I have a 2015 450 L outlander, I would like to mount a trailer hitch to the front so that I can easily move my Jon boat around and put it in the shed. It is way too difficult for me to try to back it up without mirrors, my head doesn’t rotate far enough around. A front hitch would be cake. Does anyone make one, my searches all come up for a rear hitch.

Yes, it’s a G2. I don’t know why but when I look for something it never shows want. Thanks for the link. There are others showing that I can look at. $92 is awful steep for that thing though. Geeze. 😳

Mine’s a 450, not a 500. As far as I know there is no 500, there is a 450 and a 570. Correct?

Your still a L chassis it will not mount up probably... the winch mount between the non L and L are slightly different. I have both chassis and u can see the difference when side by side

Why not just toss on a mirror or 2

It is a heck of a lot easier to just drive the boat right into the shed. I actually have a hitch on my lawn mower but it doesn’t have enough ass to push the boat around and traction is a problem too.

From the picture it sure looks like it would work just fine. here is where it would mount, can you post a picture of the difference?

When I first looked at the picture I was looking at it and said it slops the wrong way but, then I realized I was looking at it backwards.

Practice.... does not matter what I'm on can back it in first shot.... would not want all that weight on the front of my machine.. add some weight to your lawnmower
