How would you attach it - would it have to support the weight of the toung?

On what type of surface?

I've moved around a few boats with a 4 wheeler, it can be done, depending on the surface and the incline. Also tandem or single axle trailer?

We use a John Deer Gator with a hitch on the back to move the boat into place. It works wonders, but you need to go slow. It's a 2WD.

It'll move it no problem. We often move in and out of shows with 4-wheelers. They aren't set up for the tongue weight, but they work just fine.

we towed my buddy's ps 190 w/ 3 people and a 500 lb sack up the ramp and a quarter mile back to the house with a polaris ranger 4x4.

another idea would be something like this: http://www.dragger.com/home.html .

Screw the 4 wheeler. Buy a BIG propane fork lift for the job. Then you can move your Bu AND add 3-4 to your C.I.

Can't get the drawbar down low enough.

Looks like you'll need DUBs on the Deere! Rockon.gif

I've pulled boats around with our 400 Xplorer 4x4 in low range before. Doesn't seem to have much of a problem with them.
