Dumb question about rear end hitch components

Postby noisyone » Tue May 09, 2017 1:03 pm

I feel dumb asking this question, but need to run it past some of you. Is this component with the yellow arrows needed for stabilization or simply a part of the fast hitch assembly? The reason I ask, was that I intended to remove it if it's not needed, and only part of the fast hitch.

This will be obvious to alot of you, but I'm just not sure. Thanks in advance.

It's just part of the fast hitch, take it off if not needed. That piece is called the "bail".
God is good, all the time!

Thanks! Got it off. I am replacing it with a straight bar to support my 3 point hitch lift arms.

The Loboy FH is worth several hundred dollars if it's complete.
Not sure if you were tossing it to the side or selling it.
