FIFYSo what is annoying with this type of showing off is that most folks only have a Class C license that has a Gross Combined Weight of 26000#. The truck weighs over 8000#, that trailer is probably about
#4000#8000+, then if we use the low estimate of 650#/bale with 32 bales the cargo is 20,800# so the total is 36800#. Using the high estimate the total is nearly 42000#. Then you can see that the load was over width with no signage.
In nearly any other circumstance I would never want the government involved in anything but I have advocated for a Towing Endorsement on driver's licenses for a long time. Everyone that wants to tow something should learn all about towing capacities, loading, weight distribution, weight limits, licensing requirements, etc. Most of these 1-ton trucks can handle more than most people have licenses for. It is a dangerous game. I see improper equipment and overweight trailers all the time. My favorite ones to stay away from are pretty much anyone towing a large 5th wheel camper; I have witnessed so many highway tire blowouts on those that I lost count.
