I have to second the pallet trick. As long as you go slow it works every time.
I never thought of driving out. I've always tied it to the mower but I don't always have a mower with me. Thats an awesome tip. Thanks!
How much weight can you do this with if it's in the trailer. I know it must depend on the ground and traction, but on dirt with a 4x4 how much do you think you could pull out? How much with a 4x2?
I know this is an old thread, but I have the 20 hp Billy Goat trailer mount loader, and it packs those leaves in their so tight that I dont think any of those options would work. I tried turning the loader around, and the leaves were so tight, that it could not budge them.
I did it last year like that, and I am trying to outfit my dump trailer this year.
you guys might make fun but when i was in high school me and a buddy took a job building a retaining wall. i excavated the back and hauled of the extra dirt and he built the wall
well it was a driveway from hell, about 300 feet long stright up hill (really steep). well i didn't have a dump truck so i took a sheet of 3/4 plywood and screwed 3 landscape timbers to the bottom of it and made a sled. i drilled holes in the end of the timbers and hooked a chain in there. well when we got it loaded i would take it to a friends house(on a farm) and i would back down a hill and hook the chain to a hill and pull up ontill the sled was touching the ground but still had the front on the back bumper of the truck then i would back up and it would flip the sled over the pile so i didn't have to dig it out. worked really well i think we hauled 15-20 loads like that.
oh the good ole days when i could pull stuff like that and didn't get weird looks from customers
I have seen those Loadhandler things before and seriously considered buying one. I was just afraid they were one of those As Seen ON TV Gimmicks. May need to rethink that one now that I've actually heard from someone who has used one!
I have a Load Handler......I bought it to bring topsoil home for filling in along my new driveway. I have unloaded 6-7, 3000lbs+, loads of dirt without any issues. It works great..... It is not a tool I will use alot, but it very functional....
My next load will be firewood....
