    suitcase weights on 3pt hitch?

    I filled out the paperwork to get a 2320 today. Now I am looking at various attachments to order. I will be ordering a Omni or heavy hitch hitch for it. Is there something that bolts the suitcase weight to the hitch or does it just rely on the weight to stay on the hitch? If it is just the weight, have you ever had one fall off going over bumps?

    I have an Omni hitch that I put eight weights on and secure with a tarp strap to keep them from rattling. No problem at all with them coming off. Hope you enjoy your new tractor.

    I have a homemade version that holds 8, no worries about the weights bouncing off whatsoever.

    Your should not have problem with the weights staying on. If they bounce off you are going way to fast...

    I built a bracket for my 3pt that held 4. Never had a problem keeping them on.

    Enjoy your new tractor!
