Fast Hitch

Postby Steve ND » Wed Jan 27, 2016 11:16 pm

Hello all
Wondering if anyone knows if the fasthitch for the 130 is the same (interchangeable) with the 100, 140, and even the cub?
I am looking at a 130 that doesn't have a fast hitch and would like to know before I make an offer if I will be able to find a hitch for it.
Any input is appreciated!
Thanks,
Steve

100, 130, 140 all the same. That hitch will even fit the Super A, but you will also need the left touch control arm off the donor tractor if you want to use the helper spring, and the right touch control arm off the donor tractor if you want to use the depth control.

The hard part is finding a complete one. There was one on a parts jockey's trailer at a tractor show last summer. I should have asked what he wanted for it but I figured "a lot" would be the answer. Would've been nice on my Super A.

The right control arm is the same, fast hitch or no.

Greg, what are you doing? trying to buy ALL the 130/140s in the upper midwest? :lol:
I sure could use a fast hitch too, and some equipment that hooks up to it, just one problem....$$

Eh? Then where does the depth control linkage connect to?

On a Super C and up, there is an extra clevis on the left arm for the depth control linkage. I assumed the 100/130/140 was the same.

Does it connect to the "regular" hole like the plow depth control on a Super A?

Two different animals. You are correct, Super C has an extra clevis to hook up the depth control. Super A-140 connects to the rear hole on the arm, like a plow depth control linkage.
