My DC has an Eagle Hitch.

A neighbor has a Case blade and a 2 bottom mounted Case plow that are made for the Eagle hitch.

Explain the differences between the Eagle hitch and a standard 3 point?

I have a DC foot clutch with eagle hitch and I noticed that the implement, not the hitch arms move as like in a eagle hitch plow hook up but other stuff is fixed in position and will not flex but that is what other people are telling you any way and if you run a bush hog with it be careful just my two cents good luck.

The main difference is that the eagle hitch arms can not be set to sway left and right behind the tractor. The arms have a fixed width of 28" center to center. The eagle hitch also allows the user to quickly connect and disconnect implements without leaving the tractor seat (with some practice). Additionally, the geometry of the eagle hitch allows depth control of an eagle hitch plow without draft control.

The biggest difference is the standard 3 pt Cat 1 has a different geometry the the Eagle, at least as far as using stuff goes. An Eagle doesn't lift as high usually either. IMO the Eagle is no easier to hitch under field conditions, not much anyways. I like the Eagle, I like the standard Cat 1 and 2 too. Trying to use stuff made for one on the other can be a pain though.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
