    John Deere Hitch?

    Hi Guys, I know several different manufactures make a rear hitch for there zero turns.
    Have any of you guys seen one or bought one for the John Deere Zero turns?

    I had this same hitch on a DeereZ I used to own.

    Yes, but if it's painted John Deere green, it's $20 more.
    Seriously, go get yourself a nice hunk of angle iron for about 2 bucks, bolt it on, and your ready to go.

    I made mine. I use it to keep the Z-Trak down on the trailer and also to pull fertilizer cart.

    Anyone put a hitch on the back of a Exmark Lazer Z to pull a spreader? Have any pics? There is not a place to mount it in the center low enough it seems to me.

    I made one out of angle iron. I have about $1.50 in it. Works great. Its on my Lazer HP.

    Did you pay your dealer $30 for the hitch in the picture?
    Next time you bring the family down to Disney World let me know, I got some swampland I'd like to show you that you might be interested in.
