MJ, I really hope there are no hard feelings. You seem to be taking it as an insult when it was a simple question.

Multiple factors behind why you didn't see a factory 3pt on a US Farmall until 1963-ish... Patent licensing fees being a major factor, and possibly the primary one.

We had Fast Hitch through the 1950's, and it wasn't like IH was the only company trying to come up with alternatives to 3pt... Case Eagle Hitch, or Allis Snap Coupler anyone? I don't think Deere even bothered; they just waited for the patent to run out.

Keep in mind that 3pt was not an industry standard until the early 1960's. It was another custom proprietary hitch system just like any of the others.

Thanks for your comments Mkirsch, you lads must have had great problems with your hitches in the 1950s. I persume the tractor makers all had theer own hitches to keep farmers on their brand of tractors. As a matter of intrest what dose your handle represent. Michael
