Happy New Year all!

Is there any problem with keeping weight in the cargo bay of a Gator such as a load of firewood for extended periods of time, but no more than, say, a month? Any impact on the suspension?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Might be more concerned with tires developing a flat spot than anything else. It may be temporary in nature but it is something that can happen. Then again it depends on how much weight is left in bed.

Good point, hadn’t thought of that. Just checked and there was no obvious sign of “flattening” from weight. The most weight I would say is maybe 700 lbs; or about 2/3 face cord of firewood. Since not using the Gator much in winter seems like a good place to keep the last load of firewood.
