    Heavy Hitch dilema

    Mutton Power Equipment is now carrying Heavy Hitch and is offering free shipping. But the hitch I'd like, the dual receiver with the Universal Suitcase Weight Option isn't carried by Mutton. Thought I could save a few $ and support two GTT venders at the same time.
    I thought I'd use the top receiver for a tray or basket to hold stuff but don't want to give up the offset weight bracket. Should I spring for the extra $ for the top receiver from HH or go for the Super Duty Category 1 3-Pt Receiver Hitch with Weight Bracket through Mutton? How often does the top receiver get used by most of you?

    I built my own version and I have both a lower horizontal hitch and an upper vertical hitch. I then built a basket for it. I love mine and use it quite a bit.

    Here is the latest use.

    I called Muttons this morning although I didn't speak to Shane but someone else. That's how I found out they don't have the one I want. Maybe it's a new product for them and they don't have all HH's products yet.

    Just a thought - you could use any hitch basket from Tractor Supply or Harbor Freight in the horizontal hitch.

    One of the reasons I wanted the top hitch/basket was so I could put the chainsaw, loopers, etc in the basket and still tow the trailer while I am limbing trees.
