    The 3-point hitch comes in 5 different sizes, numbered from 0 to 4. The differences between them are the dimensions of the triangle and the size of the three connecting pins.

    The lower lift arms on a 3ph cat 1 are 26" wide, with the top link being 18 inches above the center line, between the two lower lift arms. The lower lift pins are 7/8" in diameter, and the top link pin is 3/4". The cat 1 hitch is used on tractors from 20-45 hp.

    A cat 2 hitch is 32" wide. The top link is located 24" above the center line between the two lower lift pins. The lower lift pins are 1-1/8" inch in diameter. The top link pin is 1" in diameter. The larger Cat 2 hitch is designed for use with tractors ranging from 40-100 hp.

    By definition, my Ford 1100 13HP tractor should be Cat 0, but its Cat 1. So if you're looking at a specific tractor, you might need to check the specs to see what category the 3P is. I'm limited to the smaller Cat 1 implements, but can run those just fine, and I think there's a bigger selection of Cat 1 vs Cat 0.
