My Favorite GT "Trailer"

Recommended Posts

I think I put more hours on this trailer around the yard than I do on the road. And that is a lot. I have a hydraulic winch I wanted to put on it, but all said and done that would cost more to setup than a small 12 volt Warn winch brand new, maybe a lot more. The trailer is hooked to my 7112H pretty much full time, except when I'm using the blade, and while that 12 horse wont tow it up much of a hill with a full ton on it, it does just fine. I could almost get rid of my dump carts, almost.. :) The 7112H's hitch was drilled out to 3/4" when I got it, and a $10 2" ball is, I think, the most bang I've ever gotten for ten bucks, except maybe this site! :D

yeah! I agree best ten bucks ever spent was the club dues. I was getting firewood outta the woods with the small dump cart witch is nice for driving right up to the wood.I would love to make a trailer 4' wide and 8' long so if tractor fits the trailer fits.You have a nice trailer there though. Think i might drill mine out for a ball now!

If the hitch hadn't already been drilled, I would have found a ball with 1/2" or 9/16" shank. Simplicity used to sell them. Drilled to 3/4" it gets a little skinny around the edges.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
