nope... 75lb on a rail is a cake walk... the cart itself weighs more than that

no not really... each track/cart pulls different... your really just using the drag weight to keep your dog conditioned... not to see how much he'll pull...

but lets say he can pull 75lb do you know around how much that would be on a rail
depending on the judge... if it is on rail then there will be a hole put in the track ( a spot where it dips down and the dog will have to bring it up out of the hole) there is more to it then just throwin weight on it...

75 lbs drag is a LOT more than 75 on rails. More contact with the ground = more friction, which requires more force to pull. Add to that that the track and wheels are smooth and have little friction between each other, whereas the ground and possibly the drag weight itself are rough, and have a lot of friction between each other. No way to really judge the difference without a scale, but I would compare the drag weights to rubbing 2 sheets of sandpaper together, and a rail system to rubbing 2 bars of wet soap together. :)

if you put a scale between the weight and drag your hand, you can see the lack accentuated k kilos to move it to pull, and then do the same by placing the scale from a cart on the track and your hand.puede give a fair idea .
bye
