Default Winter towing

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has any experience in towing with a 2010 ford ranger 4 cyl. I need to tow around an Atv with snow plow on a trailer to remove snow from clients homes. Are there any problems? Any kind of feed back would be great. Thank you

Mike

Welcome. I would agree a nice pair of meaty tires, or even a studded set just for winter use.

Welcome to FRF
2 wheel drive ?

If so there should not be except for slipping and sliding . Put some weight in the back and you should be ok . Depending on the weight of the trailer , it should not be an issue as its not that much pulling weight .

Welcome to FRF!

You should be able to pull the ATV relatively easy, don't expect your 4cyl to be a mjor powerhouse or anything though. Good set of tires and you should be able to do it. Is it 2wd or 4wd?
