Hello,

I currently have a 520H with snow plow hitch. Please send me details on how to purchase hitch for my wheel horse. My experience with similar type hitches from Ebay have not worked out and your pictures look like a perfect solution to my needs.

Thanks

Gary

This hitch is a killer dog, a great addition to my 416-8.  I believe it'll be worth its weight in wildflowers.

​Can this hitch be used with a slot hitch installed on my tractor?

Yes, I'm going for the first time. I've been thinking about one of your hitches and I thought that would be a good place to pick one up rather than ship it.

Hello all,

I purchased on of these hitches a little over a year ago and its turned out to be of the best, if not the best item I have bought for my wheel horse. I need to move two wheel trailer around at times and this works perfectly. Only problem I have you can make your front end very lite when too much weight is added to hitch.  You just need to be careful.  The quality was also excellent. I'd buy another one if I had use for it. 

Thanks and that is my .02 cents

Very true Gary. Extending the hitch further back from the axle compounds it but it sure does help pulling a trailer with an 'A' frame. I have to be careful about turning the tires into the frame on turns with what I'm using now. There's several 'imitators' out there but this is the only one I've seen that ties it all together with the lower mount. It's a great design.

Sent you a PM, wondering if you have a design for an RJ compatible unit with an 1 1/4" receiver instead of the 2 inch?  

 

Have removed the factory lift mechanism and slot hitch receiver, will be fabbing something minimalist for the RJ rear end if you guys don't have anything in the works.

 

Thanks!

Hi, I am wondering what size would fit my 1054. I am looking to pull a light load, but like the flexibility of the 2" receiver. Thanks.

Hi, am very interested in your hitch that fits a 520h 1993 model! can you give me a price to make one and ship to Galena Oh 43021? Thanks budman2

I totally agree with and confirm Gary 520H's comments in post #9.  If you want to move things with your Wheel Horse BUY THIS HITCH.  While moving loads of firewood in a 6x12 utility trailer with my 416-8 I sometimes have to travel in reverse to keep the front wheels in contact with planet earth but I know the last component that might cause trouble is this hitch.  I guess I'll have to mount my snow blade for ballast, but the hitch is pure gold.  Just one man's opinion.

I just purchased mine from a fellow RS member who had no use for his hitch any longer.  Maybe there are other members who are willing to sell theirs.

      I have a Custom 2" Heavy Duty Hitch for sale. Comes with mounting plates and hardware.
      It is brand new, never got to tow anything with it. I ordered it from one of the vendors on this site. He did a great job of making and shipping it, it was well worth what I paid for it.
      About the time I got it, I decided (sadly) I needed to part with the 520-H that it was intended for.
      I hope one of you guys can use it.
      I hope that the vendor (I don't want to mention his name without his permission) will understand why I am re-selling it this price.
      I will split the cost of shipping with the buyer, probably around 20 bucks more or less depending on where its going and how you want it shipped.
      Thanks
      Todd

      I have a 520H and need to mount a hitch to move a boat and trailer (approx 2000 lbs) No problem moving it with my old 244. I don't weld, so I am faced with looking into available ready made options. I have looked through RS pretty well and not found a solution. There are some vendor/members that have GREAT looking high quality stuff I just haven't seen one where the ball ends up high enough to suit my needs.
      I came across this on Ebay and wondered if anyone would care to give me an opinion.
      I see many different hitch arrangements that work with the drawbar but I don't understand what keeps the whole hitch unit from tilling forward and rearward as you reverse with a load.
      Am I just missing the point? I had someone weld a plate on my 244 so its locked in position but I just don't get how the "floating" drawbar hitch works. Does this depend on the "tabs" that rest against the back of the gearcase to act as "stops"?
      Thanks in advance
      Todd

      My buddy gave me his 523 Dxi tractor as I just moved from a 75' x 130' lot to 6 acres. A world of difference! I have a Gravely dump cart that I want to hook up to the tractor and want to get other accessories. Here is what is on the tractor now, so I guess I just need a ball hitch, but does anyone have other suggestions? or is there something better? THX

      Does anyone know where I could purchase the Scott Moreau receiver hitch for my 416 h? I welded a 2 inch receiver onto the standard wheel horse hitch but I need something a little stronger for a thousand pound boat I move around the property. I would also weld my own if there are any plans around. Thanks Chris
