Its the wrong trailer for the job.
I don’t what happened to the truck, but I bet the vinyl on the seat was deformed and also the underbritches needed a power washin’ .The 'p' on the tranny is to put IT in 'park', as in 'not in use', it's NOT a 'PARKING BRAKE' for the truck.
Trailer is fine for hauling that tractor, gate/ramp looks like it has steel to support the tires.
yes, chocks would be nice
yes, blocks/jacks would be nice
could have pulled the breakaway, then trailer brakes would be on.
wonder what damage was done to the pickup ??
I don’t believe a utility trailer with a landscaping/beaver tail gate is really meant for a tractor that size.
Yep…to be fair I’ve never found any sort of description or industry standard for trailer towing ratings or even for non commercial truck towing standards. Because something says it can hold or tow it doesn’t it mean it is a good idea or that it leaves any margin of error for SWLL…buyer/user beware as far as I can tell. All trailers within a specific weight rating are not built equal or thats for sure.Did you notice how the trailer bowed when he got up on it? Not adequate.
That's what it's called? I always call it the Drift Stick.Start by getting in the habit of using hour PARKING BRAKE when you are PARKING.
It's not an "emergency brake". It's for PARKING, and if people would stop using that incorrect and STUPID term, "emergency brake", there would be a lot more people using their PARKING BRAKE and a lot fewer vehicles rolling away.
Not at all disagreeing with the good practice of using chocks when loading equipment, but it's always a good idea to start with Step 1.
