    I have a hitch mount spreader. Snowex 1575. I need to make it swing out of the way to load snowblowers. Anyone have any ideas?

    spreader mt.

    Sure, receiver bracket comes out of hitch makes right turn to end of the bumper (side), hinges to another tube runing back to the center (on top of) the tube coming out of hitch, where the spreader mounts. Last year I saw an INCREDIBLE gas grill designed for tailgate parties at The Home Depot with a mount exactly like this, and the grill was BIG and HEAVY you probably could search it and find one like this. Anyway, just an Idea.

    Well since Plowsite is paranoid about posting links to other sites, do a google search "snow ex swing mount" .

    There is a pretty trick set up for this on another snow site.

    Here is just one picture from the thread over there. There is more pics of it over there posted by GLS.

    thank you for the info, found the tread and thats what I am looking for. My spreader is 55lbs heavier than the one in the photo. It should work out fine.
