How useful is a quick hitch?

I've got a Saginaw 3pt hitch on my Farmall H. I use a two bottom plow and a 3pt disk. I've been curious about the quick hitches and came across one for $75 so I thought I'd give it a try. My question is how useful are they? Will it be something I'll use on a club plow day when we are shuffling and moving equipment around but not something you'd want to actually use disking?

One thing to make sure of if considering a quick hitch is that all your implements are made to the standard Cat 1 dimension across the lower pins. I know not all are - I used to have a factory-made 5-ft disk that was about three inches wider than the standard 26" width so a quick hitch would not have worked. This is probably more of an issue with the "job shop" type implements that are commonly found in the Cat 1 size. I have quite a variety of Cat 1 implements and even though I'm not a particularly big guy I have no problems man-handling any of them into position for hookup so I've never felt that a quick hitch would be an advantage. Cat 2 and 3 stuff - now that would be a different story.

I have one and it works okay for some applications. Got it from Northern Tool quite a few years ago. (20 plus) Two drawbacks I have encountered are you need adapter bushings on the 3 PT hitch implement pins and width of attachment can't vary much from standard. Mine started to bend from side thrust so I had to weld 1/4 inch plates on the outside verticals. Now I don't use much as it seems to be as much a pain as the old way. Looks like in the pic of yours it may not require bushings. Just my 2cents worth.

On larger implements they work good. To heavy to move to hook up. If your top link has a pin with the appropriate clearance it would be good if not then a pain. A 3 point makes it a pain, to get on and off the tractor.

Don't have one, but in my head I can't think of any 3pt implements here that I could actually use it with due to the way the top link hook is.

First of all, i think it's going to be to big for the cub,and it does set your inplement back about 3-4 inches, would u really want that on the your 1 bottom plow on your cub. It might work on your H Farmall, if it's the right catagory .

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
