3-point hitch for M

Where's a good place to get a 3-pt hitch for a Farmall M? What should I be looking for in the way of adjustments, and what should be the extension possible from the cylinder? If I'm going to use the hitch for a 6-foot bushhog and/or a small disk do I need two cylinders or is one as good? Category I or II? (If anyone near Maryland has a used hitch they want to sell please let me know.)

Ive made a few homemade 3 points. The one on my H right now will pick up a 500# 5 foot brush hog no prob. And one cylender is all you need. Hydraulics arnt all that good anyway on H and Ms.
I can make a single cylender for bout $400. Its all you need.

Ron, I have a 3-point conversion hitch on my Super H. I only use one cylinder and I can easily lift the front wheels off the ground. I have a 3-point 8' tandom disk and it has no problem lifting it. I also use if for a Woods mower and a 2 bottom Cockshut plow. Works good on all those. Roger

siganaws hitch is good but I bought 2 from Jones Salvage ( I can find the web site if you are interested ). About the same mones as siganaws but depending on where you are the fraight may make a difference. Jones is also a good sourse for used parts and information( always willing to help, ask for Jim )

They have the best hitch and the best price. Comes with two cylinders, top link, float capability, Cat 1/2 arms, and it allows you to keep the factory drawbar as well (at no extra charge).
If you want to make a trip to VA you can see a couple of them in action (no, none of them are for sale).

If what your going to use it for is to bush-hog ,then forget about a three point hitch and get a pull type bush-hog and use your drawbar.I have both and wouldn't give one pull type bush-hog for all the lift type. If you have a lift type ,sell it or trade it for a pull type and forget about a three point hitch.Just sold my three point hitch for $100 dollars.Save your money and invest in a pull type bush-hog.

www.worksaver.com - they suggest single cylnders for what your talking about. You can always add a second. I believe their equipment comes with cat 1/2 arms already. Top link is the variable, that is what I got with my FH to three point conversion. Good equipment!!!!

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
