I am looking for a topic about a front hitch for a 700 or 7000 series. I Searched the topic finding for a bit but I haven't found it yet. Does anyone remember any keywords other than front hitch so I can find this thing. I actually need it for a 917(7100) series but i could use the topic to make my own. I think I recall the member had one listed on eBay. I am picking up my new trailer today and want to keep it in my shed however getting it backed in to the shed is impossible with my pickup. I think a front hitch would make it a breeze. The trailer is a bit too heavy for my three wheeler and my truck is too long and I cant clear the trees. Thanks in advance for any help

I think he wants a front ball hitch and he's probably thinking about Roy's (RIP) post: http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=110395&SearchTerms=hitch

I doubt that the front or rear hitches are available anymore. I never thought of using a front one. It would come in handy when I try to back my boat into my garage with the tractor. I had a rear hitch made for my 7117H but it does not detach quickly, like the one in the diagram. Will that rear hitch fit the 7100 series also or just the 7000? I've never seen any of those being sold on eBay.

The rear hitch should be exactly the same on the 7100 as the 7000. Here is a listing of a 900 series(7100) that has a rear hitch for sale. http://stlouis.craigslist.org/grd/2254780965.html
