My Dodge pulling a Peterbilt cattle truck

Postby tncattle » Sat Jun 10, 2017 10:40 pm

We had 40 heifers delivered today, avg. weight 850 lbs a head. The truck sunk down in some wet mulch and wasn't going anywhere. That's me with my 2004 Dodge 2500, 5.9 Cummins with 274K miles--still runs great. The cattle truck was still loaded with the heifers and the driver said he was totaling near 70K lbs. counting cattle, trailer and truck. Of course that Peterbilt helped as I got it moving. But still a neat thing to do and see.

Didn't look like it took much.. just kinda had to get out of a rut.. Good thing you pulled when you did and not after he spun himself down to the axles!

Yeah, before I hooked up to him he was just spinning and going nowhere but you're right it didn't take much--once I got him moving he did the rest.

Iam sure he appreciated the tug , that's all he needed. Ive been to farms so soft, they met me at the gate with a dozer. Sucks having to clean the mud outta your wheels though .

Yes, that was my 9 yr. old daughter and I don't know exactly what she did--I'll ask her.
