He Made A Low-Cost Skid Loader Quick-Hitch
By removing the 3-pt. quick hitch brackets from his Deere 3010 tractor and welding them onto a new skid mounting plate, Brett Hundertmark was able to make a low-cost quick-hitch for his Mustang 2040 skid loader.
    He bought the skid plate for $220 and had a neighbor weld the quick-hitch brackets onto it.
    “A new commercial skid loader quick hitch would have cost at least $500, so I saved money,” says Hundertmark.
    “I use the skid loader to blow snow in the winter and mow road ditches in the summer. If I want I can mount a drawbar with holes in it across both of the quick-hitch’s lower brackets. It really comes in handy if a trailer’s tongue is down in the dirt, because I can hook up to it without having to jack the tongue up. I’m also building a quick-tach grader blade which I’ll use to move snow and to level my driveway.”
