Cool pic of a 7.3 towing

Ran across this at a truck stop. I know its probably not that heavy but it sure looks impressive. Plus we have 50+ mph winds today and that thing has to be a nightmare on the interstate.

50+ winds?? Yowser - I'm surprised he's attempting to get that down the road. Towing that is like towing a billboard down the highway!!

Actually, those tanks are heavier than you'd think. The plastic has to be pretty thick to take the pressure of the liquid inside it. I know ours are pretty heavy...the bottoms on them are about an inch or so thick.

Awesome picture, by the way and yea, that thing would be a bear to pull through 50 mph winds.

There's one for y'all. I could have loaded one more if the trailer wasn't so low decked

EDIT...that was 9 round bales and the trailer's tongue scraped the road when I pulled out of the field, luckily I only had to take it a mile or so
