Here is what we are currently building at our shop. We have complete 1 & it is being used currently, and are just finishing up 2 more. We will most likely be building 10 more. The customer wanted a hitch that was bulkier & stronger than a locally sourced cheap alternative. He uses them on compact CAT 1 tractors that pull fruit bin trailers for cherry harvest.
An operator can more easily load/unload/hook up to trailers running the hitch off 3 point. Also, this places the pivot point of the trailer "further back" from the tractor, allowing for tighter turns without binding & tire rub.
The builder is grinding welded surfaces to a "v" prior to welding. He is making 2 passes with 1/8" 6013 on our bobcat 250.
Try 7018 jet on those welds, it will smooth them up real nice.
6013 will run smooth with a little more heat.
Your welds look cold around the toes.
