. hitch to the tailgate with what looked like haybale twine

at least its balanced on the trailer.. Can't have to much tongue weight.. ;)

Balance?? They wedged 2-6x6's between the axle and frame rails of the truck so it didn't squat. When they unload it halfway down the ramp the truck lifts off the ground allowing them to remove the 6x6's. They would have been better off putting the truck on the trailer and towng it with the hoe!

Thats a neat trick, sounds like you've done it before

He was more or less, he was a ways back from anybody driving infront of him, but he also wasn't doing 20, id say prob 45
