Louwo Posted August 18, 2018 Share Posted August 18, 2018 This morning we get a call from our local leo's that there is a DMV needing a trailer to be put back on. Ok, right in front of the shop I arrive see a truck with a chipper on the ground. Grab my jack lift it up see they used the wrong hitch. This truck had a ball and a pintle hook on the rear. Pintle was shut closed. My guess they used the lower ball with some sort of clasp on it that failed. Jacked it up placed it on the pintle and me and the officer agreed let's clear the lane and head to the FD lot. He is crawling to the lot driver said "it no go". I see the breakaway is out (chipper has electric brakes)I put it back in and try to mount the cable to the chassis. Feel the O ring on the chipper is burning hot. I look below to see these pictures. Let's just say the officer wrote a few more tickets besides no tags on it. These days are the days I enjoy doing this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
