The Astro works like a dream to pull the big hay bales! These are 1300lb bales and it takes them off trailer and skids them around like a dream.

Hey, good to see you out there...
Did not think I would see anyone else doing that besides US in Ky using a RWD, too

More Pics - keep us posted - what hitch are you using. Are your rolls dry. so many Qs

:banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:


I am so tired of 'Periods' - formally ending sentences is so overated / overrated / 'Z'
.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... “May be hard to believe... President Trump should rest easy and concede what was in fact a foregone conclusion: Another OLD MAN won with only about 50% of the Change Believers/Fools showing up."

Yes, a rwd astro. Just the original hitch which was on the van, no label or id. I'm using a Reese 7000lb ball mount with 4 3/4 ton screw shackle through the ball hole attached to 4 inch 20,000lb tow strap/s. Just the towing stuff I had around and all well over rated for the bales.

And sorry, yes the bales are completely dry. They are big bales and average 1300lb dry weight.
