If you want to worship such an *ss as a hero, go right ahead.

And what kind of stupid $ss comment is that...I've been around here for years and you seem to be the internet know it all..

I'll guarantee you the guy with the M Farmall kept everything in excellent shape..Hes a good mechanic and all his stuff is kept immaculate...

Does everyone need a semi to haul a small tractor..I go to lots of antique tractor pulls and shows and I often see 1/2 ton pickups pulling lighter tractors on car trailers..None of these guys have ever caused a wreck.

Many years ago I went all over the midwest with a C-10 Chevy pulling a 7K car trailer hauling 3000-4000 lb loads with no problems..

The worst wreck around here was a crew cab dually pulling a tandem axle gooseneck..He was running over 80 mph passing going up a hill and killed 2 people..

Second time you have mentioned the Crew Cab dually as the problem. How could a truck with superior steering, higher load carrying capacity. Inherently more stable and having more/better brakes be at fault? Sounds like jealousy from a 1/2 ton owner. Tell me again how being careful compensates for equipment stressed to max? And how you can always avoid pushing equipment past the narrow safety margin you operate under?

A vehicle is only as good as its driver...A driver with a barely adequate tow vehicle thats knows his limits is far superior to an idiot with a more than adequate tow vehicle that doesnt know his limits..I see them running 80 mph all the time....Anything with electric brakes isnt going to stop that quickly.

For your information I haul a 6000 lb state level pulling tractor on a 14K gooseneck pulled by a crew cab dually..We just finished up a fresh engine for the puller this evening..I still only go 55-60 mph on a 4 lane thats not heavily traveled...The fuel mileage is better and I dont have to worry about getting it stopped quickly..

Once upon a time I didnt have the money and pulled bumper hitch trailers with 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton pickups...I was very careful and had absolutely no problems..I pulled a 7K car hauler and also a 20 ft 3 axle 10K trailer for 30 years with no problems..Never once did I have to lock them down..

This area has had several fatalities lately involving semis that werent paying attention to their driving..

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Are you kidding? He is telling you that the safest equipment in the world is still a deathtrap with an idiot behind the wheel.
I would rather take my chances against a guy that knew what he was ooing with a S-10 pulling a trailer, rather than an idiot with a proper sized truck.

I do have a crew cab dually diesel, and generally I am driving 60 mph on the interstate in a 70 mph zone. Not because my truck can't handle it, but my pocketbook can't. That 10mph is the difference between 8 mpg and 11 mpg.

Well duh...........Do you think I was endorsing a fool behind the wheel of a dually gooseneck 10,000lb? And finding fault with a cautious driver in any vehicle?

Yes I did think that. After all, you called the guy who hauled a 4500 lb tractor on a 7000 lb trailer with a 1/2 ton for 30 years an A**!

I typically haul a 5000 lb tractor and a 2 bottom plow on a 16' 12,000 lb bumper pull. The catch is I am pulling it on a 15" receiver extension because I have a 4000 lb, 9 1/2' camper in the box of the truck. Any names you want to call me?

Overly optimistic if the truck is a 1/2 ton.

Say or print OMG and what do 99% of the population think you said ? As for *ss ? That is a very common, non swearing name for a dim witted hooved animal with big ears.

That's OK. He's probably used to it.
