    Default Ratcheting top link-CategoryI

    I've seen ratcheting top links for category II III. Has anyone seen them for category I?

    Or, an option other than hydraulic, that's easier to use than the standard wrist-breaker with jamb nut?

    No but I used one of the CatII top links a few years back by just incerting a catII to CatI toplink bushing.

    Anyone else interested? Maybe with enough interest a manufacturer will make it. Shouldn't be too tough for a manufacturer, but a stretch for those of us normal folk.

    Anyone heard of a 12 volt, linear actuator that was set up for a Cat I top link?

    I did see a ratcheting top link at quality farm and fleet - didn't check, but it looked Cat I. It would seem logical that anyone who makes a cat II or III would also make a Cat I.

    Looked on google and found this link

    also attached picture - seems like this could be adapted.

    I would imagine that the item in your attached picture could be used as a 3pt top link, however we always used to use them in a place were a hydraulic cylinder would go (like to raise 7 lower a drawbar disc... Notice how each end has a split yolk, verses what each end generally looks like on a top link.

    Why not use a racheting chain binder ? I'm sure there are some out there with the same threads as a top link.
