for those that don't know what a semi truck and a lowboy trailer looks like..
I do in facet have complete respect for the rest of the forum, I do agree with you there.
I have pulled more than that, without problems before, example:
Urea Ammonium Nitrate 32-0-0 or more commonly known as nitrogen fertilizer has a weight of 11.06 lbs/gallon and the nurse tank being pulled was 1025 gallons =~11,337lbs+ the weight of the trailer and tank itself.
So it can be done. But extreme caution and slow speeds were always used while pulling this to and from the field.
The reason we even considered pulling the grain cart home was cost. It is going to cost $2,000 to have shipped or we could have gone and pulled it home for around $150 round trip in fuel. This was the whole reason we even considered pulling it home.
