Re: Hitch Hauler Project

Robert has a good point, don't get rear-ended with full cans back there, you'll look like a 70s Pinto!

Talking Re: Hitch Hauler Project

Very nice project and I liked the way you used what you had on hand. I never throw away extra wood, pipe, wire, etc. as you never know when you will need it. I did read your entire post. :-) This is what you need for a positive stop for the hitch. I have this on a Snowsport Plow on the front of my vehicle. Makes it very nice just to slide it in and slap in the pin!! Bill

Re: Hitch Hauler Project

I got some of these for capping the open ends of the frame.

Re: Hitch Hauler Project

I was looking at some yard sale pics today and saw some mower deck gauge wheels and had that wonderful 'AH HA" moment. Those would be better than the pulleys I am using .

Re: Hitch Hauler Project

What I use... Also have a bigger homemade one for 6-6 gallon cans. Years ago had a fancy one I made out of aluminum, basically a big aluminum chest.. Was rearended by a chevy corsica and it went over the receiver hitch and crushed the box with 4 full gas cans. Luckily none of the metal caused a spark.

Now days having it open, if rearended again hoping the gas cans break off and slide under vehicle or into ditch.

1963 953 wheel horse hydraulic lift 54" dozer blade, 420cc Predator 60340.
2003 Dixon ztr.
2001 John Deere from Denmark 415 diesel 54" deck.
1998 2020LC 60" deck.
2016 Cheetah zero turn 61" Kohler fuel injected.
And a lot more...
