I decided to see if the Case 224 was up to moving a ton of pellets, to make my life easier, it did!
I usually stack them in a shed that's about 300' away from the house which is a pain when you need them but was the only place that truck could get to. I through about how to get them to the back deck, which is only 10' from the stove, trailer, 224,trailer,224 why not. First picture is with only a few pounds of air in rear tires, not good so I added 10psi for the move.I figure it was about 2400 pounds between the trailer and pellets.

That works!
I have routinely been using my 4 wheel tractors to help move my 4x8 trailer from the front of the house to the rear. The tractor is much more manuverable than my truck. The hardest part is usually getting the trailer off the truck hitch and onto the tractor hitch. When I have a cubic yard of topsoil, I shovel soil towards the back until I can easily pick up the tongue. Then there is a slight slope to the driveway, so I have to make sure I quickly turn the trailer sideways so it doesn't run down the drive, then move it over across the slope to hook to the tractor and off we go.

That looks like quite a load on the trailer. Having a GT around sure is handy. Looks like you have good firm ground to pull it over.

Nice pink trailer. :rolling:

Good job! The amount of weight a good old garden tractor will move would surprise most people.

Did he have any barn siding left? Or was he sold out?

I bet that Case wouldn't pull my trailer with the load I had on there today. Send that thing over here and I'll let you know how it does.

John, My mother-in-law has a pile of freshly split wood in her door yard the size of Delaware. PLEASE DON'T LET HER KNOW HOW WELL CASE TRACTORS HAUL HEAVY LOADS cause I will most like get recruited to haul the pile with my 444.

Great looking rig and just for curiosity sake what are you burning the pellets with?

Ryan, I think the pellets might weigh more than whats left of the car, besides I could've gotten the 446 out if I needed a real tractor :D

Moose, just a cheap Englander stove, does just as good as a job as the big buck ones if you ask me.
I do hvac for a living so I have it tricked out :bigrofl:
