    Default JD 3 pt lift arms.

    Does anyone have this kind of lift arm for their JD. Would this be used in place of a quick hitch? Can different balls in the lift arm be used for cat I vs cat 0 or cat II? Would the lift arm instead be used the bushings on implements to make it the same Cat III pin size?
    Ocassionally I would like to use my 4520 with some blades and equipment that are only set up for cat II. Would this type of lift arm work with cat II or III pin size?

    Your link went somewhere else, but after some searching I found the ball and claw hitch. This picture might help with your question. BTW the part number shows no longer available.

    Found this on page 41 of a JD brochure online. It has an October 2005 date.

    Thanks for posting the pictures. The top picture I believe is the toplink. The old JDs had toplinks similar to that shown. The bottom picture, the lift arm but I assume it is pictured upside down. Is it a europeon option? I was wondering if the bottom could function like a Pat's quick hitch but have interchangeable balls depending on attachment?

    It is similar to Pat's quick hitch. Looks like it was a USA option since that brochure was for North America. I would guess it only accepts one size outer diameter ball so other category balls would need to work within that. Probably really need to see one to measure what will fit through the hook.

    I can find part numbers of LVA11885 and LVA11900 on the JD website for the lift arms. It would suggest they are available. I will give dealer a call.

    Might have to cruise around and look for a old 3020... they had that claw top link - maybe some 4020's too..

    Have never seen the lower links with a claw, though. Might have to give up on my quick hitch..

    Checked on price of ball and claw lift arm. They are available. 1 arm was $410. I think that idea will go to the very bottom of the wish list.

    Not surprising since the price for one standard draft arm is $272 and a telescoping one is $441.

    If go through sales, telescoping draft arms are $332 and I think that is for a pair.
