    We were a man short on the farm this evening so I opted to use my truck to pull the hay wagons to the barn this evening.

    We only worked one small field tonight, so only 6 wagons total for the evening.

    Each wagon has 14 round bales of Timothy hay. Each bales weigh approximately 700 lbs. The one in the picture was the last wagon for the evening, and the last bale to be made was much larger than most. I'd bet it weighed 900lbs.

    All together, 14 round bales at 700lbs/each = 9800lbs for each wagon. The last wagon weighed close to 10,000lbs. Not including the weight of the wagon itself.

    So, not a bad evening of hauling for the Tacoma!

    Best looking farm truck around I think! The Toytec suspension didn't even sag!

    Sorry for the poor cell phone picture...

    Haha, nice! We pile all our hay in the back of a 91 3/4 ton sierra, and on the spreader towed by the tractor, but we've a pretty small field, and we bale light bales, just a hobby farm.

    Were you joking about the suspension sag?:confused: Looks like all weight is on the wagon.

    Nice pic! I'd have to agree, here's mine on the farm, just a glamour shot though, I've got a Ford that's serves as the farm truck!

    A couple wagons were loaded in the lower field, and had to be pulled up a hill to the barn. It needed 4wd to pull up the hill for traction, but no real problems pulling.

    I used the farm truck tonight with pulling the wagons because we were loading them in a barn on another farm, about 4 miles from the hay field. Pulling it isn't the problem for the Toyota, stopping all that weight is. The farm truck is a Ford 460 F-350 with a stake-body, and it didn't pull much better than my Tacoma, but the brakes are much larger.

    No, this is actually easy on the rear, not too much throttle involved.

    This is hard on the clutch though, and with 96K miles on it, I'll be easy on it!

    This guy used to live a little south of me. This is how he justified his rear TSB to the dealer. I lost track of him after he lost his job.

    If your 7.5L 460 didnt pull much better than your 4.0L, it aint runnin right. My 92' F-350 460 is a power house, a 350 chevy dont compare to a 460 let alone a 4.0L.
