Due to my short sightedness and lack of time when my 1025R package was delivered last month, my rototiller is still loaded at the front of my Big Tex 18' trailer, with the box blade immediately behind it.
I installed Ken's bolt-on hooks on the bucket and have contemplated trying to lift them off with straps but haven't convinced myself that it would work due to weight on the front end without a ballast box or if it would even lift high enough to clear the side rails.
A normal person who buys an 18' trailer would have a vehicle big enough to hook up to the hitch and safely drive the 1025R up on the trailer to do so. I'm currently in need of a vehicle that will tow a trailer that size, and I don't trust my 2001 Wrangler to keep the tongue on the bumper hitch when I drive up on the trailer.
The self appointed chairwoman of the implement appropriation committee questioned why I wanted a trailer that big before I bought HER a tractor for Valentine's Day. I gave her a clever and convincing answer that worked at the time. Six weeks later she wonders why we have a trailer in the driveway with a rototiller on it instead of tilling up a garden plot.
Suggestions, ideas, laughter or sarcasm? I'm new here but I can take it
