    Thanks Sixdogs! I think it is a keeper. Of course, I knew that when I saw it!

    I forgot to watch the hitch, but when I hit an old hidden large root or stump, it really gave me a shudder or as you stated.....chugging. Just from moving it around and on and off the trailer and unhitching it yesterday, I'd say eventually the hitch hole will need to be repaired or rebuilt. The edge of the hole that was welded up has distorted. That it and hitch welds are so ugly...........I mentioned remaking it to the welder. I would like to remake it with less gap between the upper and lower plates.

    Also, with me loading and unloading alone and having to unhitch and hitch up on the trailer............your hammerstrap idea coupled with a spring loaded lever attached to the pin and a length of rope to lift the pin would be a big plus. I have seen this setup on baggage tugs on the ramps at airports. Then you can lift the pin in the hole from your seat. As it is now, I have to stop with the front tires on the dovetail and the park brake will not hold alone in that small sweet spot that the pin is free. To hold my position, I lower the leading edge of the bucket into an angle of the dovetail and it holds me in position while I go back and install the pin. Very tedious that way. While doing this the disc is still chained to the front of the trailer. I did hook a string up to unhitch while loading. The lever on a hammer strap would alleviate having to get on and off the tractor

    Why not weld another thick plate on both insides of the hitch fork to lessen the area (Gap) in there and that will also give you a base for welding the elongated holes back round and the new holes in the added plate would strengthen the holes...1/2" plate should work..lessen the gap by an inch.

    Tom,
    It is hard to tell by the photos, but the top and lower plates have been heated and curved to fit the round "pivot" section of the hitch by someone that did a sloppy job. Hard to fit new plates to it. I want to cut it all off at the round piece and weld on a 3 inch block to it, then weld upper and lower new plates to the block.
    hugs, Brandi

    That's looking good! Did you try resting the bucket on the neck of the trailer?it would increase your pin weight but it shouldn't be to bad. I checked it out today. On the north side of the creeks it looks surprisingly good! On the south side that I hadn't under rushed yet its another story!

    I had a hitch situation like you mention and it needed to be squeezed together. If it's steel, heat and bend. if cast it's no dice. Mine was steel and not quite long enough so I had a shop cut off the old flat hitch pieces and weld on new ones that were 6 inches longer and then squeeze them together. I can get photos if you need but there is my old thread out there "cultimulcher" that deals with the before aspect. I needed help welding the 1/2" plate.

    Step two--not sure if you weld but if not you should learn MIG and get maybe a Lincoln SP175 or something like that. I'm a good hobby welder now and it's saved me a bundle and allows me to save a lot of legwork. I can only weld up to 1/4" or a little more and I love it. The guys in the welding area here are very helpful and you are sharp enough to be a good hobby welder.

    If you can get them, new decals would be sweet on that disc.

    One thing you need to put on your tractor if you don't already have them is safety break away on the remote hydraulics. If you loose a pin or break something on the hitch, you are going to break some hoses or worse break the couplings on the tractor.

    Not sure if someone mentioned it but the the gang bearings are trunnion type. This lets the disc gangs flex without putting undue stress on the bearings.

    I believe that the 20 series Mahindra's came with breakaway couplers.

    Looks Good Brandi !!!!

    One word of caution , over 26,000 lbs gross weight you need a CDL and D.O.T is cracking down.

    Good luck and GOD bless !!
