2" Ball Hitch (Regular Trailer Hitch)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever seen a hitch for the Simplicity tractor with a standard ball type hitch? I could use such a hitch on my tractor for my 4' x 8 ' dump trailer, and other trailer moves and changes. Thanks. Mark Balding

Dutch, I have one on my B110 came on the tractor. Looks pretty simple to make. If I can figure out how to get pictures onto this site I'll send some.

I have one on my tractor it is like the one dutch posted but it is only for the rear. It doesn't have the botom bar for hooking it to the front. Anything free is worth what you pay for it This & $1.00 might get you a small Coffee Maynard aka/UCD

I thought it was a good idea so I made one 2 weeks ago.I have used it to pull my 18 foot trailer with some of my garden tractors on it.About 500 lbs. on the ball it makes the tire squat a little but shure is handy.Bob

When I wanted a front hitch for spotting trailers & carts, I adapted a front blade hitch to use either a ball or pin. I can go under a trailer coupler, engage and raise without getting off the tractor.

Pat, The high "bed" permits a very steep dump angle (simply and efficient). The high sides (removable) are great for bulky loads. When loaded with firewood, that cart grosses at 2,000 pounds. Any of my tractors pull it easy, just have to plan stops.
