I use a 2001 K1500 1/2 ton for most of my hauling. My last haul was an Allis Chalmers 180. I towed it 360 miles home through two states on the intestate highways. I stopped on a CAT scale and weighed a little over 18,000 gross.

Little 5.3L was barking, but never let down. In a week or two, I will tow my Komatsu trackhoe to a friends camp to put down a septic tank, field line, and water line. That machine weighs right at 10k by itself. 140 miles one-way. Truck and trailer brakes handle it fine. 149,000 on the clock and has only needed a fuel pump at 136,000. Treat it like a 3/4 ton.

Now, the load in question is a bit much for anything less than a dump truck off the bumper. I would not tow that more than across the yard with a 1 ton. Goose, I'd do it with my 1/2 ton.

Nice pictures! :P

This type of "Hillbilly Look What I Did" attitude is the cause of the more stringent regulations on the 10,001 to 26,000 weight class.

That load is pure idiocy! Thankfully no one was hurt.

That's because probably 90% of the miles driven in this country are within 15 miles of home.

I regularly haul my A and 520 on that gooseneck at 10,000 lbs for both tractors + trailer weight. It pulls them pretty good, but you know they are back there. I lose about 5-10 mph on the interstate hills with the turbo putting out about 20 lbs of boost 75% of the time. And on big long hills the boost goes on up and shortly the turbo fan kicks in. I think my problem is the gearing for the 35x12.50x20 tires. I am not sure what it has, but it is either too much or not enough depending on which roads you are on. It wants to run about 2500 rpm in drive at 55 mph in tow haul mode, but not shift into OD until about 63 mph. Makes it a diesel drinker on the 55 mph 2 lane roads. Once I get to about 70 mph on the interstate, it walks on pretty good but takes a little time to get there. Also seems like it has more power once it gets over 60 mph, but getting there is a little slow when pulling a load compared to what I think it should. Most of the time my foot is 3/4 full throttle and on hills I have it on the floor. I have found letting off the pedal and slowly getting back into it seems to help and lets the turbo do more of the work. I think it has the wrong gearing. What is an easy way to see what gearing it has? I don't have the original window sticker that shows it.

I do have a SCT programmer, but don't have it programmed in any mode. It is set to the factory setting. I am afraid to turn up the juice since it is the troubled 6.0 liter. Can't afford to replace the head gaskets. It still has the stock head bolts and egr/oil coolers.

The brakes seem to be fine. The hay load just pushes a little bit. Stopping with the tractors on it is just fine. I have my prodigy p3 set on 6.7v and boost 3 when pulling either.

I love the response, "we've all done it."

As if it's a crime to impart your experience on others in the hopes that they will listen and learn from it....

thats the only time i think i ever put that much round bales on it. i only drive it about 1/2 mile and there was nobady with me or anything. i think the only loads that have compared to that is hauling the skid steer with fertilizer or pulling full loaded hay wagons but iver never had on problems. its a good mostly reliable truck that gets the job done.

And I thought this was a heavy load - 11 rolls. I don't see how in the world that F-150 could hardly pull out of its tracks. Were the bales 5x6 or what? My rolls are 5x6 and it makes my powerstroke scream pulling the hills. Even with good truck and trailer brakes, it still pushes me. I couldn't imagine not having any trailer brakes.

really? it gives your powerstroke an issue?

I recently hauled home 14 5x6 rolls on my gooseneck.

I've got a 99 F450 with the 7.3PSD with a 4.88 rear with a locker...

she didn't even know I had a trailer hitched...

I've pulled 14k behind her.. a full e350 stretch conversion van back on my gooseneck. pulled it down the interstate doing at least max legal speed when a buddy broke down in ga one night. she burned a lil extra diesel... and pyrometer needle pointed straight up.. but that's about it.

in both instances, properly adjusted brake controler ( prodigy ) had no issues assisting stopping the trailer.

you sure your brakes and controller are adjusted correctly?

On your power stroke.. you aren't using a tuning chip are you? perhaps had it set to economy?

Is this a 7.3 or 6.0 PSD

what's your rear end? somthing speedy and weak like a 3.73 or low and strong like a 4.88?

Wow, someone likes to hear from the safety police.

Don't worry, I went into the elevator at 105,000 this morning on 5 axles. Last load of wheat this year, and I made it fit.

. . . resisting the urge to just completely unload on ya, but only if you went on a ppublic road with it. If you only brought it up to the front of the farm from the hayfield, I'll feel a lot better.

I hear ya, and I'm not gonna rant (in part because I think I and others are bein baited a bit . . .), but that's the kinda load, even if I were completely inconsiderate of how I might harm someone else if I lost control of it, I wouldn't move over a road out of fear of killin' MYSELF.

I note that the picture doesn't include the front tires of the pickup. And that's where I think the bait stinks. There can't be enough weight left on the steer axle to properly control a load that heavy. That and no trailer brakes?

I'd pull it like that around the farm, but not over a road.

Lord is that a load for a 1/2 ton. Would not want the law to see that on the road. If it was me driving and got caught, I would be under the jail! I think even with an SMV sign on the back they still would have something to say. But the good thing is the old Ford got-er-done! Bandit
