Stuff It Hauls
The imagination is almost the only limit to what a Yard Glider can haul, but here are some example of what we have hauled, and what our customers from around the world are hauling. Yard debris, storm cleanup, branches, logs, mulch, dirt, hay bales, manure, feed, wild game, bulky objects, playgrounds, dog houses, equipment, washers and dryers, refrigerators, brick pavers, sod, bison, giraffe, bear, cow and so much more
Haul It With
Mower, tractor, golf cart, atv, utv, pack animal, 2wd motor cycle, skid steer, jeep, truck and more. Lighter loads can also be pulled by hand.
Do you need pull cables?
Because you can pull a Yard Glider with any strong rope, chain, cable or tow straps, we make pull cables optional. But, our pull cables are awesome! We make a dual cable system with two 48″ galvanized 1/4″ cables. Each cable has a large loop on one end for dropping over a hitch or hook, or pulling by hand. We also include 4 quick attach clips for additional attachment options. Made in USA.
Other Important Information
50 States, Canada & Australia
Yard Gliders are being used in all 50 states, Canada and Austraila to make moving all kinds of material easier. Be sure to check out our Features & Benefits page for lots more information and suggested uses.
Stone Boat, Tarps, Car/Truck Hoods, Plywood, & Truck Bed Liners
Yard Glider is a modern day version of the stone boats farmers used to use. We just made them lighter, more flexible, easier to maneuver and capable of shipping via UPS instead of LTL Freight. As for tarps, they don’t last and they can’t handle the weight. Car/Truck hoods are heavy, sharp and unsightly to have hanging around after you use them. Plywood is heavy and gets waterlogged. Our favorite DIY option is the center section of a truck bed liner. The material is very similar to a Yard Glider.
Following Equipment Guidelines for Towing
Always follow manufacturer guidelines for the towing limitations of any machine you are using to pull a Yard Glider. Do not exceed manufacturer recommendations.
Don’t Let People Ride
