Loaded TT In Parkes New South Wales (Aus)
Now that's making the TT earn it's keep, wool bales average about 175kg x 14 + the dag bags on the roof, could be about 2-1/2 m/ton.
I am surprised the front tires arn't flat with all those holes drilled through them.
Oh, come on........surely you remember the "run flat" tire commercials from a few years ago.........
Front tires are probably solid rubber.
When I was a kid we used the TT to bring in fruit from the orchard. The ranch used 40 pound fruit boxes. We'd regularly load 7 rows of 4 across and 4 high. 4 X 4 X 7 X 40 pounds each = 4,480 pounds. He'd put the Muncie in under, planetary in low and we go slow, but it did the job.
You ain't overloaded 'til an axle breaks !! ; )
