Thanks for the compliments guys, there were a few sketchy moments trying to winch a fully loaded trailer onto the back of my truck but the trailer is nowhere near road worthy so that was the only real option, especially since my big trailer was loaded with stuff headed to ND (where I'm running towards today). The seller had his doubts that I'd get it all to fit but willingly helped me out anyways, he was a great guy to deal with. I guess playing Tetris as a teenager is paying off
Sorry grumpy, by the time my friend was able to make it over to help unload it was pitch black dark and about 6 degrees without the wind so no pics of the unload but I'll describe it and let you all use your imagination about the redneck activities that went on...
I have a set of 11 foot long, ridiculously heavy duty ramps that I hooked on the back of the truck, he then backed his pickup halfway up the ramps where we fought for a bit to hook the trailer to his hitch. The tongue was too heavy to man-handle so with some help from a hi-lift jack (also know as a farm jack among other things) perched on my truck's rear step I was able to carefully lower the tongue and get it hooked to his truck. Then we carefully drove it right down to the ground and backed it into my garage, easy peasy lol.
I'll have to start a separate thread about the tractor but now I have a 782 that came with 2 snowblowers, a mower deck, tire chains and weights, a (poorly made) homemade cab, a Trac vac system, a few boxes of parts and a snowmobile trailer... I'm running out of room!
