Put Yari to the test last night!

I know I'm gonna get all kinds of hate for this, but I hauled ~1,000 lbs of stone last night across town to use in my yard. Got it free on craigslist! I've hauled lots of stuff with this setup, but this is by far the heaviest load I've carted.

Just thought y'all might be interested in seeing what our little eggs can do!

True that!

The aftermath: (Where the white stone is was previously just dirt.)

That is a very large picture.

I have been told several times that the issue is not pulling stuff but stopping it once it's moving.

as long as you are going a short distance and it is relatively flat, I figured it would be fine.

I wouldn't make a habit of it either.

Fixed. ;)

Yeah, I made sure to brake real early, and I definitely could smell them heating up after a long stop coming off of the highway.

Wow, I would not be game to do that - but the end result is worth it, the garden looks beautiful.
