    You can't find the adapter on line. If you call them they will take an order right away.

    The HF adapter is in the parts list in the manual for the hitch. You have to call HF mail order and ask for it.

    KennyG and Bruce, thank you! I downloaded the manual from HF's website and, sure enough, there's the adapter. (Affirming once again, "When all else fails, read the directions.") I can't tell for sure from the diagram whether it would work with my old York rake without first removing the hook each time, which I'd like to avoid. Looks like the hook may still interfere with the upper end of the York rake's center strut, which forms the bottom of the rake's upper bracket. I've attached a pic of the rake. Those of you who have the HF adapter, what do you think?

    Yes you would need to remove the hook to use the adapter, and yes the adapter would be the easiest thing for the rake in the pic. That's the reason I just leave the adapter on and never use the hook, I almost always would have to get off anyway to either hook up a pto shaft or a parking stand anyway.

    O.k., makes sense. Appreciate the info!

    Agree need to remove the hook. I'm the one who did the cut off pins with the internal spring pins. It makes it really quick to move or remove the hook. I use the hook in two positions and removed to use the link for different attachments.

    Thanks, KennyG!
    Sorry I couldn't recall the thread with your original hitch pin clip idea. The solution was brilliant.

    There are some smart folks on this board.

    I've had one on my Sc2400 for about 5 yrs now and when I brought my T2320 down to NC in December, the first thing I did was stop at HF and bought another one. I bought a couple adapters and I leave them on the attachments that I can't use the hook on.

    I have a set of pallet forks that I had the same issue with. I just took my cutting torch and cut a slot just wide and deep enough for my top hook. You could probably do the same. If a torch isn't your style then drilling a 1 1/8" hole and cutting the rest of the slot with a hack saw would probably do the job too. With the light weight of the rake I wouldn't worry about the loss of strength.
