Hello, I have been trailering heavy equipment for a few years now. I have not have an incident yet. Yet. I just upgraded from a 770 to a 3039r cab tractor. I have an 18' 10k trailer that I use.
My question is: tow tractor forward facing or rear facing?? I always did it forward facing, but I read my owners manual for the 3039r, yes I read that thing, and according to Deere you are supposed to tow it backwards due to the possibility of the hood coming open. So I towed it home last night backwards. I HATED IT, I like towing it forward better. And for the smarties out here, I did not drive the truck backwards, I loaded the tractor on the trailer backwards!
What are your thoughts on this? I did a quick search here on the forums, and couldn't seem to find anyone backwards towing.
Also I would like to see where everyone puts their chains on the tractor when they tie them down, so post pictures on this one please. I just want to make sure I am doing it right and fix any problems now, before it becomes an issue.
