with the gravity wagons i meant. 55 MPH is speed limit. I was going from farm to another farm so we could put round bales in a different barn. It's out in the middle of nowhere. if someone doesn't know who i was they were either visiting family or they were lost. and the trailer was liscensed with working lights. completely legit. the only thing wrong was i don't have a drivers liscense.

LOL!
but hauling round bale on a gooseneck is way different then pulling a wagon that can easly lose a load on at high speed when loaded

i didn't say i was hauling round bales on it. I would NEVER go that fast with a gravity wagon. I top out at 40 when im pulling one. when im pulling 3 i go down to 25. And i know a guy that used to pull 4 200-400 bushel wagons behind a case 885

Around here i see guys pulling 2 640 Brent wagons full behind tractors, Ive never seen somebody pull 4 200-400 bushel wagons full, ive seen them do it empty, because he didnt want to make to many trips back to his field, I think haveing gravity wagons would be awsome
Brent or J&M or even Demco, about 30 miles from were i live they make Demco wagons and catch carts.

Yes. 2 full is very common but for the big farmer with not a lot of grain trucks 3-4 is the way to go. never seen 8 before. but ive seen 4 full. And i saw this wanna be farm boy who thought he was cool because he was driving a tractor pull into the elovator full speed and slam on the brakes with 3 full wagon. It just folded all three toungues up and the wagons smacked together. Yea the guy that i know who used to pull 4 was going to the elovator one day and city kids rolled about 6 round bales out on the road. The guy just weaved right through them like a train. Laughing

Dumb? thats it? he's a friggin retard, what kinda idiot who is pulling 20 tons in a 7 ton tractor, of that. Is gonna go full speed into a place crowded with people and other machines. imagine if his brakes couldn't handle that and he went straight into the bottom of one of the full, 500,000 bushel silos. mhe would drown in grain. literally.

im not a fan of 12 rows. you have to be confident that there is going to be working machinery and an extra operator there to chase you down with a grain cart. If you have 250 bushel to the acre corn and a 330 bushel grain tank it would take what, 10 minutes to fill up?
