I got bored today and started on a hitch for my c120. The welds aren't pretty but they will hold.

Did you have another for a pattern or are you winging it?

Where are you going to attach it? I was thinking that you could make it attach with the rear axle snow plow attaching braket. Good Luck, Rick

Still got to drill holes but here my finished product. My welds are really ugly today but they survived the hammer test.

You realize WHorse had a little diff hitch for that spot that just had a big slot in it that the implements slipped into?? Have seen those with an adapter to make it sleeve type connector that just slips into it, and out when not needed.

See attached photos.

Here is an OEM adapter for the same plow.

Here is the adapter I made, although it is too short, you can see the concept.

They also made a regular sleeve hitch as well, I have one for my '73.

Yep, they stick easy. Don't hit much with hard hammer, real easy to mush ends and then have to file or grind to slip out. Don't take much! BTDT

Make sure to drive the hitch pin out from right to left to prevent possibly breaking the thinner right lug on the transmission. Penetrating oil and heat are your best friends when it comes to getting those pins out.

Nice my old horse I had to mount our (nice looking) home made hydro loader to the frame. These old horses had a sturdy frame to em. .......the front axles on the other hand lol taught me I didn't look at everything (creak!!!!) Any idea what one could do to strengthen that area? Been wanting to eventually build another.
