All right I'm scared we're about to see What happens when we overload our Tractor How do you work a tractor Beyond its Limitations well I'm going to show you Today exactly what happens when you try To lift too much with a front end loader Or lift too much with a three-point Hitch so this comment came up uh several Times in the busted Bobcat video that I Did a little while back had a customer Who put a lot of hours on his tractor And a relatively short amount of time Compared to The majority of tractor owners okay so He put about 500 on in a year compared To most maybe putting 50 to 100 hours on In a year okay so we did work his Tractor a lot he had a lot of problems With that tractor though and 500 hours For a tractor isn't much at all whether It's in a year or in 20 years it's just Not a lot of hours on a tractor so some Folks chimed in with comments like you Know he was working the tractor too hard Or he bought the wrong machine you know Tractors can't do that kind of work and He's working it Beyond his limitations They're just you know it's just asking Too much of it And I just really struggle with those Kinds of Concepts and thought processes Because tractors are designed to do work And they're designed to do work within

Certain parameters and they can't do Anything beyond that that's just that's Not possible to do so It's like saying well you scoop too many Piles of dirt with your bucket or only Dig 80 Scoops with your backhoe before You need to take a break for two hours Because your tractor has to rest I mean These are kind of goofy Concepts that I Don't think make a lot of sense and so I Want to demonstrate again what happens If you do try to work your tractor Beyond what it's rated to do I think that'll help visualize how you Can't do that all right there's safety Factors in place and in fact we did this Last summer with a John Deere 3025e Trying to pull too big of a a All-purpose plow behind it and what Happens is the tractor just stalls out Tractors have mechanisms in place to to Prevent the operator from unknowingly Damaging the tractor or perhaps putting Themselves in a dangerous situation not That you can't find yourself in some bad Spots but it's going to have things in Place there to help that and so Everything on a tractor is built Engineered designed assembled to all Work together all right and you see some Folks out there that are making Hydraulic tweaks and you got to do that With caution you got to really know what You're doing because if you're going to

Try to up the hydraulic capacity of the Tractor Then you need to know if the loader can Handle it if the axle can handle it if The tires can handle it if you have Enough ballast weight to handle it You know there's so many other factors That go into What a tractor can do and if you make a Tweak To try to get more oomph out of it it Could have some really bad unintended Consequences all right so we're gonna do This demonstration now we're going to Start out with the front end loader I do Have liquid ballast inside the tires This is the heaviest tractor on the Market in its frame size so we have a Lot of ballast weight here we're going To try to lift way more than what this Loader is ready to do just to see what Happens You ready all right I'm scared we're About to see what happens when we Overload our tractor Huh Can you believe that we just tried on Purpose to overload our tractor work it Beyond its limitations and absolutely Nothing happened can you believe that I am so disappointed huh what are these Tractor manufacturers doing designing Things To protect the operator in the machine

And we do that on this channel to Experiment and see how far we can take Things just to see what the answer is oh One other Kind of related topic too is the tractor Range that you're into the tractor speed That you're in and a lot of folks want To be in the high range to go as fast as They can but if you do that you're going To lose all the torque that you get in The low range to accomplish that same Work and high range is typically just Kind of from going from point A to point B with no load on the tractor even Hills Can stall out a tractor if you're in High range if you need to be doing you Know hauling a load or if you're going To be working a field or brush hogging Being low or medium range if your Tractor has it equipped always reference Your manual it'll tell you But again these are the kind of things Where you're not going to do them on a Repetitive basis because The tractor is going to tell you I don't Like it and then that means you're not Going to like it either because you're Not going to get your work done the way That you want to so I'm a visual learner And hopefully this kind of helps you Visualize what will happen if you Think you're overloading your tractor Right I lifted a safe up or I tried to Lift the safe up uh when we were moving
