This is what I thought , I was wondering why he said he towed that much... interesting.... I didn’t buy the truck to tow a bobcat , was just curious if it couldThat truck only has a 9100 pound tow capacity. By the time you put the Bobcat on the trailer, you will be probably 14000 lbs. The truck's suspension and braking system probably will not handle that much weight.
Loading our tractor did that with my Tundra but it would probably lift the 3500 also as the trailer really is susposed to have blocks under it to keep that from happening. Towed 14k+ with the Tundra but only on country farm roads and your braking was definitely compromised.I saw a guy loading a bobcat on a trailer hooked up to a 1500 last year. When he pulled onto the trailer, it lifted the entire rear of the truck off the ground. It was a beater truck but I can't imagine he did that for very long before destroying the truck.
We have two L5P Duramax trucks that pull our equipment trailers. One hitch and one gooseneck. In an emergency one day using my personal LM2 I pulled the hitch two axle loaded with our Bobcat 770 at 10,000 lbs and probably 14K gross on the trailer. The only difference I could really notice was I needed some air bags on the 1500 High Country so I could load the 770 with a bit more hitch weight. The 9100 lbs limit is BS IMO.The bobcat I am getting weighs 9827
A friend of mine says he tows dump trailers and bobcats with his
anyone have any experience
