Don't forget to use safety chains

" First of all, let me state this is a great product, but I tend to abuse my equipment. I am using this on a lawn tractor with traction treads pulling a small trailer loaded with up to 400+ pounds of hay. Needless to say, I already had to reinforce the back of the lawn tractor mount since it tended to bend from the abuse. Have successfully abused this hitch for 4 years or more, but it finally sheared off the 5/8' attachment bolt. I plan on purchasing another hitch and abusing it, since this design makes it so easy to switch ball sizes, then to pin or to chain tow. But I never thought my "it doesn't move with out the safety chain" policy would be important on a lawn tractor trailer. It saved the day when the "un" expected finally occurred. "

Hitching post ATV trailer adapter

" Product is made of solid cask iron. Attaches easily, although I think it should have a longer bolt. Make sure you use a breaker bar when tightening, otherwise it may come loose. Like the way it give a little more height to the trailer ball that is mounted on top. Compact design compared to other adapters I've been looking at. "
