Didn't work out for my needs but may work for you
on October 8, 2013
This will not come with the ball...I read through the description and still thought the ball would be included. Anyway, it is well made, heavy duty, and versatile. It can also connect to my garden trailer which has a pin mount and pull something with a cable and hook if I like. The ball bolt leaves very little room if you wanted to place a hook onto the lower ring...design flaw on their part. The bolt that connects this to whatever you have is 3/4 inch diameter...that's a big hole needed to accommodate this guy. I got lucky, after seeing the bolt I thought I would need to drill out a larger hole but, all was good. I can see this being an issue for some tractors. Another issue may be this ball hitch will be too low to pull the rented log splitter around my property and that's the only reason I bought this thing. If you want to spend more money, they do make these extended higher for low tractors like mine. I'll give an update.
UPDATE: as said above the install was easy... but, It does not stay put as others said even with the locking washer provided. Also, due to the design it puts a lot of downward pressure on my tractor where this thing mounts onto. The end result has been a bent plate where this mounts to, fixable but this is worthless and I can't use it. Even pulling a log splitter was a pain. If you would like I have pics to post on here, just ask :)
