Never again

At the end of the day today...I went to feed, but felt a little too lazy to make about 4 trips with the tractor...so I got my dad's F450 out and loaded three 4X4X8 squares bales...that wasn't too smart...had one hanging off the back behind held up by nothin but the hyrda arms ...and they weigh around 2200# each...and also filled the hyrda feeder up on the truck, which has about a 2000# capacity...and it weighs around 500# itself...plus twenty five 50 pound bags of 18% calf grower...

So added up...that's about....10350#...not including the extra weight the hyrda bed itself anyways...all on them 4 back tires...I thought the tires were gonna explode ...and stopping it was sure a challenger...I didn't even think I was going to make it the 1 mile I had to drive going down the road...but the ol' Ford pulled through for me

...but...like the name of the threads says...i'll never do it again...it wasn't one of the smartest things i've ever done...haha...and i'm sure the truck didn't appreciate it at all

Wow .... how much weight is that thing supposed to be loaded with? I think the weight wasn't too big a deal - just the distribution??

Wow.. that would be quite a load....

I think after hauling all that, I'd look my truck over very closely. Check for bent tubes, damaged springs, etc.

it'll be alright...it's just a farmtruck...hell that trucks been slid into the manure pit before (thank God it was a cold day so it didn't sink down very far "...I did check the rear springs though...cause I don't want that bed gettin messed up...that bed is worth more than my whole truck...my dad's just waitin for that 450 to break down so he can get a different one I think
