    Installing ball hitch on frt. Loader?

    I no this is an odd request. Having a snowblower attached to 3pt, is it possibly to have a some type of quick detach trailer ball hitch mounted on frt. Loader? While clearing snow from lot it would be nice to use tractor to move trailers around on property.

    Simply add a 2" inside receiver tube to the bucket,, then you can use your various receiver hitch adapters with the necessary size ball.

    pull a pin the ball is no longer in the way,,,

    The website isn't really great for linking right to the product, but Ken offers a bolt on receiver hitch that would work exactly as you want half way down on this page:

    I'll second the recommendation for Ken's bucket receiver hitch. By adding a Ball-Dog it can also serve multiple functions.

    Thanks guys

    I'll just add that there are a few fork sets on the market that have an integrated receiver in them, it's real handy for moving trailers around too.

    Agree these are nice BUT... they require you to wrestle off the heavy fork tines every time you want to use the hitch. And of course wrestle them back on when you are finished. I can honestly say it is something I would probably never do unless I had a whole parking lot full of trailers to move.

    Meanwhile, the KBOGH 2" receiver hitch requires minimal effort and minimal time to put into action! :-)

    The OP has a 3PH snow blower attached so was specifically looking for FEL options. :-)

    I'm glad to hear it has worked out for you but quite frankly having two 42" forks sticking out each side while I'm trying to turn and position a trailer seems to be an accident waiting to happen. :-)
