#62 – 3 Point Hitch Receiver – Heavy Hitch vs Amazon

#62 – 3 Point Hitch Receiver – Heavy Hitch vs Amazon

The USA made 3 point hitch receiver / adapter from heavyhitch.com is strong, heavy, and really well made. It’s everything you would expect in a quality product. The Amazon “7Blacksmiths” 3 point hitch receiver is priced considerably less. Do you get what you pay for? Usually. There are some key differences, but is the Heavy Hitch worth more than 3 times the cost? You’ll have to decide for yourself. This is certainly not a Heavy Hitch review or an Amazon 3 point hitch receiver review. Hopefully it will give you a little insight on both products. Thanks for watching. I’m really glad you’re here! -Ed

    But you bought a kubota tractor. Sure they are assembled in the USA. It’s a Japanese company with the moneys going to Japan. Yes I agree that we all should buy American made. We should seek out American own business’s as well. Good video. Informative thanks

  2. zx7miller on August 2, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    How was it pulling the travel trailer with the 3pt hitch?

  3. Michael Horner on August 2, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Great video. Thank you for your comparison. Love your buy American philosophy and agree wholeheartedly with your analysis.

    Would have been nice to actually had seen them work.

    I prefer to pay more up-front to buy the superior product, but there of course is a limit to how much more one would be willing to pay, because improvements in quality and function tend to exhibit diminishing returns after a certain point

  7. larry mcabee on August 2, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    Mostly because of government American products are too high and China products are cheaper because they are working their people for slave wages…….. I had and friend years ago that would say take care of yourself because no one else will

  8. Henry Henry on August 2, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    As soon as u said quick hitch adaptable I knew wich one I would get that’s the whole point to me to move a trailer faster then getting my truck and move it

  9. Wayne Steffen on August 2, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    I have a heavy hitch with offset design for adding weights. I have 4 70 & 4 41 pound weights for a total of 440 plus the hitch to close to 500 pounds of weight with that you are starting to get mild lawn marks. I think the strong Heavy Hitch is the real deal. I wouldn’t deal with the China made one. If you really need to save money don’t buy any and see where that gets you Ed. I have many Heavy Hitch products and am very happy with all. No complaints!

  10. Brett Robertson on August 2, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    You got to remember Chinese labor could very well be slave labor. Why support an economy from a regime that oppresses its people and makes Covid-19 to distribute around the world.

    Years ago Made in America would have been a bonus for me, now….how do I know the guy who welded this wasn’t rushing to catch a flight to Dallas to welcome JFK back to be Trump’s new running mate.

  12. Tales_of_the_crypto on August 2, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks for the great information, looking for a 3 point hitch for my tractor now! 👍

  13. Murray MacNeill on August 2, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    I notice that you did not try the black unit on the quick hitch. In the video, it appears to be taller than the heavy hitch. I would think that would make it to be a better fit. If it does fit, since you are doing a comparison, that should be shown or at least stated. Just to be fair.

  14. Rich Rogers on August 2, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Enjoyed the video

  15. James Novaes on August 2, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    Buy American as often as you can. Thanks for the review.

  16. Jerry Henry on August 2, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    You might want to look at Pat’s Quick hitch. It’s not as quick and easy as the standard quick but because it is adjustable it will fit quick hitch and non-quick hitch compatible implements and attachments.

    Like the show, thanks.

    Thank You

  19. Cajunnathan on August 2, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Take your quick receiver off your tractor and hook the heavy hitch directly to the 3-point hitch

  20. * on August 2, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Friends don’t let friends buy Chinese.

  21. Moak Moak on August 2, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    Ken bolt-on has a different hook that has a off set to it that will space the top hook out and fix that issue. I bought one for my front loader 3pt
    adapter plate

  22. Kopplin family on August 2, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    I’ve had the $70 amazon hitch for going on 6 years and I have more than used and abused it. Still I have had no issues with it.

  23. Michael Farve on August 2, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Another great video and here earlier today just painted a trailer Hitch adapter for my tractor L38 kubota. Its probably about 70 lbs , I built it myself out of heavy gauge 2in tubing. Wish I could show you a video of it. Once again tks ole buddy

  24. Jorge Posadas on August 2, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Let me give you a rude awakening, if you think when you go to a hardware store that you’re buying American steel, you are so wrong because we import our steal to China and import Chinese steel to America, so when the steel is stamped made in China, it’s actually our steel that you’re buying.

    That’s has been mentioned many times in Internet – not to use these bucket atachments to move heavy trailers – brakes are only on rear wheels and heavy load on bucket maks less traction on rear wheels… less traction on rear wheels = good recipie for disaster. Choice to support locals to pay more – I see no reason at all – I support only my wallet – make it or buy cheep why pay more for same stuff?

  27. Building a Legacy on August 3, 2022 at 12:00 am

    I agree with everything you said about the quality between the two hitches, as we use equipment from both brands. Thanks for showing a ball mount in each hitch and the difference in "play" between each, that is really helpful! Thanks for the video.

  28. CC on August 3, 2022 at 12:04 am

    Heavy hitch makes a good product but I cannot justify the cost. Somewhere in between the two you showed, there are decently priced options that are pretty good. Titan for example make a good hitch at a fair price.

  29. Brad Jenkins on August 3, 2022 at 12:05 am

    I built my own for $30.

  30. anthony marino on August 3, 2022 at 12:10 am

    you get what you pay for

  31. thardyryll on August 3, 2022 at 12:11 am

    I just got my $80 Amazon/China receiver today and immediately noticed the sloppy fit at the hitch tube. But, let’s face it, the difference in materials and price between the Chinese piece and the Heavy Hitch is such that an exact copy would cost, what, $120? Like every person watching these vids, I have hundreds if not thousands of shop tools made in China. A huge number are not “cheap” in the poor quality sense, as they bear premium brand names such as Makita and Bosch, and the quality is impeccable. Others have those bizarre Chinese brand names but even then are amazingly well built. I have suggested for years that people should imagine a store with two aisles of identical products, Chinese on one side, American on the other. Go down the flat-screen TV aisle, where your 65-inch LED TV is $1,000 on one side, $2,000 on the other. They are the same in every way. Even the staunchest buy-American advocate will look over his shoulder, put the Chinese TV in his cart and hustle out of the store. It is human nature: if there’s one thing we don’t like it is knowing that the other guy got a better deal.

  32. Robin Norman on August 3, 2022 at 12:12 am

    That’s the problem with made in america over priced and don’t come complete. Have to buy pieces to use at extra costs! And today with everything increasing in price money is everything. USA is making it easy for China to get market gains!! 🤷🤷 Wake up Merica!

  33. Sid Dunn on August 3, 2022 at 12:12 am

    Enjoyed your info. Thnx

  34. ApexSun on August 3, 2022 at 12:12 am

    The chinesium stuff is definitely metric stock and they just lie about it as standard sizing. I would rather make my own stuff then have that. Although I just bookmarked Heavy Hitch, they do need to have more value if we are to support American products, Include the pin for example, that’s ridiculous not to.

  35. Mark Sleeper on August 3, 2022 at 12:12 am

    I have a lot of titan products very happy with them I have the king cutter hitch for my 52 hp Jd it is not the cheap one a very heavy built hitch

  36. Pat Chitwood on August 3, 2022 at 12:14 am

    I have had the $70 version for a couple of years now. It has worked fine. However, I only use it a few times a year. My only hang up with it was the fact that the hole for the receiver pin was in the wrong location for the receiver to work. I had to drill 2 new holes. I definitely got what I paid for.

  37. Ajeh Langat on August 3, 2022 at 12:17 am

    No point supporting your local business that want to rip you off and sell things that do not work.

  38. Flyover Country on August 3, 2022 at 12:18 am

    Kind of late to the party, but thought I’d add my 2¢. I bought a Heavy Hitch, mainly because I use it with a bunch of 2” attachments. A ripper plow, potato plow, toolbar, and hopefully one day a back blade (Heavy Hitch of course). I don’t think the Amazon version would survive that kind of use. “Buy once, cry once.”

  39. SilverbackAG on August 3, 2022 at 12:18 am

    A front hitch on a quick attach plate is a godsend for moving around everything up to including goosenecks. No need to actually latch em. You can turn them on a dime and repositioning them anyway you want them.

    Your tractor is a bit undersized for much of that though (mine’s a Kubota MX with lots of ballast).

  40. Mark Sleeper on August 3, 2022 at 12:20 am

    great vid check out Ken’s bolt on hooks he has quick hitch parts

  41. Moak Moak on August 3, 2022 at 12:20 am

    I bought the Chinese one-off from amazon a year ago and then put it inside a plastic 55-gallon drum for making my rear ballast 3pt weight and its held up good at least for the parts that I can see that are sticking out of the drum

  42. TERRY BENSON on August 3, 2022 at 12:21 am

    Hi Ed. I’ve been catching up on your videos, as I’m a new subscriber from a few months ago. I really enjoy them. You do a great job. I’m too a Kubota owner, and the tasks you do with your tractor are great.. You have a knack for teaching/instructing. Keep up with the great content.. God bless you & your family.. 😉

  43. JH Scheppele on August 3, 2022 at 12:23 am

    I had some galvanized square tubing laying around and made my own , for less than $10.00.

  44. Gene LeGear on August 3, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Good job, you’re right, for the most part you get what you pay for. Buy American when possible…..ROLL TIDE….

  45. Jokin Joe on August 3, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Ed you can buy the top hook on amazon that sits out about 3/4 of an inch for about 30 dollars ,that is what I did and it works on every attachment..Good demo of the 2 hitches…….

  46. Fergy Jenkins on August 3, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Support North American companies keep commies out

  47. Stephen Seiwert on August 3, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Thanks for the comparison. Did you know that Bolt On Hooks has a extended top hook for $45.00 for that problem. It extends the hook 5/8" further out than the original one. I have one on my John Deere I-Match quick hitch and it works great!

  48. Jeffery Walton on August 3, 2022 at 12:26 am

    Is this Tractor Tim’s cousin??

  49. Joe Williams on August 3, 2022 at 12:27 am

    I bought a receiver hitch/weight holder from Titan attachments for around $130. I did have to add on tabs to make the top link taller to work on my quick hitch, but so far it’s worked great

  50. Keith Rayeski on August 3, 2022 at 12:28 am

    I agree…yes, heavy hitch is more expensive, but…it’s also much, much better quality!! It’s worth the extra AND, as you noted. It supports an American manufacturer which is priceless!! Great review!!
