Default 4 wheeler hitch

Made another hitch for the Kawasaki 4 this morning. Not sure why some dumb ass engineer designed these 4 wheeler hitches angling down at around30 degrees. Put a chunk of 2" TS in the saw and cut the angles, then welded it up using 1/8" 7014 and the old buzz box I got a few weeks ago. That buzz box has the smoothest arc I have ever seen. The 7014 was a partial payment for a weld job I did last summer. It does make a pretty bead. Paint is drying now.

Nice bead! Any trouble striking the ark, did you try some 7018?
