    Default Want to make ball hitch attachment for the three point lift, Any made?

    I have a Cat 1, 3 Pt Hitch, I want to put a ball on a cross member and mount it between the lower arms of the 3PH.
    Any have any pics of one they have made?
    I will build it, but I am thinking of hitch geometry and such?
    Thank you

    Here is one that I did as an early welding project. The welding could be a lot better, but it will give an idea of one approach. Note, the weight and pull is on a heavy duty drawbar, so it should hold. My welds are just keeping it upright.

    Here's the thread I posted after making mine: My 3 point trailer hitch project


    If I were to do it again, I would put the hitch on the inderside, then bolt through the drawbar into a plate on top, which I would weld the vertical part.

    You either need to get one like others have posted, or you need an anti-rotation bracket if you only use the lower arms like you are talking about doing

    I liked this design so much that I bought one!

    The top receiver makes it very versatile.

    I just bought this one last week to tow a large chipper around in the woods. I already had the drawbar so this was the cheapest option by far and worked great.

    Edit: My only complaint is that it wouldn't fit my quickhitch but it won't be too tough to modify it to fit.
