    This one guy that I know wants to take a rope and hook his pick-up and my bobcat back to back to see what one will pull the most. He has a chevy Z71

    I'd venture to say the bobcat with its low end grunt will pull the chevy around the lot,

    The bobcat weighs more. So maybe your right. I may just have to hook on him one of these days:laugh:

    It depends on the surface you will be on. In sand or mud it depends on tires, on dirt or pavement I would think the Bobcat would win. Better use a chain instead of a rope though, I remember doing this with my M610 and breaking the rope which whacked against the ROPS! I was pulling a truck out of the mud with the little Bobcat from a paved street. As a challenge I hooked the bobcat to a tire service truck and get more traction till the engine stalled. The joke was on him though because I just pushed the sticks forward and he couldn't move me. Do let us know if you try your experiment!

    Make it seem as though you're not interested, but "I guess we can, but don't drag me fast and you better stop" attitude.

    I just want to make sure that I win, not that he really would pull me around, and make me look like a fool

    Just so everyone knows the kind of bobcat I have, most people do. 2007 S-160 K series. With the counter weight, so I will be that much more heavier. And make sure I have a full tank of fuel.I don't have any tracks on. Because I work on cement some of the time. The tires are about like new. It only has 400 hours on it.
