Did some light work today :)

Towed the tractor 240 miles today, F150 treated me pretty well, tranny temps didn't break 165F, granted it was only 65F today and I only probably drove about 60-65mph I was in no hurry.

Just because it weights alot doesn't mean theres going to be alot of tongue weight. Its called proper load balance which alot of people don't understand. Even when pulling the snowmobiles inches makes all the difference. Trailer was all over the road move the sleds ahead each an inch and we where good to go...
