    We use an F350 for the brunt of the towing, but the ideal truck for towing was our F450. Selling it, won't be availalbe for use next year.

    Hi Procut, I pull a 763 Bobcat around in a 12k dump trailer behind a 03 chev 2500hd. It wasn't my ideal vehical but I've been pleasently surprised. Pull probably 150 200 miles per week with the Bobcat, rest of the time getting rock or pallets of pavers , block etc, apart from only 10mpg I am really happy with the 4wdiscs. The trailer has electric brakes too, and I will swap to a dmax but theres always something else to get....

    I pull my T-190 around on a 14 foot 12000#trailer with a2500 hd.
    It has a 8100 vortec with Allison trans and it works great, not to say a diesel won't be nice to have but you work with what you have.

    Most people around here pull skid steers behind a regular P/U truck just make sure its a heavy duty 3/4 ton or a 1 ton and make sure you have good brakes on the truck and trailer.

    Not exactly a skidsteer..but it weighs about the same as a mid-size skidsteer and its the same trailer I use.
