Big Problem!

Big Problem! The semi trailer tipped over in a sinkhole after we unhooked the truck. We had no luck getting it back upright ourselves so we had to bring in payloader. All is well. No major damage and no one was hurt. #FarmOn #BetweenTheRows

    You'll need three, two x six x ten footers. two on the ground next to each other under the feet, and the third 2x6x10 on top of the other two down their middle, where they come together. The plate they use for feet are what 12" x 12" what is the weight per inch on the foot pads? You will need to extend the foot print of the trailer whenever you park it on dirt or gravel. If the feet were say 36" x 36", you would have more area for the weight of the trailer. So use the 2" x 6" x 10' to make the feet bigger. I had to do this when I used to haul doubles, and I had to seperate the trailers.

    Tip the forks to where the forks are just barely touching the concrete taking the weight off the bottom of the forks and you can usually push the over with your foot. And a light coat of grease along the bar will help, my opinion, but what do I know. Enjoying your videos, stay safe.👍👍👍👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    What is the capacity of those tanks? I'm guessing around 2000 gallons. At 8 pounds per gallon you had 16,000 pounds in the nose of that trailer. Trailer itself is probably another 15 to 20,000 pounds. Looks like you had 3 tanks in there. If all those tanks are full, you had over a truckload of weight in the first 24 feet of that trailer. If you plan to leave that loaded, your gonna need steel stands for the front, and ideally a concrete pad for the landing gear and stands.

    We had a driver unhook a loaded water trailer in the yard and the same thing happened. Luckily the yard manager knew the guy the owned a wrecker service really well and he just happened to be driving into town with his brand new heavy duty wrecker and was able to lift it straight up so we could get a truck back under it. We were lucky because of the damage that could have taken place if it had tipped to either side

    You forget that the left front leg of that trailer is down in the earth about 3 feet. The leg has a flat metal foot on it as well that the earth has surrounded, so if you unbolted that left front leg, I think the tractor would be able to lift that trailer up easy-peasy.

    If the crank is holing it up a little bit then take the molene and apply more pressure to the tire and then take the skid steer with the forks on it on then lift the corner up by getting really close to the crank.and then i should come right out of thee hole and you can stabilize it from there.

    Should have called the fire brigade. Would have been good training for them. Edit: Get yourself some rescue bags. They are basically giant “air bags” but they fill up from your exhaust. Obviously you get ones that run off a compressor but the exhaust filled ones are better for in the fields. I’m an ex-Paramedic from the U.K. and I speak from experience that those things work well at lifting container lorries (trucks, semi’s or other U.S. equivalent words/terms/names).

    I sincerely hope you guys take a LOT of care with those chemicals. I know they are not as bad as they used to be. My dad used a lot of organophosphates and DDT going back to the 60s, and he died of non hodgkin's lymphoma when he was just 72. He wore a proper mask when mixing and filling the sprayer, but tractors did not have cabs back then, and the air would have been thick when applying it. He wouldn't let us, his five sons, close to the chemicals, bless his heart. So please take every precaution, and think of yourselves and your families.

    Farmers get big trucks around too. But do they listen to an experience driver theybmight hirecto put some good sized heavy dolly pada under the dollies or have the hwy tractor or set of dollies under the front end. I was previously farming and what did i really know about semi trucks Got my licence knew ver little. Have worked on farms and NO wont drive the trucks fulltime for same wage as farm equip. Get a ticket overweight speedingbetc the farmer doesnt wantvto pay for the ticket. Work for nothing always overloadingvetc. And no they dont want to listen to some one that has lots of exp even logging. Nope i am just a hired hand. A farmer's add for help " if u r smarter than he is dont apply" Really their saying " unless u r dummer than us we dont want you" Needs a crane buddy farmer. Or good sized wrecker truck. 1 403 830 4124 we build equip now new tested protype emergency traction for vehicles. The pay loader only did it because trailer was unloded with the water. No lets try it again "a" Got to love the farmers. Maybe it will only rain all night. Did say its likely over a dug water line. Had a board under dolly leg.

    If you emptied those tanks and that tractor is rated to lift 6000lbs it should not have had problem lifting the nose. I would take the tractor back to the dealer and make them prove to me it will lift 6000lbs. Where i work we have had the landing gear fail on trailers. We just get a lift and lift them up with a forklift.

    Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Romans 10:9-10. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 1John 5: 10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. .............................................
