    3pt trailer hitch, another one. ;)

    Threw this together last summer with stuff I had laying around. Works great for moving my 6000# RV and also have used to to pull a few trees. Its light enough that I can easily pick it up and drop it onto my quick hitch. One of these days I'll get around to painting it,....probably. ;)

    Curious to what the hitch weight is on that RV. And what size tractor are you using?

    Tractor is a 2720. Height weight? Probably 500-600#s. Works fine for jockeying it around the yard but I won't be going up and down and steep hills with it.

    Hitch weight is usually around 10% of the total weight so 6000# would be 600#

    I like it.
    I built one similar to this for my orange tractor, but it stayed on the tractor when I sold it. Going to build one this Spring for the 401B.
    Thanks for posting.
