The Titan Clamp on Trailer Receiver was one of the first attachments I bought besides the ones I got with my tractor. It has proved well worth the $69 I paid for it on Amazon and has become my favorite tool for moving trailers around.
Here are some of the specs on it:
- Standard 2” Receiver
- 2” Bucket Lip Gap
- Length: 17”
- Height: 7”
- Width: 2.5”
- Weight: 20 lbs
- Currently $77.95 on Amazon
And here’s a link to it on Amazon:
A couple of equivalent options:
The key to this thing staying on your bucket is the peice highlighted in orange in the picture below. It must sit behind the back of the bucket blade edge. If your bucket doesn’t have one, this receiver is not safe to use. Also if you have a tooth bar on your bucket, you may not be able to use this receiver.
Unfortunately, there is no good place to hook your safety chains on it, but I’ll fix that once my shop is built and I get a welder.
This type of clamp on receiver can sometimes pivot on the bucket, especially when you have a heavy load and are pulling and turning at the same time. Although this is normal, it will wear on the underside of your bucket over time. I have a fix for that too, but again, need shop, need welder. You might see this modification in a future video and post here.
One surprising thing about a front mounted trailer receiver is how easy it is to push and maneuver trailers. I think I prefer pushing a trailer to pulling it in a lot of cases.
So there you have it. If you have trailers that you frequently need to move around on your property, you might want to consider getting a clamp-on trailer receiver like this one.
