jd.rasentrac, What are you using for a trailer hitch on the Gator? Smiley_Camera-1.gif
I thought I was all set with one only to discover the bumper would hit when the dump body was used.

Keith , if you enlarge the first photo, looks like it is a straight 2" receiver with 1 7/8 or 2" ball.

When we had ours that is all I used ,one my hitches had a 1" down if needed I would turn receiver over and then change the ball to match.

Get a shorter receiver. I had the same issue using the standard receiver from my tractor. I found a stubby receiver at Tractor Supply that keeps the ball forward enough that the dump bed and bumper clear.
Why do you need a shorter receiver? I don't understand all the problems with the bumper aso :dunno:

Today's mission: transporting building materials

Great grandpa is an 84 years young man with an old house. After a damage at the water pipe he had to open a wall - and now it must be closed again. So he sent me to get some gypsum. A nice gator-ride in the sun!

Yesterday we had a small community meeting. Every year Doris has a little gift for the participants - and mostly it's green and yellow and alcoholic.
We put the surprises in the right packings and Santa John brought them, with his GATOR sled, to Felsberg.

After visiting Felsberg Castle, Yannick was interested in a ride with the GATOR - now no more sled. And after the ride, he changed his christmas wish list...

Now Yannick wishes, that every day is a GATOR day!
