    A local has one with a closed cab converted to a ramp truck to haul his pulling tractor. Lots of room for family and friends to ride along. He's never late getting there. :)

    For that matter, check the brakes for operation somehow. I rented a drop deck to move a 5500 lb machine. It had surge brakes, I never used surge brakes before, thought I just couldn't feel them...
