If you are talking about tractor 3 point hitches, not only are there different pin sizes as Steve's link shows, there are also different spreads between the pins and different top link heights depending on CATEGORY: 0, I, II, or III.

On the 3pt, as the link below says, it is basically for more hp tractors. There is a cat 1 for lawn & garden tractors. Then there is 1 for up to about 60hp, then 2 for 65-120hp, 3 for bigger. Roughly.

Would you happen to be talking about hitches on the back of your truck for towing a trailer???

Hitch, Receiver Hitch, Trailer Hitch A Receiver Hitch is the primary device that is attached to the rear of the vehicle that allows you to tow. There are six classes of hitches. It is very important to choose the correct class of receiver hitch. Gross trailer weight and tongue weight will determine the hitch that is needed. Do not exceed the lowest rating of any component of your towing system.
GTW = gross trailer weight
WD = weight distrubuting hitch Class 1 - 1000 to 2500 GTW Class 2 - 3500 GTW Class 2.5 - 4,000 GTW Class 3 - 10,000 WD/6,000 GTW Class 4 - 12,000 WD/8,000 GTW Class 5 - 14,000 WD/10,000 GTW
