    I use an 8' tilt trailer to haul my atv. I back it on the trailer and drop the blade behind a cleat that way I don't have to strap it down each time I am done using it. Works great for me. What part of Indiana are you from?

    Same here. I have a set of aluminum ramps that i use to get it on and off. First the plow comes off, then the atv goes up, then the plow goes on the truck. It takes time, but what can you do? I don't really want to spend 1k on a dinky trailer as i have an enclosed.

    I used a custom built hitch hauler a couple of years ago. Now I have a 4x4 truck and no quad ,but this worked. I had the hitch hauler made just for the quad ,cost me $200. If you can weld it can be built for under $100. I have a pic but can't get it to upload ,but basically it's a large hitch hauler that just slides into your receiver. I think it was 42" x 63" ,not sure about that. Didn't have to remove the plow just drive it up on the ramp and strap it down.

    I found my original post with picture on this topic ,but can't figure out how to attach it. If you search for "my new heavy duty hitch hauler" you will see it.
