I want to use mine to move some light trailers around. Max tongue wt would be on the order of 100-150 pounds. Mostly less. Would it work out to just drill out the existing hitch hole, and install a ball, or should I make a bracket to move the ball back a few inches? I understand that this machine is basically more a mower than a tractor.
Yes, I was in a Menards yesterday and noticed they had the 1 7/8 ones, and cheaper than on Amazon. But they did not have 2" balls with the small shank.
They came from the Amazon order, and bolt right on. The only potential problem I notice is that the flange on the trailer coupler might hit the vertical steel on the tractor, especially with the 2" ball. We shall see.
