    Default Harbor Freight Quick hitch more???

    Well the other thread was getting rather large so I thought I would ask in a new thread. I am still waiting for mine ordered in September backordered with an expected delivery date of November. I assume no one else has gotten one this month. I also would like to know the width of the lower pick-up arms from the inside of one to the inside of the other. I have an attachment that has a width of 27" between the inside edge of the lower pins

    Hey guys,
    I've been following all the threads about these hitches and had been considering ordering one. A Harbor Freight store opened a couple of miles from my house so I stopped in for a visit. They had the quick hitches in stock and they were priced at 69.99 so I bought one. I'll check the fit with my implements later this week, see if any adjustments are necessary and then decide if it was worth it. I'll keep you posted.

    I also looked @ one here. I did have a problem with the fingers that hold
    in the implement pins. They did not appear to lift up enough to get the implement off thedevice. Is there any tricks for this, otherwise, I did not find it useable.

    Mr. Jimi. Is that 26 & 3/4 inches center to center, or inside to inside, on the lifting points of the quick hitch itself? I have read some of these threads and except for the engagement slot being 1.250 inches, while the lift arm "eyeballs" OD are 1.375", I haven't seen or heard of any other dimensions. Interested in ordering one but need to measure all of my "stuff" first. I have no problem opening the slot to make things work, a minor inconvience for the price really...............if I can use one.

    elalexander, The one I bought measured 26 3/4 between the mounting hooks.
    My mower is 27" wide at the pins, so it didn't fit. I believe the ASAE spec calls for 27 1/2" wide between the hooks on a QA. Some people have used a jack to spread the arms on the HF QA. I just returned mine rather than do that.

    I had the same problem with the inside to inside width between where it hooks into the lower arms being an inch or so too narrow. All I did was take a bottle jack on its side with a piece of 2 x 4 between and moved them 1.5 or so inches apart. It was easy and worked like a champ.
