Improving the Eagle Hitch

Sacrilege you say! Well, maybe. Here's the deal- I have a nice running 811b, thanks to John Saeli. I use it for moving my round bales with a bale spear. I had to put the top link on the spear on top of the column to get a decent lift. Now I'm thinking if I extend the lower arms maybe 6" I'll get a bale spear that drops lower and lifts higher. The bales aren't real heavy and I'm pretty sure the hydraulics will handle it. There's no way I can see to make the change to the bale spear to get more lift, it's gotta be on the arms. I have the flat stock to make an adapter that would just fit on the Eagle arms and through the pin "claw", no permanent changes IOW.

Any thoughts? I need the bales to lift higher than the Eagle hitch lifts them or they sometimes catch and get pulled off the spear.

I'm looking to buy an SC case I have found several but none have the Eagle Hitch. Is it possible to add an Eagle Hitch or 3 pt hitch to An SC Case?

I put a hydraulic cylinder on the top of my Eagle Hitch and move round bales with ease.

Before you make any changes to the lower arms, try raising the attach point on the bale spear. Raising the 3rd link attach point changes the angle ratio and tilts the spear down when lowered and and higher when raised... Gene

I added 3" to the draft (lift) arms on one of my VACs for much the same reason and it still lifts a bunch.
