    Does anyone in the lawn service use a SUV to pull their trailer? If so, what kind of SUV do you have? I'm looking for something that will manuver easier than a pickup. Thanks

    What kind of trailer are you pulling? And what kind of equipment is on the trailer? How does it pull?

    When all my trucks are busy I use my Expedition to tow my New Holland LS170 skidsteer. It tows very well. I also ordered my truck with the load leveling suspension in it from the factory. The truck sags horribly untill the airbags fill up... Plenty of power though..
