Pickup Tow Hitch
Iowa farmer Curt Marth, of Rockford, saves trips and valuable time during the busy season by towing his pickup behind other implements when he's driving to fields far away from the farmstead.
The tow hitch he developed attaches to the front tow hooks on his pickup, fastening with two pins. The 5-ft. long drawbar pivots 24 in. side to side for making turns, and pulls out 12 in. for ease of hook up.
When not needed, the hitch quickly detaches from the truck by removing two pins. Marth says his hitch fits on 1973-79 Chevy and GMC pickups and would probably fit other trucks as long as they have straight towhooks and power steering.
It cost him about $70 in materials to build the hitch.
He says he's looking for a manufacturer.
