This is the Ai2 products Rear Tie Down and Ball Plate. We developed this for people that don’t really need the rear receiver hitch but still want the tie down point. So this is the same main plate as the receiver hitch but no receiver option. We’ve added the hole for a standard ball hitch to be bolted in, or it can be used for a clevis as well.
The Ai2 products Rear Tie Down and Ball Plate is laser cut from .375” A36 plate, powder coated in the dark gray finish that we use on our other products for the BX, and is designed to fit all models of the BX family. The first several BX models that came out (we refer to them as the first generation – going back to approximately 1999/2000), can’t use the rear receiver hitch / tie down due to the placement of the 3-point hitch on these models. This Ai2 Products Rear Tie Down and Ball Plate however is designed to work on all BX machines, including the generation 1 models. This gives you two good tie down points of the 4 required by the DOT when hauling your tractor on public roads. Use our Front Tie Down Kit for the other end of the tractor and you’ll be covered. You will find this product to be built to last for years of use and abuse.
