I use the hitch with a platform that goes into the receiver. It is nice for picking up firewood and hauling around anything like bags of seeds or soil amendments. With the tractor’s 3-pt I can lower it close to the ground to load things onto it. I also use it with a ball to tow my 6 x 12 trailer around. Using the tractor’s 3-pt I can hook to the trailer without even getting off the tractor. This is quite useful if the trailer is heavily loaded and I can’t push it around on soft or uneven ground. Using the hitch with a trailer is much nicer than using a ball that is rigidly attached to the tractor for this reason. Overall I am very happy with the heavy hitch.
