Default Odd source for category 0 ball sockets

Last time I posted a link to a good deal, things didn't work out. I never learn. Hopefully this one goes better. If you are looking for category 0 weld-on ball sockets read the rest.

Been collecting steel to build two 3 pt Hib tches. One for my 1711 and another for my 782. Been looking for a good price on the weld on ball sockets. Most prices were running $8-12 each. Building two hitches meant I needed 12 sockets so any savings adds up quickly. Online searches found a strange source of these weld-on ball sockets at $2.80 each. I ordered 18 of them and they arrived today. Not sure how long they will carry them.

Below is the link and a photo of what I received.

For $2.80, they can't be worth a sheet.....

Oh now Jon. If they get used as much as I've used mine since installation, they'll last a REAL long time... Just haven't had anything to do with it lately. Sounds like a personal problem...

We were computer shopping for the kid, they sell new, not refurbished, surface pro's. Never thought they were in the $1K computer sales.

I'm in the material handling biz and they recently opened (2) 1 million square foot each buildings here in Davenport that are specifically for the .com business only with a conveniently placed fed ex hub right in the middle of them. They're trying for sure to compete with the big A.

I got my ball sockets today, they come from a company in Colorado.
I did not see any Chinese characters on it, or the bags.
Looks like they will last a long time.
I only needed 8 and I have 18 so if anyone needs any let me know.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
