At least I got it on the trailer and almost into the shop. The overhead lift in the shop would have been helpful. :bang:

I felt a bump, got out and saw the track starting to tear. I crossed the road and got it on the trailer. It ripped in half just as I unloaded it.

It could have been a lot worse I've helped my buddy change them on site, no fun at all. $3000 for new tracks delivered ASAP :cry:
