I think they modified the hitch to accommodate a HAY RAKE - and the round hitch allows you to remove the pin and rotate the rake into the travel position! FARM BUS?

Check your switches on the dash. One of them might fire it!

Looks like we have a lot of people who have never seen anything like that hitch.

I have seen one like it but it was home made.

I had a friend who could not back up a trailer. After several jackknifes with damage, he made a trailer that could not be jackknifed.

He made a trailer platform about 8' x 10'. He attached two swiveling wheels underneath the frame, near the back. They looked like big casters. The hitch was one piece of 3" (I think, it's been a long time ago) pipe. The hitch on his truck was sized so that the trailer hitch would slide inside it. The truck hitch had a hole for the pin just like a regular 2"x2" hitch. The trailer hitch had a vertical slot on each side instead of a hole so the trailer could rotate somewhat when the truck and trailer went over uneven ground. It had a jack on the front just like a regular trailer.

It worked pretty good except he made the hitch a rigid pipe at first. The problem with that was nothing would give if he drove over a speed bump or hole or un-level place. He also could not hitch or unhitch unless EVERYTHING was perfectly level. He solved that by hinging the pipe on the trailer.

Hopefully I have described the contraption well enough to give you all an idea of how it worked.

Richard Ramsey has a trailer like that. It is attached in two places via ball hitches to a cross bar that fits into the square receiver. The unit has a swivel so it can rotate to accommodate normal differences in the coach and trailer side to side level. It has castor wheels. It fits his golf cart sideways. Someone will have a picture from Flywheelers I suspect.

i'm going to guess it was for a motorcycle lift,take the pin out and the lift rotates down on one end and you drive the bike up,it rotates back level and you put the pin in.
