ATV garbage hauler details

installing a 2x6 platform on the ATV hitch receiver

First I placed a 3.5 foot 2x6 on top of the hitch height adjuster and traced the square hole.

Then I cut the hole out so it sungs onto the metal with a short support on each bottom side.

10 inch decking boards go on the sides to act as a wall and to have a place for the eye bolts where the bungee cord gets secured.

19 inch decking boards are used as the two extended supports with a 2x4 to level it out.
