Simple Solution To 3-Pt. Hookups
Don Ramberg has a simple solution to dealing with 3-pt. implements. He "tongue jacks" them by welding trailer tongue jacks to the front of 3-pt. hitch attachments and implements. The jacks make them easier to store and easier to hook up.
"I often borrow my brother-in-law's cultivator, and it seems that every time I do, it falls on its nose," explains Ramberg. "Then I have to find blocks to hold it up. I've always used tongue jacks on trailers and thought, why not use them on 3-pt. implements, too."
Ramberg buys his jacks for $19 each (less when they are on sale) at Harbor Freight. He attaches them in spots where they won't interfere with the implement's use.
"A tongue jack is especially handy on heavy attachments like snowblowers," he says. "I screw the jack up until the arm on the opposite side slides into place. Then I raise or lower it to match the near side arm. It makes hooking up the 3-pt. easy."
