Snowblower mount

Tried a search and came up unsuccessful. Are there any sort of baskets that may mount to a receiver hitch to transport a snowblower?
I just sold my truck with a plow, I have been caring for my family's driveways and still want to help my Aunt who lives really close by.
I would like to be able to bring my snowblower and I'm hoping for some pics/ideas/links..
thanks!
also, it's not a large snowblower, just an older 24" (I think) Toro. Removing the rear seat wouldn't be an option and a trailer may be too big of a pain in decent snowfalls. This is why I think a basket would be great, just don't know how much weight they can handle.

I can't swear to it but THINK it is limited by the hitch capacity/ TONGUE weight.....in other words about 500lbs.

I have one I traded for and have had well over 500lbs of dirt/ potting soil/ manure, in the basket. I live about 1.5 miles from Menard's...and do this frequently. IMO snow blower would be no problem.

For the search I used on google "basket/ trailer hitch"

Thanks. Of course I did things bass-ackwards. After searching this forum I then posted this thread and then Googled it. I found some on Amazon that interest me. Ya, I doubt my snowblower is even 100lbs so that shouldn't be an issue.

Sometimes I wonder how my mind works. The first thing I thought when I saw the title of your thread is that you were going to want to mount a snowblower like a plow! lmao . . . .
