    nice wheelie

    ok, I got five acres to bush hog so took the MMM off for clearance and for better maneuvering I took the loader off too. turns out the front axle weighs about 20 lbs... anyone remember the little red wagon drag van that would do a 1/4 mile wheelie at 150 mph?? I should mention the Imatch has set it back some. just be aware of your counterweights people.

    I can see why you are doing a wheelie if your axle only weighs 20lbs. Read up in owners manual for ballasting the machine. Under the right conditions and task, you will roll the tractor. Do a search on rollovers on GTT and you will learn very quickly about ballast. Ballast is very cheap compared to repairing equipment or your body.

    LOL, remember The Little Red Wagon well. Saw it run once where they had a bunch of banners strung across the track right past the starting line and just as he came up his front caught them and then carried them streaming behind him all the way to the end.

    I have the same tractor and rotary mower and imatch as you. I bought a Heavy Hitch front receiver weight mount, and use 320lbs of front weights with the loader and MMM both removed. The setup feels pretty good that way.

    The only problem is that with the rotary cutter set to cut at 7.5 inches or higher, the 3 point will not lift the tail wheel off the ground. That isn't related to the weights, however. Just a separate problem.

    Popping a wheelie is actually good warning. If I don't have front weights on when I am using the rotary cutter, I don't notice...until I try to turn. That is when you notice that the front end is a bit light...when the turned wheels don't turn the tractor, but just kind of skip along the ground...

    I have a fairly light rotary cutter, and no quick hitch, so four or five weights on the front is adequate. But necessary.

    I certainly do remember the little red wagon, (VW), Danny Burmer was the owner, he lives in MIllbury Ma and a welder by trade. I used to work with Danny O'day at the drags all over the country and canada and knew Burmer well. You definitely need front ballast before you get into trouble....

    You're thinking of a different Little Red Wagon. I believe the others are referring to this one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_Little_Red_Wagon

    Fun times. I also liked the Hurst Hemi-Under-Glass. Here's a link with both of them together, action around 1:25.

    There must be different vehicles for sure.. Jack and Toby Ehrmantraut both have/had wheel standers and jacks is Hemi Under Glass. Toby had a 55 Chevy. Danny Burmer had the little red wagon which he renamed the chuck wagon, which was a VW and Danny O'day has had multiple vehicles, Danny O'day has the fastest wheel stander on record to date 9 seconds at 151 MPH. And on two wheels,, crazy in my opinion! Sorry for any mix-up on my end... All the Nitro vapors from the National Events must have ruined my senses, even though these guys use alcohol. I have a lot of stories I can tell, from maple Grove to Sanair name it.. Dan asked if I wanted a jet car for me to pilot... AH, no way, can't even fit in one and I also will never drive a wheel stander, way more than just driving down a 1/4 strip! Remember Aggie Hendricks? There a tough gal... And never forget Roger Gustin and the Lava Machine! You meet so many professional people you tend to forget who you met and have known... We've met them all.. It was an awfully fun time plus a lot of work time, especially on a blazing hot engine! Never mind all the chicks that Giz would be after! he did say he was the Chick Magnet! Sorry Giz horsepower is the chick magnet! Never mind all those "wrenches" walking around that make this horsepower happen!!
