Move a trailer with an ATV?


Recommended Posts

Guest foscoe944

Hi, I’m new to the forum. I have a large trailer, about 7500 lbs loaded, that I need to move around in my driveway. I was planning to buy a motorized trailer dolly, but it occurred to me that perhaps and ATV could do it, and then I could not only move the trailer but also have the ATV for the fun of it!

I’m wondering if anyone knows if an ATV can move a trailer this size? The tongue weight is about 750 lbs, and I’d only be moving it very slowly in a small space on almost level concrete and gravel.

welcome to the forums no atv out their can pull 7500 pounds and even if u were to get it moving the brakes couldnt with stand the pressure probably.... but if u really want something that can pull for something u really dont want to pull out the truck for go with the 07 diesel arctic cat not the fastest or really a mud worthy atv but those things were built for hauling... and the tongue wait at 750 pounds u would probably bend the reciever on the atv or shoot the s**t out of the shocks and the whole rear set up

Most 1/2 ton pickups are barely rated to pull 7,000 lbs. Highest factory listed pulling ability is 1500 lbs for an ATV.

      New to QuadCrazy and to the Forum.  I own a 1985 Suzuki LT230GE.  It was in rough shape when I bought it 3 years ago, but running.  I have ridden it over each summer, but this summer I decided to do some work on it.  I am hoping there might be a few guys on the forum with some experience with this make / model, or even more general ATV knowledge, who might share their expertise with me as I putter away at making it a better, more reliable machine.
      I am a Canadian, retired military Veteran (Kandahar AF, Sinai Pen) in the Eastern time zone, with 3 acres of bush that I am working on, and riding on.
      All that by way of introduction...
