    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.

    cheers

    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 have an 2008 yamaha rhino 700 efi and it does it just fine...my friends have a fzr and an fx sho on a big magic tilt trailer and we use mine to launch all of our skis right on the beach...low range in 4wd does just fine even without the differential lock on...i work at a polaris dealership and like osidebill said a ranger would be good as well as i deal with them things all day long....i just mainly like my rhino because it fits right in the back of my truck so i can still hook my ski trailers up to the hitch depending on what i want to take out....makes it extremely convenient...if you are interested in buying it let me know i will let it go for fair market value...

    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?
