3 point to Fast Hitch adapter

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

3 point to Fast Hitch adapter

Postby Slim140 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:47 am

I had an extra pull bar for a Cub fast hitch and decided to convert it to 3 point hitch so I can use fast hitch implements with the 3 point hitch. I know most people want to go from fast hitch to 3 point but I had this extra pull bar and want to use it with the sprayer I been messing with. Also will be able to use the yard tool I built last year for the Cub on anything with a 3 point. Got the porta-band out and made a few cuts and now have some extra parts for the Cub fast hitch :lol:

Hitch pin brackets aren't facing the wrong way?

No, 3 point hooks on one side and the fast hitch faces the other.

Got the top link connecting brackets on. Now it needs paint and 2 lift pins and it's ready to hook to the Ford so I can spray come spring time. I'll be able to adjust the angle with the top link.

I made a similar unit, a few years ago, to use my 1 point york rake, with the 3 point 444.
