About Scion xA Trailer Hitches

Taking care of a large garden is a great responsibility. You have to care for your plants, fruit and vegetables daily. Aside from simply planting the flowers, you must also clear the soil, rake the leaves, feed the plants and de-weed when you’re removing old plants and bushes. Different pieces of equipment are used for different tasks when gardening. In order to make gardening easier, the use of a trailer is a great idea. Once you have a trailer, you just need one of the many Scion XA trailer hitches at CARiD to hook it to the XA. The right trailer hitch will be able to tow the weight you need for your gardening trailer. While some are basic, light weight trailer hitches, others are heavy and corrosion resistant for strong weather situations. A trailer for one’s gardening typically consists of seeds, plants, rubs, shovels, rakes, hoses, fertilizer, dirt and plant food amongst other things. Those working in a large garden may also have grass trimmers, seeders and feeders. Depending on the type of equipment that you use, a larger trailer may be needed.

There are 5 different classifications for trailer hitches. They’re Class I through Class V. Each has a different capacity in weight as well as specifications. Class I hitches are light-weight and can only handle loads that are less than 2000 lbs. The Universal Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier has a platform that’s 20x60 inches and has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. You can stack soil on the platform, seeds, fertilizer and other stackable gardening supplies. The platform is also big enough for small equipment. Class II trailer hitches can handle a total 3500 lbs. Anything less than 5000 lbs can be hauled by a Class III trailer hitch. Class IV trailer hitches are for large trailers that are less than 10000 lbs. Use a Class V trailer hitch to tow anything above 10000 lbs.
