    Default Quick hitch with Kubota ballast box

    Anyone have this setup? Seems the top center pin is recessed too far back to hook up properly. I assumed most newer three point implements would not be a problem. Is there an adapter I can use? Anyone else run into this?

    I have the woods quick hitch on my BX1860 for 2 years now. The center hook is adjustable, but I had to move the top pins on 2 implements to the compatible holes. Also there was an adapter that come with my WOODS unit incase of an older implement that was not designed fot the Quick Hitch systems.
    The biggest trouble that I had was to change all the hitch pins out to Category 2 or to add the adaptors to the Category 1 pins. The apapters are about 17.00 per pait at Tractor supply, but for most implements the regular Cat 2 pins work just as well.

    I drilled a new hole on the ballast box to bring the pin as far forward as it could and this has worked for me.

    I have the same issue with my kubota L box, I use chain from the box to the hook and that works for me without modifying the box itself.

    You need to take the top hook out then hook the bottom hooks then reattach the top hook when the box is in position.

    There's a thread describing an extension supplied by some company, possibly Harbor Freight, as well as a homemade one, for those things. I'll try to find it.

    Post #18 mentions a $12.00 adapter if the hook isn't compatable.

    Thanks for all the suggestions folks. I've got some good ideas to go with. Think I will start with a trip to Tractor Supply this week!
