Pretty cool, nice trails. These grizzlies are great work horses.
Till you break the hitch off :icon_ goofy:

I've broke the hitch itself & the bolts couple times on Grizzly's.
Last two I've reinforced the hitch from the get go.
Yes, mine is a real workhorse.

X2- sheared the bolts off on mine towing a trailer (a little too fast down the trail). Luckily, I put anti seize on the threads so I was able to back the broken bolts out easily.

Nice! I like your log hauling setup. Nice countryside to ride in for sure.

Make that x's 3. I sheared mine off towing a john boat. If it shears off now, it's taking the frame with it. I bolted a new one in and welded 1/4" thick gussets underneath it to the frame so it can't bend down. Seems to be holding up great so far.

That looked like it was going to be a real struggle. In the end i tipped the trailer up on its side , rolled the log over to it and tied the log to the trailer with a rachet strap. Then i used to winch to pull the trailer back over on its wheels. the log is 18 inches diameter and 8 ft long , works out to about 500 LBS
Thats a new road they are pushing through , great for heavy loads.
