    wow, lol, reading all that stuff was pretty funny. thanks for the ones that had something worth talking about. I tow it from the driveway, about 30 ft to the gate across the grass. So far so good. One trailer has 2 stand-ups on it, I can pull it myself but the blaster makes it faster. The other is a sea doo rxp, it is a bit harder but having someone push it to get it started helps greatly.

    i think if you can pull it a couple inches with your hands, then its ok to pull it with your blaster

    a couple weeks ago my dads 250r plaug fouled and i had to pull him up a dirt road, up a fairly steep hill, turn around, back down that hill, up a lil bunny hill and down that road again to the trailer, needless to say 4 stroke torque= WIN

    4 stroke pulling a 2 stroke back to the truck = DOUBLE WIN

    i towed so many things with my '96 blaster i cant count them, logs, telephone poles for a stream project my dad did with trout unlimited, quite a few other quads outta the woods (warrior alot), and quite a few deer
    sold it 8+ years later with stock motor/piston/clutch still in it
    towing never hurt sh*t, but, if it woulda been hard on the clutch, 30-40 bucks for new clutch plates is way better than a blown out back or hernia from over lifting or pulling yourself

    I just found this thread and thought I'd show a photo' of the tow hitch I made for my Blaster. I use it to tow a small utility trailer from my house into the forest above. Towing is no problem, care is needed when braking!!

    What hitch did you buy for your blaster? I know this post is pretty old but I just bought a blaster and was wondering if you bought the eBay hitch.

    It's not just a hitch I think it is a metal frame that hooks onto it that you have to make or you can try to find somewhere and buy I think.
