Just received the Heavy Hitch. I wanted a heavy duty piece of equipment and this is indeed heavy duty. As a welder I can appreciate the excellent beads on this hitch. Also, the John Deere green paint is applied flawlessly. It has a nice gloss to the paint. Too the paint won’t remain perfect for long as I get into more plowing…LOL. This whole arrangement , including the ripper/potato plow sits well on my 1025R. If you want an arrangement that is heavy steel and will rip the ground with no chance of bending or breaking than this is the one to have.
