    Default three point quick attach hitch

    does anyone know if there is a quick hitch that mounts to the tractor 3 point, where one can adjust the height of the top hook? I have an imatch, but some of my 3 point stuff wont hitch up due to fact that many implements vary on the top pin placement. I was curious if there was a better quick attach setup that is available. Thanks.

    i did, but id like something like the imatch. One that mounts in three places, but has an adjustable top pin. Any idea if something like that exists?

    I think it would lose it's advantage then. The advantage I see of an iMatch type system over a Pat's type of system that you can hook up some implements without getting off. If you had to adjust the top link on the quickhitch to the right position you would lose that benefit.

    Seems to me that would be worse than Pat's system because you would still have the fixed draft arm width but not be able to hook up without getting off.

    Ok, I thought I had responded to this but I guess I didn't do it right. Check out the Speeco quick hitch. Speeco Quick hitch

    I have the Speeco (mine has the Tractor supply co. brand on it) and the top link came with bolt/nut/washer sets to hold it where you want it. I replace those with hitch pins and like those a lot better. Now I don't need to look for tools to adjust the height when I change implements. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Check out www.jiffyhitchsystems.com Their hitch seems to be independent of implement configuration. A bit pricey though!

    I would find having to adjust the top hook when hooking up an attachment to my quick hitch, would not be very 'quick' (just my opinion, but it would be a 'slow' hitch instead [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] ).
    So, I changed the attachments to fit the quick hitch, and now don't get off the tractor at all (unless there is a PTO to hook up) when hooking or unhooking attachments. A few attachments that I rent, I may need to remove the I-match, but that is becomming less often as the 3pt items are adapting to the specs for the quick hitches.

    Green4710,

    I agree with beenthere about changing the implements.

    I bought a quickhitch at my local Tractor Supply Store (TSC) for $169 or $179 about 2 mos ago. It has an adjustable top link.
