3-Pt. Hitch Stabilizer“It puts an end to 3-pt. hitch sway,” says Ken Klingler, Klingler Mfg., about his new 3-pt. hitch stabilizer for IH 656 to 1586 tractors.
Built from heavy 3/4 by 6-in. plate steel, the hitch blocks bolt into place with no modification of tractor. Hitch arms slide on the outside of the vertically-mounted plates. Spacer bolts hold stabilizer blocks in the correct position for either Cat. II or Cat. III hitches. No holes to drill.
“Without these blocks, IH hitches can sway as much as 3 in. Once installed, hitch arms hold steady as a rock. They won’t move even with the heaviest implements. We have had these units out for over 20 years and the people who have them are truly satisfied. Stabilizers are backed by a money-back guarantee.”
The hitch stabilizer blocks sell for $145 per set plus shipping. Some models require narrower hole spacing so specify tractor model when ordering.
Klingler also makes crop deflector plates that attach to stabilizer bottom irons to protect tall row crops from damage. They sell for $15 a set. Dealer inquiries welcome.
