get either the foreman or the Rubicon
I lean towards the foreman, and a MANUAL shift, for tugging on the tree;s
pulling a 250lb drag is a LOT of resistance on an atv, as its NOT the weight of the implement, its the resistance it gets when being dragged, the teeth dig in and can add hundreds if not thousand of lbs more to the drag from it!
to be 100 % Honest,
your WAY better off buying a small tractor, will to the work a TON easier and less wear and tear on things
I have used both atv's and tractors doing farming work, there is NO comparison between the two when it comes to pulling things! Night and day difference!
can an atv do it, sure, but its as they say NOT the right tool for the job,!
Sorry to bust your bubble, just honest info here!
I'd suggest you look for a older tractor, like a IH Model H, or a Ford 8-n
can be had for about a grand and will pull a drag all day and not break a sweat and save you a bunch of time and money! and not be killing your atv!
then buy an atv for fun LOL
