Sure thing! I don’t remember the measurements right off hand, but I’ll measure it out and post soon.

Measurements are in the pictures. Feel free to ask any questions if something is unclear. I pulled the tape starting with the end that the hole is on. Then continued one step at a time until the ball side.
It’s made of 2” aluminum sq. tubing 3/16” wall thickness. The anlegles are 22-1/2* except for the final angle behind the ball, that is 45*. The doubler plate the ball is mounted on is 3/8” thick.
Made it light weight and not heavy duty on purpose. This way it is guaranteed that I will not use it for anything other than the log splitter, not even once lol.
