Hopefully this works. Here's a picture of 2 Abbott 3X2 hitches:



The closest one is looking at the rear where you slide in your 2pt. prongs/drawbar/piece of equipment. The rear/farthest away one looks at the tractor side. The rear one also has the toplink bracket removed and rewelded to the underside of the frame and has smaller pins in the 3pt. hitch connections. The original owner had a Case with an eagle hitch and an IH tractor with a Cat. II 3pt., so maybe that's why he moved the toplink bracket there and why it has smaller pins.

About 30 yrs ago my cousin had an adapter to put on a 3 point hitch which allowed you to pick up 2 point implements. I borrowed it to use a fast-hitch cultivator on my 1066. Don't remember what brand it was or where it ended up. He's long retired and was at his dispersal sale but it was not there. Would like to have it now! It hooked up like a quick hitch but the 2 pt arms went inside of lower arms and latched.

Rex, From reading the responses there appears to be some confusion in the adapter you are asking about. Are you asking - is there an adapter that allows the use of an IHC 2 point fast hitch implement on a tractor equipped with a 3-point lift system or are you asking about an adapter to adapt a 3 point implement to a 2 point fast hitch IH tractor? If you are wanting to use a three point implement on a 2 point fast hitch IHC tractor (like your IH 240 Utility) there are adapters currently being produced to support that need. Bates Corp. in Bourbon, Indiana offers newly made ones on their website. I haven't seen an adapter for a 2 point fast hitch implement to a 3 point tractor but guess they could have been produced. In an earlier thread you mentioned needing to obtain a May-June 2004 Red Power magazine for some fast hitch information. If there is something you want copied I would be most happy to provide that to you as I have a copy. You can also obtain past copies from Red Power through their website for $5.00 postpaid I believe. If you just need some copies my email is open on this thread if you want to contact me, Hal.

What I am looking for is something to use my fast hitch implements on my IH 385 utility tractor, sorry for the confusion.

There are many 2 to 3pt. conversion/adapter options, but very few 3 to 2pt. adapters. I have 2 Abbott 3 to 2 point adapter hitches. I think that Abbott made some of the earlier 2 to 3 point hitch conversion packages, too.

Be sure of the size you are dealing with here. Are the implements large or small, and I'm thinking the 385 has Cat. I 3 point. and the 720 Deere has Cat. II.

The 385 can be switched to cat 2 by turning the lower arms around but thanks for the heads up I doubt I will find one close to me anytime soon.

But I will keep looking Thanks to all

IH offered their version, they made them for both small & large points:

Aftermarket sources have the "New" version that allows one to simply back up, raise the hitch & go:
