food plots

Has anyone used the Ground Hog deer food plot tiller? Just got a 700-2 and I'm thinking of getting some add on's. Any idea's or tips would be appreciated. We've got some property in northern Mich. that I want to start putting in some food plots this spring. I'm new to UTV's and if I can save some head aches so much the better. Thanks much. PM's welcome

I wouldn't suggest it. At least not until you modify the receiver on the 700. These receivers are designed for loads that push down on the hitch NOT up. I read a one of the forums I read about someone ripping their receiver off using one of those, I personally have damaged mine by have the hitch get caught on rocks as the azz end drops off another rock.

Rust

Sure looks like a lot of rust in tubing.

don't let little things like that bother you, I'm more concerned with the the ones that hold water

I agree on the hitch being weak on upward pressure, the picture in the post above could be of my machine after I left a hitch with a 4 inch drop on and went through a steep ditch. Had moved my hauling trailer and just stupidly left the hitch in. Repaired it and have not had any issues pulling and yanking and using it at will.

How are guys beefing the receivers up so that they do stand up to rugged use?

I haven't fixed mine yet, I just messed it up a few weeks ago.

This is an old thread but I'll add to it anyway. Might help someone. I broke the welds on my receiver hitch on my 700-2. As others have said they don't tolerate upward force very well. What I found was the welds were pretty poor quality. When a weld separates between the weld metal and the parent material it indicates lack of fusion/a weld that went in too cold. I ground out the bad welds and rewelded the receiver tube. I used a 250 amp MIG welder so I had plenty of heat. I would not consider trying this repair with one of the 120V flux core welders. If you are going to do any welding on the frame disconnect the battery or better yet remove the computer. Stray welding currents can destroy the computer.
