Hitch Makes It Easy To Tow ATV
Alan Brule, Crookston, Minn., made a hitch to tow his 4-wheel ATV behind his tractor, pickup, grain drill, field cultivator, and other equipment.
  The hitch is made from telescoping tubing. One end of the hitch attaches to a metal bracket that bolts to the front part of the ATV frame. A hitch pin goes through the hitch as well as the bracket and is secured by a cotter pin. The other end of the tubing is pinned to a clevis that attaches to the implement.
  "It's a simple idea but it really comes in handy," says Brule. "I'm usually alone in my fields which are scattered out, so I use it all the time. I've even pulled it behind my pickup at speeds up to 55 mph. When I get to the field I drop off the equipment and ride the ATV back home to get whatever else I need. The hitch detaches in just a few seconds. I bought about $40 worth of steel to put it together. I pull my drill lengthwise down the road. The markers on my grain drill stick out kind of far, but the hitch on the ATV telescopes so there's plenty of clearance."
