Not trying to be smart but I read this question thinking a four wheeled tractor doesn't need a special hitch like a two wheeler. Ya got my curiosity up so I did some searching and see Bolens had what is called an "Instant Trigger Hitch" on the rear of its early riders such as the Ride-a-Matic. I know its not a good picture but look in the green area to the right of this page. [ if it opens right]
