Fast hitch “adapter” for 3 pt tractor

Postby Saucymynx » Mon May 13, 2019 8:22 pm

Hello – I am amassing a bit of a collection of fast hitch implements for my 140 and would like to also use them on my other tractors that have three point hitches. It seems that if I had a fast hitch receiver that this could be welded into A three point linkage. Has anyone ever seen something like that commercially available or fabricated one yourself?
Thanks

I’ll bet 90% of your time building this was in figuring out how and what the dimensions should be. That’s all been done now so if you were to build a second (for someone who needs one) it’d just be a matter of getting the parts together and figuring the labor cost right? ;)

Yes sir Mike, I have no idea what material would cost and you need the pull bar from a donor FH.

If you didn't have a donor FH, could you use 1 x 3" tubing with a pin through it just behind the barb of a prong?

John, that's a good thought but it would have to be 1" X 3" on the inside, you have to deal with the weld seam and also the radius in the corners of tubing. It could be done but the labor involved would add up to what a pull bar could be bought for probably.
