3-Pt Mounted Automatic Hitch
"I call it my ŠLast Hitch' because it's the last hitch I'll ever need," says Bill Kurtz, St. Croix Falls, Wis., about his 3-pt. automatic hitch that lets him hook up to equipment without getting off the tractor.
It consists of a steel frame equipped with a guide and hitch pin that mounts on the 3-pt., and a matching ring connected to a stand that pins onto the tongue on any wagon or trailer. When Kurtz backs the guide over the ring the hitch pin automatically snaps into place. He can automatically unhook from the implement by pulling on a rope from the tractor cab.
"It works great for hauling round bales. I can drop a wagon off, load a few bales, then hook the wagon back up and move to the next spot - without ever leaving the tractor seat. I also use it to hook up to a home-made 3-pt. bale fork.
"By removing two bolts I can mount the center section of the unit on an International tractor's fast hitch."
