Adapt-A-Hitch Converts Plows To On-LandThanks to the new "Adapt-A-Hitch," you can convert older International 550, and Deere 135 and 145 series plows to on-land plowing, keeping your tractor wheels out of the furrow for better traction.
The conversion hitch, manufactured by Star Mfg. Co., Freeport, Ill., was originally designed to assure proper center line draft when using the company's moldboard-to-chisel conversion kit, explains Skip Lehnard, marketing manager. However, the company discovered there's a good demand for the hitch to convert plows to on-land use.
The Adapt-A-Hitch takes less than3 hours to install. It bolts to the frame using the same bolt hole pattern that's on the hitch but moves the entire hitch over so the tractor's out of the furrow. For example, on an International 550 plow, the hitch and stabilizer bar are removed, the Adapt-A-Hitch bolted to the frame and the hitch assembly and stabilizer bar mounted back on the plow. No other plow modifications are needed.
Adapt-A-Hitch sells for $39.50 to $99.50, depending on the plow make.
