    Im renting a bobcat for a week and planned on hauling it with my 1995 isuzu NPR (turbo diesel), i wont be going any further than 20 miles, does anyone think i would run into a problem with this?

    On a trailer or on the back? It only weighs 1750 lbs so i don't see a problem either way.

    S175? 1750lbs? I'm pretty sure it's closer to 6600 lbs...

    Well, figure the tare weight of your truck (go to a scale with a full tank and you in it), the exact weight of the machine and attachment, your truck's GVWR and do the math.

    Your truck can probably handle it but can your ramps?
