6.7 hauling round bales

Saw this the other day at work, 6.7 duality hauling 24 round bales, not sure what they weigh but I'm sure it's a lot! Love seeing these 6.7s work!

Those look like smaller round bales, but still... On a single tandom trailer, he is way over on those axles.

It's a dual tandem, and he's overweight on a different axle.

Never seen a dual tandem that only has single wheels. Look at the wheels, they aren't dually style. I'd be overweight on my 25+5 dual tandem deck over with that load

6.7 hauling round bales

Those bales do look smaller, maybe 4' diameter. If they were 5's, it would be a 30' trailer. Doubt they weigh more than 800 lbs each whatever they are, so just under 20,000 lbs not including the trailer. If it is a 24' trailer and there's a course of six bales, then they may be closer to 650 lbs or so, just a guess since I don't make anything as small as a 4 x 4 bale. They don't overhang the sides so that's a good clue as to length. That trailer does look a bit anemic, but hard to tell on a phone.

Anyway, it's a nice load, and these are killer trucks. Hauling around the farm, we would definitely put one more course down the middle. If it were my assistant, he'd squeeze another 12 of em just because he can

Spring is so slow this year, even here in NC we are at least 10 days off of typical grass growth, so lots of cattlemen are buying hay.

I'm selling

This week will change everything. Amazing how much weather like this can affect a farm operation. Two weeks of extra feed can mean thousands in hay costs, depending on the size of a herd.

Thanks for posting. So I could run my mouth about a dang load of hay.

My 4x5s weight 1030-1060 tightly wrapped, so I would say around 750-800lbs sounds about right.

If he's lucky, those are 2 7000# axles, so he's only 5000#+ overweight, just because you can pull it, doesn't mean you can stop it. Get in an accident and the investigators find out you're overweight, it doesn't matter if it wasn't you're fault, they WILL hang you for it.

See this thread. Safety Tip and Be Aware

^ Can't argue with that folks! I do pull over weight twice a year hauling hay, and I am VERY cautious, and on low traffic roads.
