    Anyone add “cheaters” to the front and back of a flatbed I’m hauling a lot of hay lately and want to be able to fit an extra stack just foot and a half or so on both ends any pictures would be appreciated thanks

    If you're hauling big squares, you can easily just hang them off a foot or foot and half without any kind of extensions.

    Seen it many times in Ca. for that or to get an extra row of bins. No pictures though. Looked like they just welded a couple 2"X2" receiver hitches like you see on a vehicle. Just slide the extension in and pin it.

    Large car Petes always get my attention, and I think I've seen that truck around central Co. Hay and pipe about the only thing I see flatbeds doing here.
