    Looking for a small hithch mounted cargo rack / basket sort of attachment.

    I purchased this 4 gallon Milwaukee Fuel M18 Sprayer recently, I had planned all along to not use it as a back pack. I had planned to strap it to the back of my ATV. Turns out running the ATV and steering with one hand and spraying with the other is a lot more difficult than I had thought it would be, plus changing directions, and manovering in tight quarters, is a real pain in the rear with the ATV.

    I am now wanting to figure out a good way to mount up some sort of small rack hopefully something that can be easily taken on and off the X758, looking for a hitch mount cargo basket or rack of some sort. Most of what I am finding on line is 48-60" wide.
    I even purchased a 48" hitch cargo rack. It is really way to big for what I am wanting.
    Does anyone know of a nice small hitch mounted rack or basket.
    I think 24"-36" wide would be the max I would want it. With some height adjustability would be nice too.
    Anyone seen anything like this on the market?

    Here some details on my sprayer.

    When you say rear hitch are you talking about the 3 point hitch or a hitch integrated to the back of the x758?

    No, more of a receiver type hitch. I don't have a 3pt setup on any of the X7s.

    Here is a pic of the one I bought. I am just trying to find something similar only a lot smaller.
    I really don't need it to be 4ft wide.

    Here is a couple examples, but I don't know how they mount, or where to buy one. These might even be home made.

    Do you have a welder? I made something similar for a handheld sprayer a while back to mount the back of my lawn tractor. Think large metal milk crate. I just bought a few sections of L-channel, a couple flats and a hitch stub from Harbor Freight and welded together a box frame of the dimensions required for the sprayer. I then welded the hitch stub to the bottom and slid it onto my receiver. I even made a little holder for the wand. The sprayer sat down in the box without flopping around. All total the materials were less than $20.

    No, I wish I did, I also wish I knew how to weld.

    I thought about pulling the sides off the rack I bought and trying to zip tie a milk crate or something to that center bar. That was about all I could come up with for build it myself sort of ideas.

    I saw a post on here about heavy hitch offering 2" receivers for X7s. I was looking into ordering that and spotted this weight mount.
    I think I could combine this weight mount with a good size riser and possibly come up with something that way.

    That looks like a good idea. Perhaps the OP could fabricate a wooden box of the correct dimensions and attach to this bracket to hold the sprayer.

    I went ahead and ordered one.

    Looked like Amazon had the best deal on them.
    $42 bucks vs tractor supply was wanting $94.

    This was the Amazon description.

    Dee Zee DZ97906 Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    Hitch Mounted Tool Chest Carrier
    • Turn Any Utility Chest Into Hitch Storage
    • Pre-Assembled Welded Construction
    • Fits Standard Class 3 Trailer Hitches
    • Rated For 250 lb. Weight Capacity

    I am still going to be looking for something already built, just really surprises me all these different brands of this sort of product and no one seems to make a small one. All are either 48 to 60" wide.

    I started this search thinking this should be something easy to find and buy off the shelf. So far I have a bunch of hitch parts and brackets and such piling up, and nothing is quite working out like I was envisioning.

    I also ordered both versions of the 2" heavy hitch receiver hitch for the X series. I made good use of that TTWT coupon code again today.
    Also ordered the ripper shank combo kit for my larger machines that I have weight 3pt heavy hitches on. These guys make some nice quality stuff. Wish they made a little basket or cargo tray . LOL

    That JD 1.25 is so light weight that what I was trying to do with it seems to more then it will be able to handle just that empty 48" rack I put on it is flopping around so much empty it acts like it will break that 1.25 JD hitch off. I hadn't even tried to put the sprayer on it yet.

    Thanks for the help guys.
