That load probably did not weigh in at much more then 32-34000 . And depending on what brand RGN that is more then likely a 40 ton capacity . I pulled a Fontaine and it was a 40 ton with two axles and if i pined on the third it was a fifty ton. I know how much work it is to load a load like that. Getting tires off a combine and getting it down on the deck is not a fun job. Unless ya got two good loader with boom poles on them . Building a load of iron is a art , first ya need to build a solid base then start stacking , Disc's make a good base to build on , semi mount plows work but ya really need two of the same kind . Hauling spring tooth harrows are a real pain as they are like loading loose hay and ya can never get them to really set in . Then the fun comes when ya go to unload them as they are now Stuck and tangled into the stuff below . Buying gravity wagons are a lot of fun also to load, first ya have to get them off the gears and start figuring which one will go inside the other one and ya try and stack atleast three then taking off the tires and breaking down the running gears and getting them stuffed into where ever ya can find. I remember the first load of iron i hauled was out of a sale in Fletcher Ohio. Pulled in there with and old Astro and a 48 ft. step deck . This older guy comes up to me and asked what i was after and i handed him the tickets and flat told him this is what i am after and i have NO IDEA on how to load all this JUNK on one load. Old Bill took the tickets and went thru them and said i'll teach ya how to load Iron . Five hours later i had every piece i went after on that trailer , man it sure did look UGLY but it was on there and never moved .
