I was looking for an alternative to a 3 point hitch ballast box on my Kubota BX2370. Loaded with sand, the ballast box had to be carried high enough to keep it from hitting the ground, effectively putting the counterbalance too high to be very effective. I bought the universal category 1 receiver hitch and offset suitcase weight bracket to replace the ballast box. I’ve added 440 pounds of Kubota suitcase weights. This arrangement is so much better than the ballast box. The hitch can remain all the way down with no ground clearance issues. The weight is lower to the ground and the tractor is much more stable. Being able to leave the weights in place and still use the hitch with a ball for trailer towing is simply awesome. Having to remove the ballast box and use a fixed ball was painful at best. Being able to set the ball at any height for various trailer tongue heights is also very handy.
I’m very impressed with the quality of the product and the customer service of Heavy Hitch.
Every time I use my tractor, I’m glad I bought this hitch…….
And a big thank you to Greg for all of his assistance and guidance.
