    Default Tow hitch idea for Troy bilt Horse.

    Troy bilt used to make a tow hitch attachment for their larger PTO tillers. Something has always caught me as odd though. If you walk behind the tiller to turn it how in the heck can you turn it with a cart on the back? I thought maybe you could ride on the load in the trailer but then I thought that the connection between the tiller and the trailer would buckle. Thats when a crazy little Idea hit me. What about pushing a cart? At least on my 11hp Big red horse I can use the dozer blade pretty easily so why couldn't a hitch be put on the front to push a utility cart?
    Has anyone operated the troy bilt tiller with a hitch attachment? How well did it work? I've never seen pictures of one in action.

    I have the troy-bilt cart and the hitch that attaches onto the pto. I would ride in the cart when transporting empty, and when hauling, I would rotate the handles to the side for clearance from the cart.
    Basically, it was cumbersome to use. The cart works much better behind my lawn tractor.
    Pushing a cart might be hard to keep in a straight path.

    I used a common riding mower trailer behind a TB Horse for years. I lengthened the tongue about 3 feet. The front wall of the trailer box was the seat. Steer by pushing the handles sideways.

    Mine was almost identical to this one:

    The 2-wheel tractors pushing a cart usually have caster wheels on the cart and the cart cannot pivot in relation to the tractor.
