Hi!

Which setting should I use moving my small boat around?
Boat is about 15 feet long on a trailer weight about 1500lbs

Thought setting 6 would be best for less sagging. But any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks. And have a nice weekend!

Don't know what setting. But that is a lot of weight to be pulling on an atv...

I wouldn't tow on 6 just due to the strain on the axles pulling weight and the angle they will be at. Don't have my manual handy but I think 1500 lbs is the towing capacity they are rated for though and I don't think you'll have a problem. Have pulled SXS's weighing 1200 lbs plus two occupants out of stuck situations before with no problems.

I would've used my winch and two snatch blocks to make a block and tackle to reduce the load on the winch for that kind of weight, let alone the stress on the winch mount.

I pulled a trailer full of split firewood around my yard and it weighs maybe close to 1500. It can be done just make sure you have it in low and also 4x4 or the rear tires might just spin. I did this with my 500
