Have to share one of my latest pulling stories. I went 100miles to pick up a couple of augers, a 10x41 and a 8x51, we have a hitch that bolts on the axle of the first auger and pull the second behind. Hooked them up just like the distributor said the way they haaul them all the time. Other than being prettylong ang wide on the corners all was good. the roads are getting pretty rough but not too bad until I hit dip in the road.They pull at 40-50 mph. Well anyway I hit the dip and thought it felt funny and look back and see my augers following me but not as close. they were scooting down the road on their own right straight behind me.I thought for a moment " I"m going to have to call my boss and tell him I just wrecked two new augers." They stayed on the road probably 400 yards then headed for the ditch full of snow. All I could see was a cloud of white thought for sure they would flip. Back up down the road to them and they were upright and intact. At least a half dozen cars went by untill a older farmer stopped, by this time I had the hitcth of the front one pulled back on the road with a chain. He helped me rehook it to the truck, pulled them up threw the snow banks all were OK. Pulled them the next 40 miles with no problems. THe hith pin was still in the hole of the first auger it just destroyed the keepr clip flat and sucked it right through the drawbar on the pick up. Wrapped chain all around it after that. Have hauled several more like that since with no problems..
