Interesting towing video - tongue weight
« on: December 31, 2018, 03:00:49 PM »
Some folks learn this the hard way:

Woodmizer LT40HDG25 / Stihl 066 alaskan
lots of dull bands and chains

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.

Yup, and I'd like to see a longer video showing what happens with other various load positions with the axle in the proper spot - front heavy, side heavy, right on the axle, shifting.

Very good demo, to be sure BUT the axel on that model is about dead centre which is much less than ideal as well. 

I'd like to see the whole lot of common loading foibles shown with that model system. BUT the tow vehicle, trailer and hitching systems models would need to be to scale to be realistic.

Does anyone know the approximate tongue weight of an empty 53' cargo trailer?
