That photo has been floating around the net for six years!

I had a high school shop/driver's ed teacher that also farmed. He would haul his 4020LP tractor back and fourth between his two farms rather than driving it several miles. He used a trailer that was a shop class welding project. The trailer had badly sagging axles with non working lights. Never once did I see him tie that tractor down.

I see tractors all the time tied down to prevent them from falling off the back bot nothing to stop them from going forward. Maybe it's time you have to get trailer added to your drivers license. I've taught
my family to watch trucks and trailers on how they are loaded.

That one was tied down with five inch straps instead of 1/4" chains. The strap whipped off so it is out of the picture.

I'm certain most tractors being hauled are left in gear with brakes locked and are chained/strapped down to prevent most forward/backward movement. Of course there will always be those who have no regard for safe anything that can be a long list.

mdross, tractors should NEVER be left in gear on a trailer. One regular poster here has had tractors start themselves many times on trailers due to movement when braking. It has never happened to anyone I know but no one here would tell a story would they?

I personally have never seen a tractor
that could be pull started in 1st gear
or reverse. Parking in high gear is
not real good idea. On trailer or the
ground.

I never leave mine in gear in the trailer. Never had one start, but my experience came from hauling race cars. Put it in gear and it would chuck enough on the ring and pinion to weaken the teeth and wind up breaking them when you didn't want it to.

If you tie it down right it will never move enough to
take up the backlash in the gears let alone start.
Not only that how will it start with the ignition turned
off ?

I agree with you SV. But no one here would tell a story would they?

Here's a story. Nothing to do with this but, was back in 67 or 68 I pulled into a place I had to unload or load and a GMC tractor and trailer was parked against a big post across the parking lot. I found out that the fork lift went into the trailer and either stopped or backed up quick and the truck fired off driving into the post with the fork lift in the trailer yet. This trailer didn't have the spring brakes and wasn't chucked. Also I don't think the stop cable wasn't pulled up all the way on the fuel shut off. They didn't have a key shut off. It don't take much to make a two stroke fire off.

J Wondergem, I was present once when a Jimmy took off upon first start after some major work. The shut-off, which was manual, was pulled but the cable came with it. Then a set of coveralls which was nearby was balled up and stuffed into the air intake which was open. That shut it down.
