I have a tractor conversion, and you all know how low the gear ratio is. It runs good starts good and I get a lot of free starts. Question is if I take it to a show and it gets the idea it don't want to start how am I going to load it? can't pull or push it, the wheel slides. How am I going to get it up a drop tail gate ramp

Good question. I guess the best answer is to get it running again! ;-)

How about wooden planks for the tractor rims to grip on, then winch her up?

Adrian, You are thinking with me. I thought about putting the back wheels on water skis and start winching, may have to tie the wheels to the ski. Now that is going to steal the show.

You might be able to hit your local farm store and buy some cow pads. The are thick rubber and bolt/screw those right to the tail gate to protect it. Just cut them in half; one for each wheel track then use a come along, or winch.

Eugene, as i re-read your original post, what it occurred to me is that you need something slick to pull the tractor up the ramp into the trailer on. What we use in our snowmobile trailers is masonite hardboard screwed to the base plywood floor as the carbide runners eat up the plywood floors when running the sleds up the ramp into the trailer. Masonite is slick and tough enough to allow the sleds to slide up the ramp into the trailer without chewing it up. When it inevitably does need replacement down the road, just use the old sheets as templates and replace only those pieces that need it. It might work for you.

Some scraps of this newer composite flooring might work as well. Jim

You canít pull it with the low pedal half way down?
Take the spark plugs out and hand crank it with the low pedal down hard.
Some years ago at a car show a guy was unloading a Fordson and got the rear wheels down in a low spot, I forget the situation but he spent all afternoon trying to get the fordson started to back it out of the hole the rear wheels were in. I think the front was still on the truck or trailer.
Anyway it was a bad scene.

Pull the spark plugs, put it in low and crank it, might even be able to use high gear,

If your going to slide it i would get a scrap dump truck/trailer bed liner.You could cut strips to cover half the wheel di install a chain on each end and slide either direction.Cheap,Tough,and sipplery.Bud.

I've loaded more than one car using low gear and the starter. Works on modern cars as well.
