    Being there are so many JDs out there, the 3005 I bought has an angled set of arms with a bend near the end. Will this product fit this tractor with no problems? I see the ball at the end has to take care of the angle of the arms.
    Thanks

    What a brilliant idea, having a stuffed back due to a tractor accident, this would make life easier. Will this fit a BX2230? and are there any dealers in Australia that have them? If not there should be.

    When I click on the link for the "Pat's NEW easy change System" it directs me to the main forum menu.

    So... how do I get to see the "NEW" easy change system ?

    What is different between the old system and the new system ?

    Thanks.

    PAT'S QUICK HITCH CATEGORY 1 - Agri Supply
    Hmmm... Interesting how the price is considerabl;y cheaper than what is offered thru the link here on the forum. This price at Agri Supply INCLUDES the stabilizer bar too.

    EDIT: I now think that the unit offered at Agri Supply, is an "Economy" model. It's still Pat's, but a bargain model.

    I just ordered a set of Pat's easy change thru our Forum (TBN) and am looking forward to its arrival.

    I am keeping my fingers crossed that my Top-Link will be long enough.

    I don't where to turn if I need a longer link. Maybe Pat can help.... "IF" I need it.

    Hopefully mine will work.

    I notice that there have been a lot of questions regarding the effect of having the lower arms at different heights when using Pat's easy change System, eg. when grading. The issue being that the arms no longer have ball ends, so the implement pins will not be square in the arm hooks. This problem would also occur if the implement pins are not at the standard width, eg. when attaching a cat 1 implement to a cat 2 hitch.

    In Europe hook systems are very common, however these usually operate like a ball end. The hook has a spherical profile and attaches to a loose ball that is placed on the implement pin, thus forming a splitable ball joint.

    Walterscheid, amoung others, supply retro fit kits for this system. Pages 4 & 5 of the following Walterscheid brochure provide a lot of information http://www.walterscheid.com.au/Walma...DF/TAS05_B.pdf .

    I hope this is useful.

    Howdy all. Thanks for all the good info on this site.

    Went down to the mailbox just before lunch and feel like Steve Martin in "The Jerk"...'the easy change is here, the Easy Change is here'

    A couple more design iterations and this excellent quick hitch is going to be an agro-mechanical work of art...

    Been looking for a good hitch that replaces my 4lb sledge hammer and footlong punch, while letting me squeeze in to hook up the PTO, Pat's does the trick (btw, way better than Kubota's telescopic lower links).

    Can't wait to put these babies on my new M7040 narrow cab as soon as the Lodi plant ships it.

    Keep up the good work Pat.

    Here's the new design that is shipping now. The main differences that I can tell are the new release and its lock.

    I saw that Pat already did mention a link. It'll take me too long to find the post, so here's the link Pat provided Top Links

    I have looked at the walterscheid hitch and found it a lot more expensive than Pat's Easychange, hundreds of $$ more.
