Albeit very slowly... Assuming you don't come across any low bridges.

That's funny, my LJ 81 was used on a farm to haul the big round bails of hay (a ton?).

Water, and it was empty. That tank is 1200 gallons and now I have a 3000 gallon on to grab too. Those round bails Ruby are probably over a ton. I've also towed my sawmill with Misfit and that is over 2000 lbs. Actually pulled quite nicely plus you're as maneuverable as heck with the LJ. Have to see if I can find thise pics.
