figured id post a few pics on what i built to tow a trailer with my 110 or pull trees or pull anything without taking the hitch off.  ANd as most know when you put a ball on the normal hitch its usually way to low to do anything

Nice setup. When I got the GTV18 it had a rigged up ball that just slipped thru the hitch with no way to attach it. If you went over a hill or put too much on the back of the trailer it would come off.

Nice fab job on the hitch ball holder!! The no down pressure issue could bite you on a sleeve hitch when the load shifts off of the tongue. The way around this would be to set it up so that the hitch is all the way up  when you are using the ball. You could make some other arrangement to adjust hitch ball height if needed.  It is at a better height than the tractors rear hitch bracket for anything bigger than a garden cart.
