Hi,

I am looking for a few design ideas for the Panzers to install a hitch setup. There is a drawbar style wedged under the rear end and bolted to the bottom of the sleeve. This sets the tongue of wagons and trailers too low. I've tried a few different things, but none seem to work like I wish. Idealy I'd like to mount a 2" receiver tube somehow so I can use an adjustable height hitch. I'd love to see some pictures or designs you guys have tried that seems to work.

I am also wanting to find a set of dual hub mounts, wheel weights, loader, generator, hydraulic pump assembly, snow blower and a tiller attachment. I bet these are on most of your lists though. I would appreciate any help or leads on any of these items. I am more than happy to post videos and photos of the Panzer hard at work.

Thanks for your thoughts and help.

Clint

This is what a previous owner did to my 1107. This is a simple hitch for a car from before the 5 MPH bumpers and rubber bumper covers. It is designed to mount directly to a car bumper. Makes my yard cart ride level. You could make one pretty easy from scrap steel.

Dirty Contacts,

Now this is what I was looking for. I could use it up or down and use pins with cotter keys for quick flips or bolt it on snug for heavy pulling. I have a ton of different stuff I drag behind this thing. Wagons, trailers, boats, cars! You name it, I drag it! Just today I used a lawn roller with 6 concrete blocks on it for weight. I can't get enough of these things. Can you tell me the dimensions of the hitch? I'm going to make one and I just want to make sure it's long enough. The lift arm seems to get in the way of the one I'm using currently when hooking up to trailers with lock couplers. It's because it isn't long enough.

Thanks again,

Clint

They are the original tires, but they are in very poor condition. I have some chevron tread 12 inch ATV tires I'm going to install ... someday.
