Wiggle Hitch For Big Tractors
Owners of big 4-wheel and 2-wheel drive tractors are taking a close look at a new heavy-duty hitch system from Zwibco Manufacturing that's designed to eliminate frustrating hook-up problems with big equipment behind big tractors.
The Kirsch Wiggle Hitch is housed in a rectangular casing that bolts to your existing drawbar. A 2-in. dia. hydraulic cylinder inside pushes the hitch 8 in. out of the case where it can be moved back and forth 10 in., and 5 in. up and down. Once you've hooked onto the implement, the hitch is pulled back into its casing, where it locks into place automatically.
"There are automatic controls inside the cab for operating the hitch,and remote controls that mount in the rear, depending on how your tractor is equipped. You just back up close to the implement and let the retrieval hitch do the rest," explains Ron Zwickco, president of Zwibco.
At this time, the company makes hitches for 150 hp. 2-wheel drives and up, and for most large 4-wheel drives. Hitches are being designed to fit a full range of 2-wheel drives and smaller 4-wheel drives. Current hitches range in price from $800 to $1,500.
