I would be scared it might come off, but you can't do much with the y handle either.

I drove around for 14 hours some on the highway and it never came close to coming off though above 40mph the handle starts to bang around just a bit so I am going to figure a way to secures that

All the snow melted so we did a little job here yesterday-regraveled a driveway for a condo association. It was right about 20tons and had to do it all with the dump because it was back a tight alley with trees and low telephone lines where even a 10ton dump probably wouldn't fit.


Before we blew all the leaves out then graveled after that:

We could tailgate some of it but still needed to spread some by hand The dump didnt tailgate perfectly and there were alot of lines and tree branches we had to work around

So much for that being a 1-ton dump haha. Did you use the bobcat at all for that job?

No We tailgating and spread it all by hand it was easier than bring the bobcat at least for this one had I been able to get a triaxle back there I would have done that and just brought the bobcat there.

I got a video of it it wast perfect we only got it to flow good like 3 times. had alot of little piles here and there and the first time we had the gate open too much and it came out too fast. It would jam up every so often and some parts wouldn't flow. Definitely takes alot of practice and a good spotter.

spreading with the tractor is easy its just the time to load the tractor and take it to the job. Tailgating takes some practice thats for sure.

...and i thought tailgating was when someone is riding behind you on the road about 20ft or less behind you.
