Default pistenbully towing 9000lbs

I volunteered to tow this temporary generator down to a plowed logging road from a tower. Easy job when things are going good. Tracks skipped a few times on the sprocket from me not tightening them enough after summer loosening.
But I did have 9000lb pushing my 6500lb canyon.

It in the containment at the site

I took it easy and slow cause it wasn't a tucker.
But the untold truth is it was all downhill and I wasn't pushing to skis under my radiator.

Jim VT, are you making fun of my little under powered antique over the snow machine, with two skis under the radiator, that barely can get out of it's own way...

looks like a great adventure with the PB
