Made this many years ago from two, 2" couplers bolted to a piece of lightweight tubing.

I don't remember now why the TORO wasn't running, but I pushed it into the shop:

Other than this instance, what kind of service have you had from the Toro 328D? I've been considering one. Concerned with parts cost, availability and longevity.

I used to have on like that. Good for getting someone unstuck, too, as you can push and pull. I had it in mind for off-road recovery, too, but never used it.

A makeshift one was used for road towing about 50 miles when someone else on an off-road trip broke down.

I is a 2004 that I got from Proturf in Tulsa OK, in May of 2014, so it was 10 years old when I got it. I have only put 105 hours on it, no serious problems.

Don't know about parts cost, but they are available on eBay and from TORO. Longevity is good as my loader put together is 26 years old and still going strong.

Have you seen the "any groundsmaster fans" thread? http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/...master-fans-here-post4110826.html#post4110826

Here it is with the 72 inch recycle deck:

Used the Push/Pull Pole to pull the EV out of the shop and push it over to the water hydrant.

Thought I would bump this old thread since I didn't mention in the previous post why I moved the Electric Vehicle over to the water hydrant.

I had just removed the 8 old worn out deep cycle batteries and the trays. Then needed to wash out the dirt and corrosion.

I have one with the trailer hitch on one end and the other has a clevis so that I can hook onto my tractor to move stuff around. It works very well!

I need one like that. Might have to put a receiver on one end to be able to swap a clevis and ball coupler.
