Can a side by side pull a double trailer of the ramp ?
I looking in to buy a side by side like a rhino.
are they powerfull enough to pull a double PWC trailer with 2 waverunners out of the water ?
What about grip on the slippery ramp ?
i cant find a lot online for this , if you have any pics please post them

I would think so...
I used my dad's 88 honda riding mower to pull my seadoo out of the water and his ramp is a lot steeper than a normal launch ramp.

Im looking to buy a rhino 700 to launch my double trailer with a fx-ho and fzr
But i want to buy it specially for this reason so I'm not gonna use it for anything else..
Im using my everyday 4x4 at the moment but I'm destroying it with my wet clothes and stuff..
if it definitely no problem i'll buy 1
ps what about the traction ? will the wheels have enough weight on them to have the traction on a slippery ramp ? because its a light vehicle ?

I use mine in 4 low was worried as hell the first time on a steep ramp, it was not an issue at all.

well i use a polaris x2 800 on a gravel ramp ( mud in water so it sinks )
the double has a 06 rxp and a 95 gtx. pull it out easily with 2 people. ( me driver, and one sitting on the front rack)
the prob is theres a lack of weight on atvs / sxs
soon ill change the trailer to accomodate another rxp/rxt ( next year)
and see how that works.

P.s. forgot to mention. id get a polaris instead of a yamaha, for the reason of the awd ( instant 4x4 locked)
and that polaris rangers are heavier, thus have better traction.
on the side note, hows the botom of the water? sand ? mud?
how far will the sxs have to go in water? and what is the ramp made out of?
