Hauling Hay this weekend!

Well, we had a great weekend haulding hay. It's one of my favorite things to do...

Kind of a light load, really - just wide. I would have stacked a row high as well, but we had 3 of us hauling, so no need. We moved 80 bales in an afternoon, using my father in laws CAT backhoe to load.

The Ford handled the load like a champ! I was running a Spartan Heavy Tow Tune, +40 hp.

Nice load and it appears, from what I can see, that you have a nice trailer for the project. Chris

Thanks Chris!

The trailer gets the job done! I originally bought it to haul my jeep and brother's Land Cruiser to the 4wheeling trails, and for hauling hay - both round and square bales.

My only regret is not stepping up to a dual axle/8 tire setup -- but its been a flawless trailer.

Sounds good -- I'd love to stack another row, but I know the limits of those dang tires on my trailer.
