Baggin on Valentines Day  

Recommended Posts

Topic Originally Created in February of 2010:


Got a call from my good friend Dustin Rudi needing some help with a loaded rollover. Jason and I grabbed the Air Cushion trailer, dad took the KW and headed out on the hour and 45 min ride to Marmaduke Ark. We arrived to find a loaded 53ft trailer and tractor loaded with 44k of cereal. The roof of the trailer was flat against the side walk the rear doors had shifted on impact and the nose was a little busted up. Dustin had already prepped it to tow away once it was uprighted and had dug holes so we could get the starters under the front. We put a large bag in the center of the trailer on the rear for some lift, then used the started to push the trailer off the side walk to make room to get the large bags under. Once the large bags were under we sucked down the bag in the rear center and moved it to the front. We used Dustin's Pete on the rear and our KW on the front. The unit came up perfect and the load was useable. (camera batteries went dead mid way thru) Dustin and Mike Rudi have been friends of ours for years but this was the first time we have ever had the opportunity together and it was a pleasure. Dustin thanks for the great Valentine's day present, Jason will be your Valentine anyday.  emoticonarhaha.gifemoticonarhaha.gif

 Great looking job guys and even better that you could work together to get it done!!
  Just a suggestion if I may, would be to use some angle iron or even a hard wood at the rail of the trailer. I see it didn't matter here but at some point it could bite you. 
 Thanks for posting the job!

Eric we had angle on the front, the rear  emoticonthud.gifI over looked it. The plus side is the cushions did all the work on this job or that might have bit me in the a%#.
