GP: Good post. The first half was totally worthless, but they finally got to good info in the last half.
One of the best things that you can tow with is a combine...especially one with duals...AND depending on the situation...a full grain tank for more traction. The engine is at full throttle, but you can gradually apply power with the hydro. With modern combines you can lock the drivers. With older combines...like a 1680...the drivers automatically lock with the hydro all the way forward...soooo...you have to be ready to pull back. lol. Two way radios come in handy...even if the operator with his "hands full" can only listen. They DID mention it briefly...but always snap a coat or old Army field jacket around the middle of the tow rope/cable/chain. You don't want any bystanders anywhere near the TOTAL LENGTH of the tow/rope/cable/chain. it is false advertising to show a stuck red combine. You might have to unload the grain tank. You might even have to dump the grain on the ground if you can't get a grain cart under the auger. You might even have to drop the header and drag it out separate. But, you can not get a red combine stuck.
