Rented a Bobcat to spread out ~15 cubic yards of recycled asphalt (instead of gravel)

Don't you think that bobcat is a little heavy for your rig? I figure the bobcat is around 9000lbs and then the trailer is another 2500lbs...

You're right, just looked up the specs: http://www.ritchiespecs.com/specification?type=con&category=Skid+Steer+Loader&make=Bobcat&model=S150&modelid=92187

 

My friend and I rented a skid steer a couple years ago and I remember it weighed 8800lbs without the bucket. That was a heavy SOB!

I have a 6" lift, 35" tires and 3.42 gears. Thinking about a re-gear for towing. My boat is about 5.5k lbs. It pulls it, but struggles a bit as I'm in so cal and there are 7% grades en route to a few of the lakes I go to. Should have done the max tow package; too late now and looking at a trailer break and re-gear. Anyone of you with a lifted truck do the re-gear and tow? How's the difference?

 

Brakes seem to be working much harder with larger tires too. Might need to do something there as well.

What is the length of your trailer??

 

We are trading in our 21.5 foot travel trailer for a 31.2 foot travel trailer and am picking it up this Saturday. Feeling a little intimidated in towing the new one.
