Tuff Torq K71 transaxle rated @ Max axle torque rating of 406 lb.ft  and Max tractor weight capacity of 697lbs

 

I would say that he's pushing his luck lol.The K71 and K72 are pretty stout for a Medium duty transaxle though.

Looked like the truck was just about too much for the trailer too!

I saw he had the air down ion the back tires. That is no way to treat a GT!

If the trailer had a dolly wheel on the front to support the tounge ida tried it, but not with the weight of the truck and trailer on the tractor.

Assuming that truck is a powerstroke thats 1000 lbs just in motor...

     The truck is far enough back on the trailer to minimize tongue weight. I see no way to determine what the tongue weight is from a picture. I would believe it would break traction before exceeding torque limits. A 300 lb man pulling a steep hill is likely just as damaging. But then it is a Lawn tractor. Don
