Thread: Creative "trailering"

  1. #1

    Creative "trailering"

    No pickup...no trailer...no lack of ingenuity...

    This is a real photo taken by me (Travis Johnson) from a house in East Thorndike,Maine!! This photo was not photo-shopped together!

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    I'll bet it's enough to really throw the center of gravity out of whack.

    Crazy huh?

    Its hard to say. My sled is a 4 stroke so its quite heavy at 630 pounds. Of course that is dry so add 10 gallons of fuel to it, a gallon of oil and its a pretty soggy machine, and that is BEFORE I climb onto it.

    That sled is pretty small,so its probably around 450-500 pounds.
