A receiver hitch that works.

Like everyone else I bought the generic receiver hitch from Northern Tool. Well, to my dismay, I was not happy with it. The big problem is once you have the hitch at the correct height the 3pt is not all the way up. This now provides the trailer tongue to be able to lift if the load becomes unbalanced. I gave away the purchased unit and made this one. It is way more versitile and safer.

I dig that homemade cable laying implement.
Interesting idea...most people just use a check-chain to the drawbar to control lifting. everything I have towed/moved with mine has been tongue heavy enough not to worry about so is a picture of mine I built years ago.
