    Default 3 point hitch hitch and then some.

    Has 2 reese style hitches one for the gooseneck trailers, and the other for your tag along trailers. Has one drawbar for pulling my large leveler. The weight bracket holds about 10 43 lbs. JD wights. On top is a place to run hydraulic lines for the hydraulic cylinder. Not pictured is a stand that gets pinned in the lower reese style hitch. While the hitch is on the tractor you place the stand in to the lower hitch, and pin it. Then lower the hitch and un pin it from the 3 point. Drive out and the hitch can sit there with the weights until you need it again. Fun build and works GREAT!!

    Thats a good way to haul several different things with just one item. Are the lower lift arms modified to be a quick hitch style?

    I will probally tell you wrong but its a farmall quick hitch with quick release 3 point arms installed in to the quick hitch. I bought it and believe it is pretty old, also has a brand name on it.

    Not to be picky, but I think you mean the IHC tractor has the 2-point Fast Hitch setup that IHC had?

    And you have these push-in adaptors that happen to have quick-hitch setup on the end, instead of just balls.

    Neat.

    Very handy! I've got a similar attachment without the weights. Mine started out as a 3ph fork lift and grew into a trailer mover and is in the stage of becoming a gin pole adapter as well. I've still got to get the 2" receiver's intalled for the gin poles and get the poles made. Also, need to get my 2 5/16" gooseneck ball mounted on top. Work in progress below. The last picture is my partner in crime on the project!

    I made something along the same idea last year too. It works great. Mine was thought out along the lines of 3ph weight / trailer hitch / haul wood in tree length. It weights about 70-80 lbs and I can add about 600 lbs of steel/lead weights to that.
    When I haul firewood or pull a trailer I keep it around 300lbs just for extra traction but for heavy loader work I add all the weight I can.

    Here is another image I just found that would show a little more how it works. The two receiver tubes in the lower corners take 2x2" tube that I welded a rod into. I can put another 120 lbs of gym weights onto each of those when needed. The log pulling happens from two points. I have two chains that have a slip hook on one end and a grab hook on the other. I loop the chain around the log and hook it onto one of the top grab hooks. Then I hook the chain's grab hook back onto the chain just above where it comes out of the slip hook and slide the slack part into one of the lower hooks. That way the pulling force comes from the lower link arms and my contraption only has to hold the logs off the ground. The tube with the hook on top is also 2" receiver material, but I haven't a particular use for that yet. May be you guys can give me some ideas. I used it because i had the extra steel.
