Uh, who stole your track?
Mother nature, father time, and the sun...
They were original and 18 years old. The right one split and walked off while I was digging a pair of pine stumps. When I was limping back to the trailer, I saw the left one is split too. It's looking like a full undercarriage rebuild is in my future. 2 idlers, 2 tracks, 2 sprockets, and 10 rollers. Something like 5600 bucks.
Gotcha. And every big tilt trailer I've ever used had a big winch at the front, so I'd still contest that a tilt would have been easier to load.
I can't fathom how a winch could have helped me at all. The front idler is only held in by the track, so there's nothing for that side to roll on.
It was actually really easy to swing 90 degrees to the right, pick that side up, run the left track forward, and swing at the same time. I walked it right up on the trailer like usual. A tilt would have definitely been trickier.
