    Re: Trailer fail pics

    From fb today. The good news is they plan on hooking a much larger tractor to it because it's hard to pull.

    Hold on now....I didn't approve the chains and wimpy S hooks....how did that get there....it was perfect before that.

    Bad news is he didn't listen, only made it to the nearest sharp corner.

    I told him to brake, let the weight transfer forward and then turn when the front tires had some grip....didn't listen....

    Maybe a weight distributing hitch next time? It's good to hear the rest of the well engineered setup worked out.

    They needed to turn up the speed on their lathe.
    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    The way those rims are welded together has them wobbling since he didn't get them trued up straight. They are off some, like the guy in the video.

    It always sounded like AYE to me, never was sure HOW it was to be spelled EH.

    Either way it's spelled, you get my drift, right?

    The extreme 4X4 crowd are very proud of their ability to connect 3 car batteries together and glue* a broken [part] back together.

    Yeah, I was waiting for the guy with the "lathe" to hit a knot or something and have that hunk of pipe to come up and smack him in the head.
