3-Pt Adapter Adjusts To Any Implement Width
"My 3-pt. hitch adapter works better than a conventional quick hitch because it adjusts to fit different implement widths," says Ken Braun, Braun Custom Lathe & Milling, Fort Wayne, Ind.
The adapter consists of two hooks that attach to the lift arms and a 1-in. wide "spreader bar" that mounts in between. The 2-piece spreader bar telescopes in and out as needed and is held in place by two spring-loaded carriage bolts. The width of the hitch arms can be widened or narrowed as needed to fit any width implement.
"It really works slick," says Braun. "I built it because it seems like none of my implements are the same width. I always had to have another person hold the lift arms apart while I backed up the tractor."
Spring-loaded locks flip down over the hitch pins to hold the implement securely in place once it's hooked up.
