    2 inch hitch receiver

    Here i took some advice from a fellow member and mounted a receiver hitch on the bucket so i won't have to turn around when putting my trailer away around blind corners. I also cut the plastic off from around the ignition key to help stop my knee from hitting and bending the key. This was also a suggestion from a member.

    I used my lawn tractor to move my trailers around in and out of the sheds. I just traded the lawn tractor with one of the members here for a jeep. I needed to come up with a new way to get things shuffled around without cranking my neck around. ( Three neck surgeries )
    Thanks to member for sharing the idea and to Mr. Ken for his product!

    No, however, I have the extra heavy duty skid steer bucket. It is not a single thickness, so I had to weld on the hitch. Tongue weight of the gooseneck trailer is around 1400#.

    It was on the tractor when I bought it. The original owner purchased it from John Deere dealer Sloan Implement in Northern IL.
    The cutting edge is double sided , so you can cut down when you back drag the bucket. It is kind of a pain because , their is always mud and rock getting hung up between cutting edge and bottom on the bucket. It sure helps when scraping hard packed dirt though.
