    Many in the past. Today, a Kubota M59, JD530, 2 Yanmars - 16 & 33 hp, & a JD310SG

    Default Front three point hitch

    Does anyone have experience using implements on a front three point hitch?
    I've got a kubota with a quick-detatchable FEL bucket and it came with a front three point conversion plate.
    I meant to mount a rock rake up there but haven't gotten around to doing it. Anyone else try this sort of thing?

    Pride of place goes to our 2 cylinder John Deer 530. She's as modern & useful today as 50 years ago.
    A Kubota M59 & a JD310SG for TLB work....giving us options on doing the same job.
    By the barn sleeps a pair of 33 & 16 hp 4wd US Yanmars getting along in years: Mr. Big & Ms Little.
    And a yard full of well-beaten implements which work far better than they look.

    Sounds like a rock rake would work on the FEL. Never tried it but thought about welding some brackets on the bucket to see. I didnt know that they made a QA plate just for that purpose. I have seen post here on TBN where they used a boom pole attached to the FEL. I suppose about anything would work if it didnt require too much pushing side pressure. Might be a little hard to steer if using something like a straight blade with side to side pressure.

    With the hitch that far in front of the front axle it might be hard to deal with any uneven ground.

    I mounted a 3pt QA on the FEL. Have used a landscape rake and boom pole on it. Allows me to rake a site without having to take BH off. Weight of attachment limits how big I can use.

    I think other than Boom pole or rake that front 3PT use specialized equipment, I did see a V hay rake and big round baler on a JD monster out west years ago whole trucking. It was on a 3PT mounted on the tractor.

    The Bobtach compatible bucket mount is more useful than using 3pt equipment. Skip the 3 pt and focus on the skidsteer mount. Right now I'm building an offset mount for my hydraulic post hole digger. The offset puts the auger tip off to the right side so I can see it.

    I also made a forks attachment that fits both Bobtach and also 3pt quick hitch.
