    Re: Coupler styles--why are there 2?

    No break-away kit. My point was MY couplers do not have sleeves. You simply pull on the hose and they disconnect. (Actually, I prefer to pull on the male end so I am not pulling on the hose, however...

    Re: Coupler styles--why are there 2?

    I see the confusion now. I went here to refresh my memory on the different standards: ISO 5675 Agricultural Hydraulic Quick Disconnects

    Re: Coupler styles--why are there 2?

    I believe the "push to connect" reference was to the Agri standard coupler... which is a push to connect and pull to disconnect. No collar or ring to release. You just pull on the hose or fitting.

    Re: CAT-2 quick hitch?

    I have a LandPride Cat-II Quick Hitch ( Land Pride Quick Hitches ).

    The webpage is a little misleading with the Category, however the QH15 is Cat-I and the QH20 is Cat-II.

    Re: Your time is not free

    Opportunity costs may look good on paper, but if it doesn't put money in your bank account it is worthless for this discussion.

    You can easily add this at any time... you just have to drain the tank. Not a real big deal.
