    Heavy hitch...regular or "super duty"?

    Heavy hitch owners, any thoughts on the more expensive "super duty" version? I was thinking of getting it just for the extra weight (though I don't know how much that is), but now I think it might be too much of a pain to put on and take off to be worth it.

    The one I'm looking at is the basic version that can only take eight small weights. I want something I can put on and take off by hand so I don't have to factor my ballast box into my implement storage strategy.

    I agree totally. Besides, those suitcase weights are kinda expensive . . .

    I have the super Heavy Hitch that holds 16 weights and wouldn't trade it for anything. I just remove the weights and then the Heavy Hitch. It weighs 50 pounds maybe. I can lift it no issues. Truth be told the Heavy Hitch never leaves the 3pt unless I have to hook up an implement

    Just to be clear - the standard Heavy Hitch that holds 8 weights. You can buy the same hitch that holds 8 weights and is a super duty. The only difference is the thickness of the steel that it is made of - 3/16" vs. 1/8".

    Then you have the hitch the holds 16 weights.

    There is also a hitch that holds 70# weights.

    Yes, that's what I'm asking about. Is there any point in getting the thicker one? It's not like the regular one is going to fall apart with 8 weights on it. I was thinking maybe it weighed a lot more and would be like getting one "free" weight. Thoughts?

    I couldn't find the shipping weights on the site. Try sending Greg an email and ask - he's very responsive - might even chime in here if he sees this thread.

    I think the standard would be fine unless you are planning on using ground engaging implements hooked to it.

    And...I'm dumb. I didn't even think about attaching implements. And now I'm buying the heavy duty.

    Yup - do it now and you won't have a chance to regret it later.

    I have the heavy duty small hitch (8 weights) I may be wrong but I think the heavy duty one also comes with hook. Which I have used several times. If you can lift the suit case weights I am pretty sure you can handle the hitch.

    Yes, the Super Duty version comes with the welded on chain hook on top of the receiver as well as the heavier 3/16" wall tubing. We do recommend the Super Duty for ground engaging attachments. The standard Super Duty hitch weighs in around 45 pounds.
