Can a Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with a Kawasaki Mule for Off-the-Road Towing


I have a 2inch ball mount receiver welded by Weagant Farm Equipment dealer to front of Kawasaki 4010 Mule Transporter. Power from the Mule to move the weight of fully loaded boat trailer not an issue. My thought is to use this just to adjust location of boat and trailer on property and storage and not for open road towing. Mount is lower to the ground than standard receiver mount installs on larger vehicleswith higher ground clearance. As is, I need to jack up with separate floor jack the trailer in order to rotate the trailer wheel jack to ground clearance before releasing tongue from current hitch mount. Any reason why the Roadmaster 8inch hi-lo 2inch adapter ball mount would not be the solution? Im good for winter, so no hurry required for a response. Just researching a solution before Spring opening. :

If the trailer has a regular coupler that fits on a ball then the best solution is a ball mount with the proper rise. I really cannot recommend using any of the High-Low adapters for anything other than flat towing a vehicle, even if it could work.

But it sound like a ball mount with the proper rise is the ideal solution. The ball mount we have with the most rise is # AMSC12. It has 10-3/4 inches rise. But something like # 80248 with 9-3/4 inches might be better. I have included a link to an FAQ article on measuring for the correct rise/drop.
