MIG and STICK Welding a Quick Change Hitch with Bagger Fabrication. In this video I take you through the design process of fabricating an Extreme Duty Quick Change Hitch Mount that can be used to support our new bagger that was just picked for FREE at a local yard sale! I start by plasma cutting some 5/16" steel plate then we cut up am old hitch and weld everything together using MIG and Stick Welding.

We call it "Cutting" an inch. I put the 6 3/4" on the centerline then mar zero and thirteen. The reason the end moves is to compensate for the thickness of the catch hook. It saves a stepand double checks the number as it's laid out.
Thanks Jerry! I have had zero issues with this plasma cutter. I would gladly buy it again. If you look in my tools playlist you will find a review on this and what's included. Thanks for your support! I saved you the trouble lol https://youtu.be/REZXOpgd8kQ
That is a nice project hitch. Cool to use a standard reese style hitch then make your bagging attachment to fit it. Nice workmanship ,welds and thought process. I just wished you would have welded the seams they did not weld at the factory. Does it need it no will it hold yes. But I just love seeing a good looking 7018 weld. Any place where the metal touches and there is no weld is like a day without sunshine. I really like that Blue demon welder. All I got to say is dang they have come a long way with shrinking the size and weight of welding equipment. I would love to know what that machine cost. All my stick rod welding equipment is old my round top idealarc lincoln welds great but you need a cherry picker and a pickup to move it
I really enjoy engaging with our little community we have here. I hear what your saying about sealing everything up. I’m usually very particular about aesthetics also. I’m from Maine, so if it’s not sealed or painted, it’s rotting away in short order from all our winter salt. It’s brutal up here! Cheers brother!
Brandon Lund thank you for taking time to answer questions and communicate with your viewers. It is just easy to find yourself trusting a 7018 weld. I also like the idea of forming a seal around the parts. I live in Ohio so building things to resist rust is always a concern around here.
Thanks man! That welder is a beast for the money. It's around 300 bucks and easily welds 6010 rods also. They have come a long way since I started welding too. I agree with you about laying down a nice looking bead where the factory left off. I intended on doing it but somehow I forgot and never went back to it. Thank you for your comment and support! Cheers
Welding Junkie most all of the inverter type welders wont run a 6010. Supposedly the blue demon 160sti is one of the few that will. I haven't tried it yet but thanks to you I guess we are going to find out!!! Thanks for the suggestion!
