    455 2" receiver ball with pin hole?

    Anyone have a solution for me? Looking for a 2" receiver to tow around the splitter and other pull behinds. I would still like to retain my current pin hole on the 455 as well. Thanks

    Not sure if this idea might help or not. Before we had our HeavyHitch (which can use a receiver), I used a 2" ball on our drawbar. By drilling through the shaft, I was able to secure it with a lynch pin. Makes for easy on and off. Certainly wouldn't use it on the highway but works well for pulling our trailers around our place.

    I looked into the hitchin post on amazon and lowes but read some reviews that say it comes loose quickly. I eventually want a reugg 3 point and the heavy hitch looks slick for quickly adding weights and ball hitch. Anyone know what a 3pt + heavy hitch hits the wallet at haha?

    Used 3pts for the 425,445, 455 series are a little hard to find, either after market or JD oem, cost used if available my guess $300.00 or more, new Up to a grand. I have one on my 425 yet, I was offered $500 and I kept it. Although I probably don't need it with my 1025r, but it wasn't worth the trouble to remove it.

    You could always attach the ball to your current drawbar, with a piece of flat steel underneath it sticking out a few inches. Drill a hole in the end of the steel bar to use as a drawbar hole.

    It's not a 2" receiver, but if your trailers use the same size ball it could work.

    This is what I did: I got a short length of receiver bar from harbor freight. I match drilled holes in it to align with the holes in my standard JD tow plate on my tractor and attached with long bolts. Now you have a standard 2" receiver on your tractor! I put a ball on it, a sleeve hitch, and one of those cargo carriers, all attachable with a lynch pin. Works great. Sorry, don't have photos.

    I can't remember and I'm not in the barn, but I think I used the 18" but there is also a twelve inch too: http://www.harborfreight.com/class-i...ube-69815.html
