I don't get how that works. If you steer the tractor to the right, the trailer goes to the left.

Do you just use it in reverse?

This summer is the first time I tried that with a hay wagon. It is definitely an art. It may take me a couple summers but I will figure it out!

Driving it "forward" takes about two tries to figure out - it comes pretty naturally. It's easier than backing a pickup with a single axle trailer, in fact.

In the pic, I'm driving the tractor in reverse to pull the loaded rack out of the field, but once I got to the barn, I drove it 'forward' into the shed to unload. Biggest challenge there was not being able to see around the load, which necessitated a few stops to hop off and make sure I was centered up on the door.

You drive forward or in reverse if you have a significant distance. Naturally you do not drive forward on the road, but if you want an easy and simple way to position a trailer that is the way to do it. You drive slow and comes easy and natural.

Thanks. It is a simple gin-pole setup, just a two-speed winch and a drive shaft with no fancy hydraulics.... and it works great.

I would like to make a similar lift system on one of my firewood trailers . I believe I even have a winch here to use. As far as
backing up hitched to front bumper, I have been backing wagon loads of hay in that way for years. I have had people stop and watch,
they must think it is a lot harder to do than it is.
