Old Cat Being Loaded

Recommended Posts

My dad for years hauled his 1959 D6 B model on a tilt bed trailer pulled by a 1961 corn binder with a big gas V8. He was a master at feathering that cat just enough to gently set the tilt bed down. 

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

Yeah, you always looked for the balance point, and then eased the blade down.  That would generally shift enough weight to cause her to ease down over the break-over point.  If you didn't, she was likely to come down hard, and then bad things could happen!  Definitely took a light touch.  Made you feel good when you did it right, though.
