Default Re: Tail heavy

When I went to it, it had all 8 legs down managed to hook up then wound all the legs up only to find I could barely move it,like you said severe lack of traction, so wound the landing legs down, pulled the trailer pin, fulled forwards and up she went
Going back tomorrow to empty it hopefully
