PostSubject: Does anyone haul a seperate tractor with another?   Thu Feb 25, 2010 8:38 pm

When going muddin,sometimes I tow one of my rigs on my trailer incase I need to pull myself out (if a freinds not with me) or incase I break something and I have to load it up and haul er home.
Any of you guys do that?
It comes in handy.
I haven't been able to do it since my 17HP Briggs started leaking oil faster than I can pour it in,cause of a bad base gasket.
Soon I'll be back at it because I'll have the new gasket in the mail.

It sounds like a good idea- specially if youre some distance from home- hate to be pushing a broken tractor home.

Back north i just had the one mudding tractor, and it was down in the field behind thier house- wasnt too far to push home. When i got it stuck ( a few times) - i hopped off in the mud n pushed it out with it in gear.

Bring a friend and a piece of chain! My friend's mtd blew a belt and I had no chain or rope, so we used the old MTD belt. I towed his machine with him riding it, and one of the front tires had sized up on it, with my tractor in 3rd gear for about a half mile. It was intresting to say the least, it streched out my belt a little bit. Rolling Eyes

I usually used to go mudding with someone else there. My almost stock machien would get stuck so easily anyway, and I used to drive it into stupid areas that I knew it wouldn't have a chance. That's why a rear mounted winch is useful. It's on my shopping list.

I've towed tractors using old mower belts before, they can take some strain to say the least!

I've always fancied making a recovery mower, with big tyres and large bumpers front and back to push stuff with. An all round machine that would be used for towing junk tractors too.

Few years back i had to tow pops mower up from the field after he blew up the motor - didnt have rope- chain he had was too long n heavy- so i used a ratchet strap to tow it back to the shed- worked pretty good.
