Today at the MN State Fair we held our annual FFA Tractor Driving Contest. I had three students in the event which includes a written test, safety check, pulling/backing a 2-wheel trailer through a course, and backing up a 4-wheel wagon. Thought you might enjoy some pics. They used new Kubotas supplied from a local dealer - basically overgrown garden tractors so I thought it would be applicable. I got to "make things wrong" with one of the tractors and the kids had to identify the safety hazards.

Must be a Kubota dealership near by.:D I bet it was interesting watching them learn to back up a 4 wheel wagon,I bet it took me a week when I first learned to back up a 4 wheel wagon with steering front wheels,and be able to put it where I wanted it.

Haven't backed up a 4 wheel trailer that way in 20 years. I remember doing the same thing in 4-H tho... I kept trying to oversteer the new trailer because I was still compensating for the slop in the trailer I practiced with.
