Gotta love the Mexican safety standards.

A good friend of mine always tells me to stay away from these things going down the road. With good reason. See Ex:
He should know he sells mixers. I might note he does not allow them to leave his shop without the proper hitch and safety chain. But now when they come in for a repair he says they slap them on the back of a truck with anything. He has see them swinging below the bumper attached by rope. Attached with coat hangers...
What we have here is a loop in the trailer tongue that is set over the ball. It is secured ever so diligently with rope. Not that even then a bump in the road might cause it to bounce off the ball hitch. These guys with these mixers are dangerous. Back off or get to the other side of the road when you see one. My friend has been contact from out of state police because a few he has sold have been involved in high speed accidents. Like coming unhitched and going through the window of some ladies BMW. I'm just saying be careful.
Look, Pedro, I don't know how they do things down in Juarez, but here in Idaho we have a little something called pride. Understand?
