    2 inch Receiver that works with imatch (on 1023e)

    Just purchased a 1023e and I'm looking for a 2 inch Receiver that can attach to the imatch. I see a lot out there on Amazon, but are they the correct size? Will they fit on the imatch? Anyone have one out there? If so, what do you have? With every option, would I need to buy bushings for it too?
    Thanks for your help,

    Look at Heavy Hitch under Vendors they make a 3 pt reciver with brackets to hold weights. Works with my TSC quick hitch.

    It might be more than you want to spend but I sure like my Heavy Hitch. The model I have doubles as a weight bracket for suitcase weights, 2" receiver and I have a grab hook on it as well. I also have the cart with casters which is handy for when I don't need the weight. Pop it into the 2" receiver set it down and even with suitcase weights I can wheel it around the shop.

    Thanks for your help,
    May I ask what it is you intend to tow? The reason I ask is that since the 3PH has no down force you have to be very careful when towing a trailer as if the tongue becomes unweighted it will raise up in the air. The could damage some trailers or cause you to dump the load.

    I routinely tow a 5x10 landscape trailer with mine. Since the trailer is single axle it has plenty of tongue weight and I've never had a problem. But I've also towed my 17P poly lawn cart and occasionally the load will make it back heavy and it will lift up on the 3PH.

    For my receiver setup I went with a standard Cat1 drawbar from TSC and bolted to it a vertical adapter that I got from Ebay. It is quick hitch compatible.

    I had a 3,000lb boulder on a trailer towed via my skidding winch's 2" receiver and the rock shifted back on the trailer causing the tongue to reach for the sky and the skidding winch damn near took out my extra hydraulic valves for my stump grinder (it was within an inch!).

    I'm not really sure of a good way to prevent this aside from only towing via the draw bar (like we're supposed to ).

    Thanks for your help,

    I made mine from a standard category 1 draw bar that I had... It looks kind of like this...................

    And I added a drawbar hitch adapter from Omni... like this...

    There are other ways of doing this.. I just happened to have the draw bar so I bought the piece from Omni.


    As far as needing bushings, you'll notice that the pins on the draw bar are 7/8" diameter (category. 1). You'll find that the fit on your Imatch is going to be sloppy, as most quick hitches are set up to use larger pins at both the top and bottom (cat. 3).

    To eliminate the slop, you'll need some bushings. Be sure to look at the packaging and notice that they're for either the "top link" or the "lift arm".... They're not the same...

    On the bottom, or "lift arm" pins, you can use the large one piece bushing like this to go from 7/8" to the 1 7/8" cat.3 size

    Or, you can use a cat.1 to cat.2 with a cat.2 to cat.3 over it... kind of like this....

    On the top link, you'll need to do the same with a couple of bushings.....
