Hitch Cart Lets Horses Pull PTO Drive Equipment
The hitch cart's 3-pt. accepts Cat. 1 tractor equipment. The ground driven pto turns at 540 rpm (traveling at 3 mph) and features two No. 60 chains driven off each wheel. The chains run to a differential. A V-belt connects the differential to a right angle gearbox.
Several dozen small-tractor implements are available commercially (new or used) for mounting on the new horse-drawn hitch cart, including 5-ft. sickle mowers, 4-ft. rotary mowers, manure spreaders and fertilizer spreaders. The 3-pt.'s hydraulic pump can be powered manually or by a 12-V. battery.
The 3-pt. hitch cart sells for $1,495, and the bolt-on pto unit for right at $1,300.
