Alright in this clip we're going to talk about removing the snowmobile from the trailer. Some trailers are tilt trailers, and so they're going to be able to actually hinge vertically like that. It makes it a lot easier to get the snow machine off. This isn't a snowmobile-specific trailer, so if you have a reverse, it's great, because you can just put it in reverse and use the power of the machine to back off the trailer. This one doesn't have reverse, so we're going have to pull this one off by hand. So when you're pulling your snowmobile off by hand, you want to make sure to have an extra person with you to help out. This is a pretty light machine. Two people works pretty well to pull it off. You want to make sure your hand break isn't on, that way the track can freewheel when you're pulling it off backwards. You want to make sure you have a lift-gate on the back of your trailer. That way, it makes it easy to load and unload, so you don't have to lift the machine up. If you don't have a lift-gate, then you can get side by side and actually pick the machine up, because it weighs about 500 pounds. But you're not lifting the whole thing at once, so two people can lift the machine off and set it down. Alright, now that you've got the snowmobile unloaded, you'll be ready for the next step.
