One of Dad's friends flipped a Ford over on himself dragging a log attached to the seat bracket. We should all know, don't do that.

I never had any problem with traction backing with a log chained to the FEL, but it was a CaseIH 385 with loaded tires, a lot heavier tractor than the poster is asking about.
