Decided to add a 2" receiver hitch to our JD 5055 E tractor. I can think of many uses for one . Primarily to have the option of moving winch from the XUV to tractor if needed .Plus it will make a good solid area to pull from . I'm not a big fan of pulling from the bucket especially side pulls. In the past at other courses I've seen quick attack bars or hydraulic lines ruined from improper hook ups .
using some 1/4 stock from the scrap pile .
Picked up a receiver hitch from Princess auto and using a 2" square tube stock to weld it to .
Leveling up plates to mark holes for drilling .
A little test fitting.
Welding everything together .
and install . Nice easy project .
We're also adding a 12v jump station .Made a bracket to wire to frame ground and starter .
If tractor is in need of a jump we won't have to remove battery covers and pull battery tray out for a jump . If a machine needs a jump out on the course this will make it quick and easy .
