Re: weight to front of dexta

In Norway it was a company who fabrick,d such "front-bascet,s" so the farmer could drag it down for to put some woodenboxes on it, and then fill up with heavy stuff. This was sold alot, and it is still very populer, concern that you can put it up and down. http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n620/bl...
