Custom heavy duty 2" hitch

36 posts in this topic

Hi Great looking heave duty hitch.

The photos in the post showing the business end of the 401 show that the hitch is clamped in place so no welding required correct?

Next question is what is the lead time to get one shipped? Its going to Florida and I could probably fly to your place and pick it us for less that shipping cost but anyay... Its going on a 1997 520H

Thanks for making such a robust product.

Todd

Shout out to the hitch guys. Tom, I sent you a pm a week or better ago, just trying to see if your still doing the hitches. Now that I finally got a 2 stage for my 5xi I need one for counter weight options.

Hello I have a 1974 C-160 and I am interested in a hitch, I live in Maryland. Are you still offering the hitches and if so how much would a hitch be for my tractor? Thank you, Tony

To order a hitch call Tom are 989-213-2690. 

Just a reminder that these hitches are made to order.

Tom and I both have jobs and families, time is limited, but you will get you hitch as soon as we can get it to you. You will not be disipoited in the hitch when you receive it.

They will hold more weight then any other hitch on the market and I can say for a fact that you will brake the tractor before you brake this hitch. 

I have a 5 foot landscaping rake category 1 three point and a winch to raise it on this hitch. I had to add weight to the front of my V blade to keep the front tires on the ground.

the larger of the two is an XI hitch

 

 I'd like one for my 2000 314-8. A couple of questions. Which one would I need? I assume the regular version would work. Second thing is can I still use the original drawbar hitch that comes on the tractor? 

 

Thanks,

Craig

      Drawing for the Wheel Horse clevis hitch.

      I needed a hitch for my 3/15. I've seen some real nice ones here so I decide to build my own. The angle iron is scrap bed frame, tough stuff and plenty strong. The side pieces are 2"x2"X1/8" square stock, bought an 8' at my local steel supplier cheaper than I thought. I own a wellsaw horizontal band saw (saved from scrap yard) made the job quick and easy. The receiver tube was a 12" cut in half. Came from harbor freight. Welded, primed, 2 coats of toro red and 1 clear coat. Supports 180lbs of cast iron no problem

      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
