I don’t see why not. But I’d rather use my P/U for a load like that.


Still looking for a S Texas quail lease spot.

Yes... that’s roughly only 3750lbs plus trailer weight. I probably would personally put more weight over the axle and get it off the tongue though. Think I’d save my belt though. With that said your rear axle and suspension set up will pull it better then a mule DX/FTX






Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Tongue weight is more important than pull.

A friends 1977 Ford LWB 4x4 pulling a 14' flatbed and his brand new Mule Pro 4 seater died in my driveway.
I pulled it all about 150 yards with my old Mule 3010 4X4 - but was straight pull on fairly level ground.

Wouldn't want to do it all day, every day but sometimes it's just easier.

I did destroy a belt on same mule dragging truck tires around to level the dirt practice track for our race cars...


Cheers,

Tongue weight would be my concern there, not moving the load on flat ground.
