Category 1 3-Pt. Hitch to 2in. Receiver Adapter
Not Strong Enough
I purchased this to move trailers around my farm. This device does make the process a lot easier, however the implement is just not made strong enough. This is probably why there is not a weight capacity listed. The brackets for the 3 point hitch, top link, and braces at the corners are very thick and heavy duty steel. However, the main square tubing of the implement is very thin tube steel. I used it to move a 3 ton feed bin, that was only 3/4 full, using the receiver hitch and a clevis hitch, as soon as I went to raise the trailer tongue with my tractors 3 point hitch system, the bottom piece of steel with the receiver hitch twisted. I would only use this to move light and or empty trailers.

Category 1 3pt hitch to 2 in. receiver adapter
This product worked flawlessly. I used it to tow a trailer in the Memorial Day Parade.

Applied this a new Kubota. Easily attached. Makes moving my trailer and boat a very easy job.

Had to Drill It Out Before I Could Use It...
Hitch pin hole in 2" receiver was drilled at an angle at factory--thus I could not fit pin through. Had to drill out to a larger diameter to accept the pin. Pain in the butt, but quicker than sending back and getting another.
Otherwise works as advertised.

Very well built and more handy than first thought. Price was better than any other location.

This item appears to be well built and plenty heavy for uses intended. I plan to modify it by adding 2 more receivers and then able to attach spears for large hay bale moving. Finish is very heavy powder coat. I only wish the ball was not welded on and not changeable.

Unit is well made. Sturdier than some others I had looked at. They were made from angle iron, this unit used channel and braces at all corners. Highly recommend this unit for occasional use. My tractor has Cat.2 3 point but this worked fine with inserts.

Works fine, missing one small feature.
Works fine. One feature I wish it did have is a place to hook the chains of the trailer. Other than that, it works great and is very sturdy.

This 3 point attachment will be a starting point for a small carry all for my 1023JD. Very happy with the quality and strength for the price.

I purchased this 3 point tow hitch for more than moving trailers, but I use it for that too. I use it mostly for dragging logs from a wood lot. I welded on two grab hooks, one on each of the uprights. Between those and the trailer balls I haven't found anything I can't hook up to and go. I gave it a four just because it does seem light duty, but so far it's held up well. For the price I figured the gamble was minor and it's paid for itself already.
