I just wanted to give some feedback I have put into practice your excellent lessons by hitching up a 6 ton trailer, 3 point hitch and pto for my wood chipper and successfully reversed trailer out of the narrow driveway and around the barns using the JD5090m with its loader.
I have done a little bit of flail work on the pasture but its now too late in year and moved 6 tons of wood for chipping and loaded into the chip hopper.
Your advice on safety still rings in my ears especially getting out of the cab and the safe stop, and so far by taking things really slow I have not broken anything.
Thanks for running the course and I am looking forward to next year and using tractor in more areas maybe even some light ploughing.
