ATV Hitch Pulls Garbage Cans Down Driveway
“We have a steep driveway that can get real icy during the winter, so after I took a nasty fall last winter, my son Dave decided to build a hitch to fit our ATV and other vehicles. It lets us pull 2 garbage cans at a time behind any vehicle equipped with a receiver hitch,” says Jack Brinkhaus, Shakopee, Minn.
    The plasma-cut hitch is made from powder coated steel for durability and consists of an upright and cross arm, which bolts onto another upright that’s welded to a 2-in. sq. tube. Four small carriage bolts can be used to adjust the hitch up or down. A carabiner is attached at each end of the arm and clips onto the garbage can handle.
    “We just tilt the garbage cans down and hook the handles onto the carabiners,” says Brinkhaus.
