    Quick hitch refit

    Over the last week I have been refitting my bush hog to work with my new QH on my 4105. The cutter with out the QH would rub the tires when lifted up. I built clevis from 1/2" flat bar for the top and lower pins. I made it 3" wide on the inside I'm using cat 1/2 and 2/3 bushings and washers so it could still be used with out a QH.

    Nice job! That improvement will be appreciated for years to come!

    My only comment is the you might need to brace those lower mounts a little better against the vertical flat bar, unless there's something there that I cant see in the picture.

    That was my first thought also. Add some small gussets on both sides behind the lower mounts.

    The bracing was planed but overlooked. Y'all just saved me a big problem on down the road.
