    Yeah mostly tarps, sometimes a big bad limb too, I've pulled as close to a
    whole tree as you can get with it before as well, but I doubt it would do much
    with a trailer...

    And it is awkward, I only use the tow ability when I know I can't drag it by myself
    or when it's going to take more than a few trips, it's more of an emergency
    feature than anything else, I might use it once, twice a year but it's sure nice
    to have when those things come around.

    Why I made mine a simple device, didn't feel like putting much into it, the biggest problem
    is controlling the machine while you got what's being towed getting in your way.

    A Ztr would do much better, they already have a hitch too.

    Yeah, those ropes/chains will take out your feet when you turn, lol, it sure comes in handy for wet leaves though.

    Thanks for the help though guys!
