to tow..or no tow (ZTR)?

I guess this question comes to mind as this chariot (GD) I just got fixed up has a added tow bar out back. I was planning on just cutting the welds and removing..But then thought maybe once or twice a year I might want to pull something say up from back yard like my old 1950's tent camper..or if I need to pull the 34" walk-behind up for some unknown reason? I don't want to over-stress the system though- this mean I should cut off hitch and forget it-or leave it and just use good judgement and don't over do it?- as always..your imput is greatly appreciated.

You got the idea Greg, Dixie Choppers are good for 2000 lbs..... Not sure what brand hydros are in yours but don't see a issue pull'n a small camper once in a while, You can drag that 34 all day long.....

Thanks Rob..I'll just leave it then and that makes it lot less hassle too since I just put the bumper on and didn't really want to remove again. P.S..I'll forgive you Rob for calling me Greg. I'm sure it's been a long day (sorry..couldn't resist) Gene
