Thanks guys.
Made the trip there and back safely.

The Cummins got 11.36 MPG with the load and it took 11 hours going down to my sons place in the Madison, Indiana area.

My son and his family are taking their vacation next week up here in northern Michigan.
We loaded his car trailer up on my trailer and I brought it back with me so he can take a load back with him after the vacation is over.
There is also a bigger forklift boom on the trailer that I'm going to put on my forklift.

I got 13.75 MPG with this load and it took 10 hours coming back home.

Thanks for the update Ray and I'm glad you got the first round trip over.

 

How many more will it take to get moved?

I figure 4 more trips.

1 for the rest of the tractors.

1 for all the garage tools and machines.

1 for the forklift.

1 for the house stuff.

Madison is a nice place, they still have some "dirt" roads that provide some nice mild off roading. I do 4x4 offroad rallies with Scenic Road Rallies out of S.E Ind.

 

I bet people look at your big trailer and ask them selves "what is that angled brace for on the side of that trailer?" Good thing we all know :D

The Cummins engine is out of a 1990 Dodge pickup.

I ran 60 on the 131 expressway thru Michigan and 55 on the two lane roads in Indiana.

You pulling with your old Chevy?

 

Madison is where my JD 140H3 came from. I work about 75 miles southeast and live another 45 past that. You should go on across the river so that you don't have to call yourself a hoosier.

 

Welcome ALMOST to the south!
