Farming with an old pickup can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not a big fan of the gas-powered tractors.
Here’s how to get started.1.
Buy a truck or van2.
Find a farm that will transport the potatoesYou’ll need a trailer hitch, a truck hitch, and at least two tractor wheels.
The hitch can be made of wood or fiberglass, and it should have a small handle for lifting the potato to the trailer.
You can also purchase a small tractor trailer for less than $200.3.
Make a plan to transport the potato on the trailerThe most important step is to find a place where you’ll be able to transport your potato on a trailer.
Start with a truck.
Make sure the trailer hitch is in place and there’s enough room for the potatoes to roll over.
Once the hitch is installed, use a metal pole to hold the potato over the hitch.
If the trailer is too short to carry the potato, a larger metal pole or a trailer frame can be used to hold it up.4.
Make your own tractor trailerOnce you’ve built the trailer, attach the hitch to the tractor.
Set the trailer on a solid surface and use a heavy-duty jack to secure the hitch and the tractor to the truck.
The trailer should be able go up to 30 mph.5.
Put your potatoes on the truckThe first step in the process is to put the potatoes on a truck that you can use to transport them to your home.
Use the same hitch as the trailer you bought.
The key is that the trailer needs to be tall enough to hold your potatoes.
Once you’re ready to start, make a list of all of the potatoes you plan to put on the tractor and attach the trailer to them.
Take the list and attach it to the hitch on the vehicle you purchased.
If you purchased the trailer as a tractor, the hitch should be mounted on the bottom of the tractor, and the trailer should have at least 2.5 inches of clearance between the trailer and the bottom.6.
Put the potatoes in the trailer7.
Turn on the lightsOnce the trailer lights are on, you can turn the tractor on and off to change the driving mode.
You’ll need to attach the tractor trailer to the axle, which should be attached to the front of the trailer with a 3/8-inch-thick metal rod.
You don’t need to put your tractor on a flatbed truck to turn it on, but it’s better to have the trailer move around a lot during your planting season.
If your tractor doesn’t have a tow hook, use the hitch of your choice to attach it.
You might want to attach a hitch to a truck jack.8.
