New 3 PT Hookup Tool
It consists of a leverage bar - made out of cold-rolled steel - that has a hollow point and special pins that mount on the implement. The pins each have a small ball on the end that fit snuggly into the leverage bar. To hitch up, slip the bar through the hitch arm and over the head of the pin. Then use the bar to work the hitch arm over onto the pin.
"Lets you easily hook up with one arm. No need to back the tractor up perfectly," says Howatt, who's already had tremendous success with the simple new tool, marketing it through several nationally-known mail order companies including PDQ Parts, Central Tractor, and others.
The tool for Cat I hitches sells for $29.95 (includes 2 pins). The tool for Cat II hitches sells for $39.95.
