Front hitch with push plates?

    OK. So I have been moving trailers in and out of hangers lately. Seems to me that some of these would be FAR easier to push around airplanes with a front hitch. however since I have push plates on for my plow I don't think I can just slap a hitch in the middle of the truck.

    Has anyone fabricated a from mounted hitch that mounts into the push plates? if so I would love some pictures?

    Thanks

    Looks like someone has done this. I would like to know how anyone who has worked out the mounting pins, etc? Did you get just a junk plow and cut off the insert tabs? Or did yo fabricate from the start?


    Thanks again.

    I purchased a plow off a guy who fabbed his own pushbar/winch combo that mounted to his Fisher Push Plates. All he did was get a MM1 headgear and remove the top half of it (the part that holds the triangle and lights). He then welded a plate and extra metal to create a push bar on top of the MM1 headgear and bolted up the winch. He said it works great for hunting and pulling the truck out when he got stuck.

    Thanks. I was thinking the same thing. A swiss army front piece when the plow is stored. Personally if someone could put one in production at a reasonnablle price, they could probably make themselves a fair check at the end of the week. :)
