I have a 8x16 firebrand. I am thinking about moving it around the lake with my Arctic Cat 700 wheeler with independent suspension. I know a guy who makes a suspension type lock for Polaris ATV's and he thinks he can make one for my arctic cat. It looks legit and I know he sells them to several Polaris dealerships around the St.Cloud area. I also can have a guy make a dolly cart for an ATV. I'm leaning twords the suspension lock system but a wise man I work with, (yeah you Chuck) is worried it may be too much weight on those independent axles. I am a little leary about the cart because of the jack knife factor, and storing and transporting inconvenience of it. They are somewhat large and cumbersome. I know I'm taking the lazy way out by asking 'yall but anyone know roughly the toung weight of a 8x16 firebrand or yetti? Or the capabilities of a four wheelers axle system, or an opinion on which is better please share.

Working hard all week puts the beer on the table.
only downfall I see to the cart is when stopping or going down the ramp you might have trouble with the house trying to pass the wheeler.
my firebrand is roughly 300 lbs of tongue weight right now. will be a little more when I get the cabinets in up front. hooked it to my buddy's Arctic Cat 700 H1 and when he stood on the wheeler it was completely bottomed out. I know I will need a tow ski or something of the like if I plan to use a wheeler ever.
I use my Yetti year round for camping on my property by Crosby. I really need something that will help me be able to move it with my little wheeler. Just wondered if anyone could recommend a brand that has held up well for them.
