    Loading/Unloading Safety

    Please place blocks or jackstands under the rear of the trailer if not equipped legs on the ramps:

    Apollo Borough, Pa. – No injuries to report after a Ford 150 towing a trailer loses it’s grip at the wheels on a hill in Apollo Borough Sunday afternoon.PSP Tpr. Hildebrand reported the crash occurred after the Ford 150 was parked at the top of a hill at the intersection of Summit Avenue and 4th Street as the operator, James A Ferrington, age 59 of Avonmore was backing his Kubota tractor off the trailer. The weight shifted causing the truck and trailer to start skidding down the hill. The truck, trailer and tractor went off the roadway and struck a house.
    State Police Kittanning continue their investigation and it was not immediately know if any citations would be filed.

    Wow!! I can see how that totally happened though. If he did not have any kneeler blocks on the rear of the trailer as he backed off, it lifted the rear wheels of that F150 off the ground enough to loose its grip on the roadway and then it was all downhill from there.

    Wheel chocks are also critical, especially loading or unloading on a hill. My trailer has ramp supports that hit the ground, but I still always chock between the trailer tires at least, and occasionally the truck tires as well.

    Seen that this evening on local Pittsburgh channel. Some guys never seem to learn correct way to unload or how or when to chock their wheels.
    Wonder if the operator had to go and change clothes after this happened.. Guessing it was one heck of a ride.

    The fellow that bought my JD425 was backed down our drive. Same thing happened to him , except he was loading his new to him JD425 and for a few inches going up the ramp of trailer it lifted the rear wheels of truck off the ground. As soon as it started moving he backed off the trailer ramp and moved the truck across our drive and yard.

    On my old trailer I had welded jks to the rear of the trailer so this wouldn't happen. So far I haven't but I will do the same for this trailer.

    Yep. Had it happen to me once. The truck and trailer moved about 6-8 feet while I scooted up and onto the trailer deck. And this was on a fairly level surface. Never made that mistake again. I still pucker-up when thinking about that incident almost 30 years ago. It doesn't pay to be in a hurry.
