    Does anyone know if someone sells a tarp made for towing behind a riding mower? I've had problems with tearing out the eyelets when I've tried towing a tarp with too much weight on it. I'm wanting to tow grass clippings from the backyard to the truck in front. Thanks

    they make vinyl tarps and canvas tarps. i have used heavy duty canvas drop clothes and put eyelets in them. i also made a tow cable out of cable and snap hooks so it pulls evenly
    and doesn't rip the eyelets

    you can get the canvas tarps @ TSC or any farming/family store.

    no i dont all i did was take some thin wire rope and loop it around the engine guard and put 4 snap hooks( whats on a dog leash) on it make sure u make it long enough that its not hitting the tires and the use a wire clap to join the 2 ends
