Just picked this up today, I got it stuck on but I haven't had time to put on a implement.  The first disappointing thing was I broke one of the grips on the lever before I even got it out of the pickup, the other grip is about to break. They should of used a rubber type of a grip instead of a harder plastic grip. But other then that, the hitch looks nice and heavy. Can't wait to get my box blade stuck on.

Looks good.  I'm thinking pretty hard about getting one.

Looks like a neat tool! Someone made one of those for a GT some time back.

I remember seeing that. It was a Cat 0 sized one and I think it was for a JD GT if I recall.

I don't remember where I saw it, though! It was a scaled down version.

I always wanted to build one, but I figured it wouldn't turn out as good as a factory built one. I then got the gift certificate and thought why not. Hoping to play with it today if all goes well

Finally got a little work done on the Quick hitch and box blade. I need to goof with the top link pin on the box blade, it's a little to low so the box blade hangs on the top link hook and doesn't reach the bottom hooks. For now I took off the top link hook and used the U bracket thingy that came with the hitch. I got it all hooked up and started doing much needed box blade work on the road and driveway. I made one pass down the road to the end of our property (aprox 200ft). I went to turn around and noticed the tractor was sliding around and didn't want to turn. I thought it was because of the road was a little muddy in the shade but I quickly realized the front tire was flat. The bead was broke on one side and the tire was filled with mud. So I picked the front of the tractor off the ground with the loader and limped it back to the front yard. I need to do a little bit of grass work now but at least the tractor is at the house.

 

I got the front wheel pulled off and I got the tire removed. by then it was about dark so I am now waiting for the rim and tire to dry so I can knock the mud off. Hopefully I can get it all patched up tomorrow and get this box blading done before it gets to cold and freezes.

Nice setup. Glad you had a little fun before your tire decided to make you suffer.
