Default Most Bizzare Tow Vehicle

Craftsman's finest - hydromatic trans. Reinforced the rear plate, fabricated a hitch bracket and away we go. Garage is perpendicular to the driveway and a full size vehicle couldn't get the boat into the garage without trashing the neighbor's yard.

Not real safe. First time I got 3/4 into the garage, I got off the tractor to check clearance on both sides, and without my weight, the thing started being pushed off the driveway.

Nope. No can launch with Craftsman. I have a friend who works for Niagra-Mohawk power company as a lineman. He could tell the most amazing stories about people doing their own tree work, and then when everything went wrong, they would come in to clean up.

He told me one about a guy who took down a 70' tree that was leaning over his home. He "anchored" the tree with his garden tractor, somehow thinking a 250 lbs. weight was enough to hold a 5,000 lbs or more tree upright.

He said that as the tree began to fall on his house, the rope stretched slightly, and then literally sling-shot his garden tractor completely over his house, into the neighbor's yard.

That would have been almost as much fun as watching people launch their boats. Sorry, no pictures of it.

When I worked for a boat dealer I would use a Kubota utility tractor to move boats around. The adjustable 3point hitch was a god-send.

Some people should not be allowed out of the nut house.
