Yes float service around here is a minimum of 2 hr. charge, so that's about 200 . Can you not drive it 5 miles with the chains off and a slow moving sign mounted on the back. I 'm not sure of the weight or if a 1 ton will handle it unless you have the maximum license on the truck

200.00 for 5 miles. That's outrages. Wish I was closer I would move it with dually and gooseneck.

Ford is the only one that makes real trucks. The rest are just open air station wagons

$200 for the 5 miles did seem crazy and I second the condolences on the Ford.  You could always park it by the road with the keys in it, put a sign up about it having a full tank and hope some unsuspecting kid drives it home without discussing with his folks.  Only trouble is someone might stop and just take the fuel, then you'd be out some perfectly good fuel.  Worth the risk I'd say.  Good luck getting rid of the Ford and congrats on moving the skidder.

Oh heck, don't know what I was thinking..just fill the back of the truck bed with some good firewood.  Say firewood free if you keep the truck.  That should do it, then you don't have to spend the money on fuel.
