    Anyone Use One Of These Bolt-on Receiver Hitches??

    Anyone have experience with this product? I thought I saw a pic here of one on the top of a loader, I suppose for a receiver/ball hitch. Not sure how it would work but if you need to move a trailer once in awhile and don't want to spend a few hundred to do so, this may be the answer.

    Thought?? Experience??

    I have one of those Ken's receiver hitch mounts on my bucket.
    I also put the optional bottom plate w/ shackle point on it to make it as rigid as possible. Plus you can put a shackle on it to hook the safety chains to.
    Looks like a JD factory part and works great.

    I bought this hitch from amazon to extend it out a little and drop the ball down to make it easier to grab the trailer tongue.

    Excellent. I'm a happy camper . I already have the hitch with a slight drop. I've used it with a receiver I clamp-on to the bucket, but find, because everything in uphill, the clamp can twist L or R as I push the trailer, not a comfortable feeling. I found I like pushing the trailer around and into one spot or another as it's much easier to maneuver.

    I have one of these...bolts into the rear frame of the tractor.. Works well for me...gives me the ability to hook up a trailer anytime. Yes, I have to get off of the seat to lower my trailers onto the hitch ball, which wouldn't need to happen with a bucket or 3 - pt hitch mounted receiver. But I figured that you have to dismount anyways to latch the trailer hitch before moving. I had enough hitches laying around that I have both size hitch balls and a clevis mounted.

    Good option, if you're looking for 3 pt, Heavy hitch may be something to consider as well. Very versatile with the weight bracket.

    I had that one on my 1025R. Loved it and would like to have the same thing on my 4066R. I purchased the flat plate receiver from KBOH and trying to find u-bolts to bolt it to my drawbar.
