Hi Neil,
Think that’s a big ask.
Tractor is a 4wd 18hp Husqvarna Rider Pro. Without cutters weighs in at around 300kg and has no problems pulling our 750kg rib around on fairly flat grass and up a 1 in 7 paved slope. Lots of power but limited by weight of unit.
Have pulled a 1700kg caravan and a 6.5m rib for short distances over firm level ground but not sure the hydrostatic transmission would stand up to a regular load like this.

Love seeing the rigs. Keep'm coming.
Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.

Thanks Mike just got back, had a blast at Loch Ken, weather was perfect, got twelve hours in and broke in the engine. Nailed the water ski course which was bigger than expected I don't have the GPS connected yet, so speed is only a guesstimate around 30mph at 3/4 throttle, I was the fastest thing there, but I wasn't pulling a body.
:waterski
And managed to miss the rock, but I was extra careful and put the wheels down in and out, thanks to your advice, :thumbsup
