About 10 years ago couple of freinds and I decided to go pick up one of my latest aquisitions in my quest to buy tractors and fix them up . We decided to hook up the pickup to the trailer (1993 Ford F250 and a 30" Titan trailer) a little overkill to pickup a Farmall M parts tractor. We got all hooked up and the owner of the pickup forgot to pin his hide a ball hitch in place . Drove five miles to town and on the way through town decided to pick up my other friends skid loader to help load the tractor since it did not have any tires on it . Well here comes the funny part . I go get the skid loader out of the shed and check it over while the other two get the ramps down and chains ready. Iget the skid loader to the trailer and we decide to back it on . I started backing it up the ramps . I got the back wheels of the skid loader up and over the dovetail and low and behold the skid loader feels like it is going to flip over forward. The further I got up the trailer the farther over the skid loader went. they finally stopped me after I had the square tube with the ball 2" out of the hole in the pickup . For some reason I did not panic and stopped . I told the them to put it in the hole as I slowly went off the trailer. I could not believe it they got the tube in place . The trailer went straight up and came back down straight . Once it was down the friend with the pickup and trailer locked the pin in place. I loaded the skid loader and they chained it down. I was never so glad to get out of a machine in my life. Needless to say I have never forqot this episode and I now always check to make sure the ball is locked in place. I sit back and laugh and to this day I cant believe how lucky we were and to think what could of happened. LOL. P.S. The rest of the day was uneventful, got the tractor loaded and home.
