In the past I have used the good old Caterpillar to move my heavily built homemade 6x10 trailer. Attempt one, easily spotted as a pass/fail method is still in place, along with the brand new, bolted together using leftover thick steel hitch LOL. The new hitch was fabbed last week and the top piece was added yesterday after the trial pull, which unlike the cheap aluminum bolt together angle iron, did not result in the trailer rolling away. lol!

How about pics. lol!

Yes, the shiny screws on the tractor end are self drilling/self tapping screws. They are holding up surprisingly well. Smile
I was goig to use them on the whole hinge but i had a couple heads break on the thick stuff so I drilled em out and used 1/4 in bolts on the hitch end.
The seat mount is just rigged for now, when I put the 444's new seat on the Craftsman seat will go on the Caterpillar, and I will put a small flatbed on the Caterpillar at that time also.
