Hitch Inserts Painted

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Hitch Inserts Painted

Postby Chipmaker » Thu Nov 03, 2016 1:17 pm

I been thinking about getting all my hitches powdercoat painted. I talked to the guy and ask him if he would do them. I told him I wanted to be able to pick them out of a line up. He burned them off, blasted them and painted them. He also did 4 clevises for me. Just picked them up. Now when someone borrows one I can say I think that is mine :lol:

I painted all of my hand tools that color when I worked at a tool & die company.

It is, lol. I have a set of 4 each in 3 trucks (1 7/8" ball, 2" ball, 2 5/16" ball and a straight one for a pin for pulling gravity flow wagons, when your in the welding business and someone ask you to work on a trailer you don't know what you need to get it home), the tri-mount I made it and it stays with the Cub fast hitch, have one of the 90 degree ones in the trailer toolbox for putting the winch in, 3 other tractors that have hitches as well. I bought a few of these at sales, bought a couple on sale new and made about half of them oh and I found one laying in the middle of the road on the way home from work one day years ago. Told the wife yesterday if someone runs into one with their knee it's their on fault now and I won't feel guilty. I'll probably be the first :lol:

Hopefully the powder coating is not thick enough to make any of them stick in a receiver. This is my solution to different size trailer balls. The one shortcoming is it is only rated for 8,000 pounds

If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I wouldn't think the powdercoat they put on was any thicker than the black powdercoat they burnt/blasted off. I have put one in one truck and one in the Cub fast hitch and they fit like they should. I like those balls that interchange, the only reason I don't have any is the 2 5/16" one wouldn't cover the weight I pull when I pull the 5 ton trailer. The two smaller ones would be okay but I would probably wind up losing one of them. I've got a couple too many inserts but when our son starts driving I'm sure he will want a truck and he is more than welcome to a few of these.

Good to know, all these hitches I have are paid for. I have only bought maybe 3 of them new and they were on sale is the only reason. The others I either made, bought at auction cheap or acquired when I bought a truck. Got 2 of them a couple months ago when we bought the Sonoma. Found one of them with a 2 5/16" ball in the middle of the road on the way home one day. The balls, I have only bought maybe 5 new (on sale) out of the 12-15 I have, they came off trucks, mowers etc. when bought. I don't have much money in this whole set up and the guy that painted them painted them for free. We trade stuff out, he borrowed our skidsteer for 5 months last year, I sold it in July and he thinks he still owes me. It's not like I have $300 in all these. I been collecting them for 20+ years.
