Or drug, or otherwise used your tractor to move?

It wasnt mine, but my buddy once pulled my 83 F150 (loaded to the gills with dirt) up a pretty steep hill (yes unsafe i know, but we were dumb 17 year olds), on his street with a 79 Sears GT 19.9 with a 19.9hp onan and 3sp trans with a range selector, it made it halfway up the broke traction....

Whats your stories? Or pics?

I pulled my Donzi Z25 with big block Chevys, boat and trailer with fuel weighed about 6500 lbs, with my old 6 h.p. Pennsylvania Panzer, only across the yard and I had my hitch rigged with a dolly under it. It moved it just fine in the low gear pulley.

Probably not the most weight I've pulled but a pretty funny story. My neighbor's tractor wouldn't run so I decided to tow it to my house with my cub 108, I had her get on it and told her to put it in neutral. I got about halfway to my house before I turned around to look and the rear tires on her tractor were locked up and I was just dragging it at wot in 3rd gear like it wasn't back there, the tractor with her on it was probably 600lbs or more but the old cub didn't mind at all.

I jockey my 16' jeep trailer around with my kubota. The only issue I have is keeping the front end down for steering, thank goodness for cutting brakes.

It wasn't mine, but at the tollway garage they hooked up a Gravely L to an Oshkosh snowplow to see if it would move it. Yup it did!

I skidded logs approximately 7' long out of a wooded area with my Massey 16. Kept hanging more weight on the front so I could steer. Never stopped the tractor though.

While back, used a 74 Deere 112 with a 12 kohler to pull my 1/2 ton extended cab chevy to the street. Never had an issue. Friend on mine who was r/r the tranny in it wanted to buy it that evening haha.

I know of some other times that I probably shouldn't share. One of those "good idea at the time" moments.

No doubt that traction and steering are the limiting factors for our GT's. Power is rarely every the problem!

I pulled an 8 wheeled, 53 foot van trailer with a road tractor.  Had just over 40,000 pounds in the trailer plus the weight of the trailer.
