    Default Iseki Newb - Hitch Question

    Greetings. First post here.

    Snagged this lean mean fighting machine last summer. TS1610 4x4 w/FEL, SAR? 1700 tiller, new rice patty tires that maul turf without pitty or shame, open ROPS, 300 hours if you believe the meter.

    Its got some personality and punch for such a small tractor. Really enjoying it so far.

    I've been looking at post hole diggers attachments lately. I'm not a tractor expert here. Searching the tractorbynet forums usually finds me an answer.

    From what little I've discovered, I assumed the TS1610 had a Cat 1 three point hitch. Went out to measure before buying a post hole digger and measured 20" across the lift arms. 5/8" pins.

    This is a category 0 three point hitch, yes? No category 1 implements for me. I'm not missing something am I?

    All advice or knowledge on the tractor is welcome.

    Thanks

    Here's the sizes 3 point hitch category sizes - Google Search . It is a CAT 0. I have an Iseki TM3160 and it's the same. I had a couple of implements that were for a CAT 1, a back blade and a scarifer I had made and they will work as the pins are the same diameter. Only thing is the clearance to the inside of the rear tire is close, I had to reverse the wheels to give me another couple of inches and the angle of the arms is not optimum as they're splayed out furhter than what they;re supposed to be......Mike

    **EDIT** Actually I just looked at the sizes in the chart, the pins are CAT 1 size yet the spread of the lift arms is CAT 0, so I don't know what CAT size you'd call it

    5/8" = Cat 0 if I'm reading that chart right. Thanks for the help Mike. Much appreciated.

    Current three point system just looks janky to me I guess.

    I'll order the Cat 0 post hole digger and update.
