HPX Gator Hitch and Control Box (Steel Bed) (Pre-2018)

Designed with Gators in Mind

Gator Hitches and Control Boxes are designed to work specifically with John Deere 3 cu ft Salt and Fertilizer Spreaders, as well as 5 cu ft Drop Spreaders. Each hitch features a spring-loaded mechanism to allow for quick spreader attachment and removal. The hitch can also be lowered to provide you with easy access for routine service.

The weather-resistant control box provides you with fingertip control of your spreader's functionality. One rocker switch turns the spreader on and off. 5 cu ft Drop Spreaders utilize a second rocker switch to activate the vibratory motor to help keep material flowing. The dial in the center of the box provides you with control of the spinner or rotor speed. Included with every control box is a wiring harness and hardware for convenient dash mounting.
