    That’s got some weight, 2 guys can still get her on, will be able to just drag her off at the lake. What do you usually do for loading your quad?

    Haven't had my quad on the trailer. I've hardly ridden my quad since I bought it.

    Was gonna say just modify your quad ramps with some carpentry skills to get by for the day. Maybe someone can lend you a trifold for the weekend. If not you’ll get by with finding a snowbank to drive it on. If you do get a ramp just be sure to use the straps so your not buying a damaged sled when the ramp kicks out and spits out on you.
    Or have a few drinks and watch some Larry enticer videos and just send it lol.

    That Bearcat isn’t going to be light…since you’re borrowing the sled, and have no way of loading your quad onto your trailer right now either, I’d strongly recommend grabbing a set of trifold ramps. You can get them a bunch of places, PA, Can Tire, Peavey Mart, etc…

    I used the ones from Peavey Mart to load my old Tundra II in the back of my truck all the time. Like mentioned above, use the included straps and it’s easy.

    If you find you don’t use them again you can always sell them and recoup most of your cost. And that way you also don’t have to worry about messing up someone else’s sled.

    Just curious - what’s your plan for the rest of your gear? Do you have a sleigh to pull everything else?

    Looks like there is a guy on Marketplace that rents ramps.

    Depending how big your trailer is, transporting the flip also needs to be taken into consideration.

    My Lodge just fits in my box. Put the flat side in first and stack up 2-2x4’s just behind the wheel wells so you can close your tail gate

    If you get ramps make sure they are meant for snowmobiles. They should have plastic or teflon type material for the skis. The skegs or carbides on the skis will bite into a metal surface. Otherwise you could have an abrupt stop and/or knock the ramps loose. Possibly damaging you, the sled and truck. There are ramps made to do sleds only, quads only or both. Same goes for the decking on the utility trailer. Some have metal traction aids. Great for quads, terrible for sleds.

    Good luck in the tourney!
