    Hi guys,
    Just wondering if anyone knows how much a frame with the hitch should cost. I have the spreader and controls, all I need is the mount. Local dealer said 500. Is there any other way to mount it besides the in bed truss mount. I am in columbus ohio if any one has one or knows a good price on one info is appreciated.
    thanks, shawn

    I have a Western Pro Flo. I bought this used with out the mount. Do you a trailer hitch? If you do go to your nearest truck supply and ask for a Pintle Hitch Mount with 8 holes. ( the plat is 7 1/2" + 5" The shaft will fit a 2" receiver.) Step 1: Bolt this to the bottom ( There is 4 bolts the bolt the plastic guard to the steel) Take the bolts out and add this.
    Step 2: Pick up some 1 1/2" + 1 1/2" angle iron 4' long. Bolt that to the highest point on the spreader, drill the other end of the angle iron and drill the side of the receiver and put sheer pins through the hole ( or you can bolt it) I'll try to get a picture of this for you. The total cost of this was aprox. $60.00. Here is a link on ebay witht he pintle hitch mount. Hope this helps. This worked great for me. If you are handy you can make this work. Good luck Rich
