Re: X7 Series - Front weight bracket, Deere (BM24363) Or Heavy Hitch?
I can offer no insight on the need for weight myself. However I am really impressed with Heavy Hitch as a maker of JD parts. I put on one of their rear receiver hitches and it is vastly superior to the JD variety because it uses standard 2" stingers used on my truck. The JD one uses 1.25" which would necessitate buying more stingers and balls.
