First Of Its Kind 3 Pt Hitch Stabilizer
Built from heavy 3/4 -in. thick plate steel, the hitch blocks bolt into place with no modification of tractor. Hitch arms rub against outer plate, lubricated via a grease zerk in the blocks themselves. Spacer bolts hold stabilizer blocks in the correct position for either Cat. II or Cat III hitches, and can be quickly changed from one to the other.
"Once installed, hitch arms hold steady as a rock. Won't move even with the heaviest cultivator. Holds cultivators, plows and other 3-pt. equipment right on track even on steep hills or when working ridges," says Klingler. "Without these blocks many hitches swing as much as 3 in. either way, even if equipped with IH stabilizer bars."
New stabilizer blocks fit all IH tractors except the 50 series. They sell for $95 a pair.
