Powered Top Link For 3 Pt HitchesYou'll like the price tag on PowerLink, a new hydraulically-powered top link adjustment for 3 pt. hitches from FBS Corp., Cozad, Neb., that lets you adjust the work angle of equipment "on the go" right from the tractor seat.
Priced at $495, it fits all category II and III 3 pt. hitches and, by pulling two pins, can be easily moved from one tractor to another. Two hydraulically-powered spur gears are turned mechanically on a screw to adjust "work angle" to whatever increment is desired on the PowerLink's 8-in. stroke. An optional 5 memory digital monitor records every 1/10 turn of the screw, making it easy for the tractor operator to always know the exact working postion of 3 pt. equipment, explains Mark Fasse, sales manager. Also optional is an install-it-yourself, electric-control hydraulic outlet for use on tractors on which all existing hydraulic outlets are committed.
Fosse cites the following applications for the new PowerLink:
•To pull up wide equipment so you can cross ditches, or turn on the ends without scalping crops or furrows.
•To adjust the "work angle" of tillage equipment "on the go" to compensate for changes in soil type, terrain, traction, or whatever.
•To hook up to 3 pt. equipment without having to get off the tractor to hand-adjust the top linkage.
