    I purchased a new hp 56/27 this spring is it possible to put a plate on this inut to pull an aerator. I had one on my old full -size but did not think about it when i bought this year.

    gaither,

    We offer a hitch kit that will fit on your unit. I believe the part number is 1-651234, but your dealer will be able to verify that.

    Later,
    Casey

    or, if you are handy with a chop saw and a drill press you can cut a piece of angle iron to the desired length, drill a hole for the hitch mount or a ball, and then bolt it somewhere to the rear near the weight.

    When I had mine I got class 2 hitch and draw bar from a junk yard and used "u" clamps and clamped to the rear frame rails. I used it to pull a 200G boomless spray tank and I also used it mount my lesco 80lb 12v spreader...It seemed to be a good setup and when I sold machine at 1500 hours I did not notice any cracks or stretched bolts, ect....
