Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judy Awesome! Fits Perfectly! Highly recommend this.
This hitch plate was for my Gravely 48 zero turn, it fit in the pre-drilled holes on the back of the mower. We hooked up a small dumper to the hitch and we do not need a wheelbarrow anymore. We save time, labor and money using this. I recommend that before you buy this that you check where the holes are in the back of the mower and to make sure they will line up, some of the other hitch plates that others sell have slots to adjust the bolts one way or the other but I think the one that fits the bolt holes on the mower will be better and stay tight. We are very pleased with this item.

I have not had the opportunity to use the hitch, but install was very easy and product was received on time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCustomer Fits Gravely ZT HD 52"
This hitch will fit the Gravely ZT HD 52" exactly. The muffler guard has to be removed to install it, but it's not difficult.
The picture shown is NOT what the hitch looks like. It is similar to the Ariens hitch shown for the Zoom 34". There is a backing plate (not shown) included for extra strength. There are 2 different sets of bolts included (4 short ones and 4 long ones) for mounting on other models without the muffler cage.
This hitch is solid and well machined. The listed tongue weight maximum is 50 lbs and the listed tow weight maximum is 500 lbs. From the looks of it, I'd guess that this hitch could handle twice those maximums (but the muffler cage might not!). Home Depot has the best price around for this hitch, so if you need one, get it!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ken412 Trailer Hitch for Max Zoom Zero-Turn Mowers
Installing the plate required cutting it to fit, Very Difficult ! Then the hole in the plate for the Ball is too small have yet to find a Ball that will fit......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tubular031 Great hitch
I bought this to put on my max zoom 60 inch zturn. You have to remove the exhaust cage to attach the hitch and plate. It bolts to the exhaust cage. I needed to grind down the lip on the back plate of the hitch to get it to clear the muffler. No big deal with the angle grinder. I now use the zturn to pull an electric sprayer and a swisher mower. Works awesome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hokie 2560 Hitch
Excellent hitch, easy to install, and according to the enclosed instructions, fits several different Gravely and Ariens model mowers. The measurement specifications on the web site are confusing. I measure the hitch length (end to end) to be 12 1/2 to 13 inches not 21 as listed on the web. (typo??) Also the height and width are suspect.

If you have a Areins Max Zoom mower and want a hitch, this is the only way to go. There is no frame near the rear of the mower. So, the hitch has to mount to the muffler guard. This hitch distributes the wieght on the guard as well as possible. You will never be able to fabricate anything better than this, or for less money.
