Quick hitch question

53 Jubilee, using bush hog; heavy box blade; boom pole; tote box (pallet size)

For months I have been reading forums about the Pat's quick hitch and considering it. No, not lazy...health issues. Also contemplating a hydraulic top link addition.
Anyway, I have not seen where anyone has taken a spare set of lift arms and cut them down to compensate for the extra length the quick hitch adds. Does that make sense?

Now that I like! Kind of one size fits all. Looks like right and left arms each adjust?

It's not the same as a quitch hitch but if you look at some of the larger tractors like a 4000 they have a release mechanism to allow you to move the end of the lift arm out, plus up and down about 4".
You simply pull a cable up and it releases it.
Makes it MUCH easier to connect to the pins without having to budge the heavy implement around. When you get the implement connected just back up a little and they snap back into place.
I've often thought about welding a set on my lift arms to make it easier to connect things to the tractor.

Good input.
Reckon I need to do more measurin' and figurin' before I spend the $. Seems that if you are using sway bars you gain little in effort savings. They would have to be modified to fit too. And I can imagine you still have to fudge around to get them on. :roll:

Yea...wondering about the Gill rollover box blade. It's a toe masher.

And I don't know if you can use sway bars easily with the quick hitch. Seems that would be a problem.

Sway bars work the same way as on anything else you would just hook it to t quick connect the 3 point side. That would make it so you have to be a whole lot more exact when hooking up

Quick hitch adds maybe 4-6 inches so not big deal unless you have something real super heavy to hook up to. Big problem is not one size fits all when it comes to 3 point equipment

I have a brand new quick hitch I've never used. Every one of my implements requires a different accommodation to make it work. Simpler for me to just manually hook up implements.

Yep that is the problem with them. Not all equipment has the pin for the 3 point arms the same as to how wide or narrow they sit so the quick connect does not fit. I have modified more then one machine to work on a quick connect set up

Same here, I was buying some tractor stuff and the seller threw in an almost new Harbor Freight quick hitch, along with the "secret" HF adaptor for non-standard implements. Of 5 implements I tried it with, it would only fit one without serious hassles. I could have probably modified one or maybe two of the others to fit, but it would have taken some fairly extensive cutting and welding.

Pat's seems a bit better in this regard just because it doesn't try to do as much.

I dream of some self centering quick hitch that would allow simply backing up to the implement and instantly hitching all three points, and disconnect with a single pull of a lever. I gather they do exist, but would cost more that the tractor.
