ball hitch reciever?

Postby O~o\ » Fri May 04, 2018 2:34 pm

Have any of you welded a ball hitch reciever to your grader box?
I have a neighbor who has done this. It looks like a great way to move around a small trailer.

Will welding on the box weaken it?

My opinion, no, it won't weaken it. However, if room to weld it, why not drill a hole for it? Numerous ways it could be done. https://www.google.com/search?q=box+bla ... 20&bih=896

I drilled a hole for a towball on my grading blade so I could grade my drive whilst pulling a trailer of rock to do repairs as I graded. Perfect.

Thanks for your responses. I like the idea of bolting it on.
This is good because my welding is quite bad!
