Alright I have no intentions on pulling a 22 foot enclosed trailer with a s-10 :hammerhead: I just wanted to see what you guys would say.:cool2: But I am looking into a 5-10~6x12 enclosed trailer for the spring. Do you guys think I would have any problems? Its got the 4.3 v6 and I don't plan on going on the highway at all. I plan on having two 36 inch walkbehinds. and the normal trimmers and blowers?

Thanks!

You'll be okay pulling a 6 X 12 enclosed trailer.

I truely did laugh when I read the title of the thread.

Haha, That's what i was going for. What is a good price for a 6x12 enclosed with a ramp. Ive seen a few all around 1500 does that sound pretty fair?

Sounds pretty fair to me, I paid 2200 for mine new in 07. Around here the new construction has all but stopped so many contractors are dumping everything cheap just to keep the lights on

It depends on how much your putting on the trailer a walk behind and a push mower would be goos you start putting a rider also and you might have some trans problems

To me that sounds like quite a bit of weight and strain for an S-10. When I saw the title on this thread I was like wtf is this guy thinking!

The V-6 S-10 auto tranny is good for around a 5300 pound load. He'll be alright.

I would be a little concerned about stopping it.

I paid $1900 for my continental 6' X 12' a few years ago. I would eventually like to sell mine but I am saving up for a 16' to a 20' enclosed. My father in law pulled mine many times with 2 commercial mowers in it. He has an S-10 with the 4.3 and he had no problems at all, you just have to stop a little sooner than usual, but that is just common sense to do that.

I actually just got ride of my s-10 w/ 4.3 2 seasons ago after using it for 4yrs pulling a 5x10 with scag tiger cub, push mower trimmers blowers. That motor has more power than the truck can handle especially if it is 2wd. I pull an 18'6" bass boat an hour to the lake with it too. It is a great motor.:clapping:

oh and the only reason i dont have it now is because i bought another mower and bigger truck this past season. I would still have it if I wouldn't have expanded like i did.

Yea, Well see how stopping is, as long as you drive knowing its back there I think it will be ok.

I used that combo for a few years with no problems. Then, one day, I blew a spark plug. A piece of it got in the cylinder and 3000 miles later I bought a new engine.

I only got about 12 pulling the trailer. The last 3000 miles I had to dump in 2 quarts of oil with every fill.

I have a jimmy with the 4.3l. I tow a 5x10 with about 1200lb of stuff. Can't even feel it behind me. The jimmys weigh a lot more then the s10 to.

I couldn't fit two 36 toros in my 5x10, I also can't fit a 21 along side a 36.

Well see what I can find, What kind of toros are they? Prolines?
