We had a 1400 lb steer slip on the concrete and crack it's shoulder. By the time we could get anyone around to butcher it on short notice, it began developing a fever - crap. It was obviously unable to stand, so it was put down where it was, which happened to be laying between the exit and the water barrels, so in order to get it out we needed to lift it's front over the barrels. The skid loader was in use elsewhere, so I was summoned with my tractor. Man that 4044M gets BIG in a barn, lol. Just much more tight than I anticipated, as I haven't had the 4044M in the barn yet. Nonetheless we chained the legs and lifted the animal up. When lifting it the tractor definitely felt light in the rear. No problems, just not as grounded as I would like on the awkward angle I was on with the straw bedding. Keep in mind though, all the loaders I have ever driven are a 4020, 4055, and a skidloader, so this may be more normal than I think. Now that the work is done, I am considering rear wheel weights for the future. Thoughts on them? I don't want to increase the width of the tractor, and once on, I don't really want to remove them. Anyone have them that can chime in?
