    I need to do something like that only longer. The hitch on the pull behind mower hits the tires on a sharp corner so I need a drawbar that hangs out behind the tires.

    Build a mount for a swinging drawbar. Then you can even offset the mower when mowing ditch banks or around trees.

    This is how it looks mounted. I built it thinking it would be oriented 180 degrees from how it is mounted. I looked at some pics online before I realized it would of been wrong to have the hitch so high up if I had mounted it opposite of how it looks in the pics. Oh yeah I almost forgot. I had an Ace hardware store coupon get $5.00 off when you spend $5.00 or more. I purchased the hardware to mount it with that coupon and was short by about $0.25. The nice lady helping me find the hardware was helping the other nice lady at the register and pointed out that the coupon would not work until the purchase amount was at least $5.00. She asked if I liked candy. They had $0.33 cent candies, I think it was some kind of butterscotch or caramel. Slightly soft. So I got one to get to exceed the $5.00 then gave the candy to the nice lady that helped with finding the hardware. It seemed like the right thing to do.

    Or a tall goose neck so the tractor can turn 360 under the hitch. The hitch on the pull behind is already offset to run beside my 48" belly mount.

    Because I could

    Mostly because of the gap at the top and bottom of the gussets. They were shaped more like a 5 sided baseball diamond home plate with little notches at the top and bottom. I wanted to get some hot glue on the top edge of the gussets and drag it down to the bottom to finish it off. I know it’s not the best looking welds and I over did it but I don’t get much practice so I tend to go all out and weld up every nook and cranny when I can.

I'll stick with the 48" mower under the tractor for trimming around the grain bins, and the Swisher pull behind adds another ( I think)67". You can't make a 90 degree turn without hitting the tires as it is, but I really like the time savings I'm getting with the pull behind. My mowing time drops from 10 to 11 hrs down to 3 or 4.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Today's project is some trailer chocks for the wife's Spyder. Had to take some extra precautions due to the galvanized angle but it was perfect for what I wanted and had it laying around. Happy with the results as it is an off the cuff design. I will bolt them down after paint.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    Made a rear hitch for my Husky (MTD) garden tractor.

    Hitch hangs from the factory shoulder bolts on the sides that are used to attach factory rear ground engaging attachments. Single bolt at the bottom at the old hitch pin location anchors hitch in place. Added additional hitch pin hole to still be able to pull the small garden trailer. Used some robust angle I had laying around and bought the hitch receiver.

    Design was completely by eye and continuous process of cut and removal. Now onwards to blasting, prime, and paint.

    Hitch is quite stout!

    That hitch looks way to stout for that Lawn Tractor, never the less it looks good "thumbs up". It won't surprise me none if you burn up a belt or two as well as the transmission on that thing if you over load it, especially on any type of grade like a driveway, grassy knowl etc.

    I've moved 50 ft grain augers with mine... the boat and motor.... even that pull behind will make me spin out on a slope. I think lack of traction is what saves the belts.
    Too much weight will likely bend or break back axles first.

    Got it done just in time, not much meat left on the rusted pipes.

    We have a smallish utility trailer that wife wants to pull around our parcel to collect limbs and brush so no huge loads anticipated. I plan to use the receiver to also mount a sprayer.

    I hope shes better at backing a trailer than Mrs. B. Little lawn cart trailers are tough for experienced backers. She is not good at it, had a few mishaps.
    She wanted a wagon in stead. I tried to explain that'll be even harder to back. She persisted. First attempt, she broke the tongue. Lately she uses a loader on a utility tractor.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    larry you could consider a two point hitch with turnable trailer wheels like a leaf vacuum

    when backing, the trailer turns the way you turn the wheel... might need a revamp of your trailer but will eliminate the bent tongue problem

    Looks like Impressive welding.

    Do they xray the welds or inspect?

    I welded it to my WPS as though it was to be x-rayed, like I always do. Our Australian Standard for Pressure Pipe Welding AS4041 says that for Class 1 duty (which ammonia duty falls into) 5% of welds in each size shall be x-rayed unless defects are found that would increase shots to 50%. In this case, my customer (who keeps a register of weld and x-ray history) determined that I had not increased the number of welds that would cause the total register to fall below the 5% mark so deemed x-rays were not needed to maintain compliance. There was a pressure/leak test performed by the customer and the system put back into service.

    May be a grey area but doesn't bother me because the welding went well. Good prep. No ammonia leaking into the weld zone. The purge was good, no green spitting. No sign of sugaring in the root etc. I have confidence in my welds, been doing this a long time.

    Here's what I cut out, not much meat left...

    In 1992 I was on a fertilizer plant overhaul, we were working 80' up on the elevator tower for the dry stuff when they had a rupture in the ammonia plant. We were told to stay high and wait for the cloud (heavier than air) dissipate. Thank fully no one was hurt. That is bad stuff.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I used to drop trailers at the Safeway docks in Denver when I was a kid. I believe that the cold plant was ammonia refrigerated, and I couldn't swear to it, but I'm thinking some of their older reefer trailers were ammonia cooled..............never asked, but I noticed tanks on them, and no diesel powered reefers in the nose. For all I know, they might have been diesel units just mounted under the trailers. Safeway wasn't a good place to go, back in the day, if you weren't a union driver. They treated you like dirt. That all changed when they fired all the drivers, and went to contractors to pull the loads.

    I ran the mountains a lot when I was a kid. If they knew you had the experience, it was easy to get a job, and the money was better. I remember Safeway, and Rio Grande, were the top mountain haulers back in the day. You had to be almost born into the family to get on with those outfits............now they're all gone.

    When I was a little boy, I used to love the sound of those Jakes coming off the high passes............all the way to the bottom. When I got older, and was the moron behind the wheel............I didn't like that sound so much anymore Ride the Jake all the way down, with your eye on the brake pressure application gauge.........10psi, and not an ounce more, or you'd light the brakes on fire.

    I got out of the mountains just about the time the IH Eagle's came out, with the Cummins 400..........that thing would run all the way to the bottom without hardly touching the brakes. Things changed that fast. I never fully trusted them though. I'd been schooled on the same gear down, as the same gear ya ran up. And the little motors I ran would run up the hill at about 12mph...........and that's how fast you came down. The big engines would fly up the hill, and hold you back going down........but I never thought it was fully safe.............sht can go wrong. Drop a driveline, and it all comes down to whether the brakes will hold you..........that never changed.

    We had an ice plant in the mine here that ammonia charged rfrigeration, you could ALWAYS smell a little ammonia around that place, my uncle was the senior AC guy & he hated that ice plant.
