Yes I have used them before. However we are talking an impliment to work behind an ATV. So I need a desinge feesable for that. If I wanted one for behind a tractor I would build one like this.

So I need Ideas. What is workable?

I like this rigging better.

Have this same hitch on everything: Polaras, Ez-Go, Cushman. The vevicals may be inadiquit most-time; but, can still move an empty wagon or trailer or wood splitter. This method saves hunting switching hardware. Anything/everything fastens with a simple hitch-pin/hair-pin.

BUT, I'm open to new/better.

What I am saying that if Deadcarp is right about the teter toter effect means a desinge error. Hitch type isnt going to make much differance as long as it is a propperly fitted hitch. If it comes un hooked it will still take your jaw off. as I see it the fulcrum point is the issue. So I asking what design well work?

Michael: This what I wanted to show ya. An extra safe hitch. Got these on everything except gooseneck trailers. They're only bed fit balls we use.

Hey Fern, I have that type of hitch on a small trailer that I use to haul stuff around the place, everything else is a 1 7/8's ball hitch, including the sawmill. It is a little bit of a hassle changing from the ball to the pin, but, my Polaris hitch has two holes in it, and I am going to try using the second hole for the pin hitch trailer while leaving the ball on, and see if it works.
I personally prefer the pin hitches, but I do occasionally take stuff down the road, and the ball hitch seems like a better way to go when doing that.My buddy towed the log arch out here, about ten miles from his hous, and doesn't recommend towing it on the road. The sawmill has to be road worthy, and it is the biggest thing I tow, about 24' and 1200 lbs. I do move it around my place with the Polaris, but not up any big hills...:).
I also just thought that it might not be a bad idea to change the splitter and arch to a pin hitch, use the primay towing hole for that on the Polaris, and use the ball hitch in the secondary hole, as I don't move the sawmill as much as I use the other toys. Thanks for your input.
