    Hello rmacAU and everyone in Australia & New Zealand

    Farmbitz is the sole distributor for Pat's easy change in both Australia & New Zealand.
    We are farmers just like almost everyone else on this message board & love the Easy Change.

    After we managed to import out Cat 1 Pat's Easy Change Hitches to Australia, we spoke to Pat's and we actually asked "Why haven't we ever seen these in Australia?" The answer was that no-one had ever offered to import it. Well, we jumped at the opportunity because these hitches are just fabulous!

    We price the Easy Change at the same level as you could get it from the USA.
    So the Cat 1 based on the US price plus the cheapest delivery by US Postal Service to Australia. Plus we add a free Stabiliser Bar.
    If you do try to get the complete kit from the USA then the cost from the USA is way more than we sell it in Oz, as the Stabiliser Bar must be sent separately, so it ends up being close to USD100 more than the cheapest USA Supplier who can send it to Australia for the hitches alone. And the US suppliers do not include the Stabiliser Bar in the kit, that's an additional cost.
    We also have to charge 10% GST.

    It's a little more difficult for the Cat 2. The US Postal service will not carry the Cat 2 as it is way over their weight limit.
    If the hitches for the Cat 2 Easy Change were split and then sent separately, the entire kit would be delivered in 3 pieces, which would make it way more expensive than we actually supply it.

    It is always difficult to compare a cost in one country for the exact same product as supplied in another.

    We are the only distributor who supply Pat's Easy Change Kits in Cat 1, Cat 2 Easy Change and Weld-ons, and we even carry a few Cat 3 Hitches. Each kit comes with a Stabiliser Bar, complete kit to install [bolts, u-bolts, nuts and shims], instructions, and 3 sets of Lynch Pin Washers.

    We also have some other great implements for your tractor. The newest item is a PTO Driven Generator, for all those far from home jobs on-farm.

    That is good news for those down under. We had to use ours this week getting ready for snow and the kids were gone so I was not looking forward to doing it alone but thanks to Pat's easy change kit it was a snap.
