After helping out with some tee and collar aeration recently I found it a little cumbersome at times getting the trailer back on the tow vehicle . Rob and I where discussing an idea for a better system . Looking at the T0r0 trans pro 80 in front of us made total sense to apply the same set up .
Mocking up the new set up . The guys are all out getting the course ready for bed . Using the lift as the muscle to help move the trailer around made the job easy .
Had some square tube stock left over from the original build for supplies . Drilled a hole for a pin in a piece of 2" sq. tube stock and cut the back side out .
preparing the area for welding .
welded the plate at the point where the trailer would pivot . Might as well prime and paint it now while it's in a good position .
Welded on a grab handle to pull balanced trailer into place .
cut the original hitch off and weld to new tow bar . Cutting another 2" piece of stock and drilling a hole you can weld this piece to old tow bar so you can pin the two bars together when towing .
Hooked up in tow
and in tip .
Nice ,The crew will like the new set up for sure .
Bonded and strengthen the tailgate area.
Had time today to finish it up and paint . The side plates kick out to receive the aerator easier .
