    Default Anyone Using a Jiffy Hitch

    Looking for a QA for my Ford 3000 ( Cat 1 ?) with implements from many different manufacturers. Ran across the Jiffy Hitch and it looks easy to use. Anyone have any experience with the Jiffy Hitch? Are there any other brands that are better / easier? Here is a video I found of the Jiffy Hitch I found on YouTube.

    Looks like the implement side is somewhat adjustable.

    Often called "delta hitch," as a class, although that is also a name.

    The biggest drawback is having to buy/build an adapter for each implement.

    There's been a few threads on this hitch...try a search using "Delta Hitch" since that's what I've read them referred to more often.

    Big drawbacks are as bcp wrote and the cost. These hitches cost well over $600.
    For a Category 1 tractor, there are (IMHO) better and less costly solutions.

    BTW,

    As you can see I am new to this forum stuff. It is an exciting tool for sharing info. Thanks for the fast responses. Yes the Delta is WAYYY too pricey for me right now. I will have to keep looking. Thanks for responding and making a newbie feel welcome.
