I picked up a HF quick hitch a few months ago. I rarely have taken my by off since I've gotten my 4310 together and running. Bit I figured on the rare occasion I have it off, I'd like to try a quick hitch to attach my ballast weight onto. I've read plenty on the need for bushings on most quick hitches. So as I was building my ballast weight holder, I came up with the idea to bend up some pieces of 1/4" flat stock and weld them into the quick hitch hooks. I'm sure this isn't something new and others probably have done the same thing. But I figured I share anyways.
