They Modernize Older Tractors
"We've put 3 pt. hitches on tractors from as far back as the early 1940's, including Farmall M's and H's, Massey Harris's, Allis-Chalmers WD's and Deere 2-cylinders," says Gary Lee of Innovative Product Sales, Sand Point, Idaho.
Pak Systems 3 pt. hitch attaches to the tractor axle with a bolt-on bracket. They have power-up, power-down as well as float capabilities. Two turnbuckles replace sway bars on conventional 3 pt's to permit adjusting side sway without having to attach and detach implements. They'll handle Cat. I and II implements and are available in standard single cylinder or optional dual cylinder lift configuration.
On older tractors without hydraulics, the 3 pt's can be operated by a pump installed on the belt pulley or behind the magneto, Lee says.
Sells for $895 not including cylinder(s) or hydraulic system.
