Availability of 1-1/4-Inch Combo Bar for Hitch Fabrication on Antique Tractor


Hi! Ive been searching your sight for a class I or II - 1.25inch hitch on a flat plat that I can mount on an antique tractor. Could I email you some pictures of the mounting area of the tractor and you show me some hitch options? I think a corvette hitch that I cut the diagonals off is my best option but Id like your opinion and idea. Thanks!

I can offer you a better option for installing a 1-1/4-inch receiver tube on your antique tractor. Curt offers several lengths of their 1-1/4-inch combo bar, which is a raw steel product ready for weld-on installation.

Part # E-911 is 6-inches long, part # E-912 is 12-inches long and part # C49524 is 24-inches long.

One of these will cost far less than a custom-fit hitch. Also, if you used a custom hitch like the one for a Corvette any modifications would void the item's warranty, so you're better off saving some money by using a combo bar. All of these have a reinforcing collar around the end of the tube and a pre-drilled 1/2-inch hitch pin hole.

We do offer bolt-on 2-inch hitches made for installation on RV bumpers, such as # UF35-946401 from Ultra-Fab, but the 1-1/4-inch size is not offered in this type of product.
