Rear mounted Grader Blade on Pickup/SUV

Anyone know of a way to use a 3 point Hitch grader Blade on the rear of an SUV or Pickup?? I want to grade my driveway and clear snow.

Thanks, Richard

You might want to check what is available at www.northerntools.com. Most farm stores sell cheap adapters for 2" receivers for about $50.00.

I am talking about adapting a 3 point hitch to my Excursion. Are you talking about a standard ball adapter?

That and the more expensive ones northern sells. Just go to northern and type in "3 point" and sort from more expensive to least.

The adapter I asked about originally is the reverse of the Northern 3 point adapter. The Northern unit puts a 2 " receiver on the back of a tractor that has a 3 point hitch mounting.

The adapter I want is mount a 3 point hitch grader blade on the rear of my Excursion. I have since made one - use it on my driveway and now offer similar units on ebay. Please look at ebay #7612644241 and you will better understand what I talking about.

That looks cool, but how well does it work? I think it'd be a PITA to get in and out everytime you wanted to raise and lower the blade

Maybe you could make a short video of it in use. I have a tractor but it looks like it would work. Hats off to you for actually engineering something you needed.

Hey, very cool! That last picture explains it the best, I hope you sell a ton of them :-)

I understand the manual part, if you are grading a long driveway, you only need to get out once, when you want to turn around, so no real need for a power up/down.
