"CHinNY", I agree with you on tracked equipment. I have a rubber tracked Komatsu excavator that I load onto my flatbed goose neck. I have 8' long ramps. It can be hairy! I'd like to dovetail the trailer one day.

I have no clue what this guy was doing but the safest way to load is backing on and driving off. I 've beening doing this over 40 years and have seen it all and have had some scary moments my self as i load mostly track machines back them on drive them off safest way> line them up and commit and don't stop haft way.

I just assumed he may have been trying to load w/o ramps. I have seen people back up to the trailer and use the back tires to "climb" onto the trailer deck. Then the tractor pulls the front tires on. Seems the tractor in question was on steel wheels or steel with flat rubber belting.

How do you get 3 tractors on a trailer with out backing one one and running the second one past the first one a little? Been backing tractors on for 30 years with no problems. Even when hauling them on a semi trailer.

Safe to say If you had told the fool 2 minutes before the wreck he should try something else. You would have been cursed out and told to mind your own business. Mother Nature missed her chance to improve the gene pool that day.

Sounds like the guy did not have/use ramps. The key was "backing on the trailer." I have seen this and would NEVER do this. It is dangerous and hard on tires.

Wet tires or wet trailer deck or non running tractor is the main reason I have a winch on my trailer. any time the tires start spinning on the ramp or deck the winch is used. that man was lucky this time.
