Hack Squat Problems

Hello all, I’m recently adding hack squat to my programming after Back Squat/Leg Press and I must say I am having a hard time with them. My issue is that the reps feel SO HARD, yet i seemingly can always do another, and im not feeling a huge mind muscle connection with the quads. I am by no means unacquainted with training to failure, I have taken squat, smith machine squat, and leg press to faliure before, and even then those reps are not as difficult as these hack squat reps! Pretty funny and confusing stuff. I have heard it is a great exercise for hypertrophy over and over again, but am personally having trouble with it. Any opinions or related experiences are greatly appreciated! TLDR: Hack squat reps feeling extremely difficult, but I can almost always do another rep, and the mind muscle connection is small compared to in squat/leg press.
