Description

The quick hitch triangle replaces the traditional three point linkage system. With the quick hitch triangle, you can hitch a tool onto a tractor in a matter of seconds without getting out of the cab. It’s also a safer and more efficient way of hitching on tools.

A male triangle is permanently fixed on the three point linkage system of the tractor. All tractor implements on the farm need to be fitted with a female triangle. The two triangles attach and are locked using a latch mechanism. To hitch off an implement, the latch is released by a handle connected with a cord to the cab of the tractor.

IMPORTANT TECHNICAL POINTS The benefits of the quick hitch system are lessened on tractors fitted with a hydraulic three point linkage as you may need to get off the tractor when hitching on in order to manually adjust the angle of the male triangle. You can temporarily adapt a few implements to the quick hitch system without resorting to making any permanent changes to your machinery by fixing a female triangle on the three points linkage of an implement. You can then trial the triangle system without altering your original implements. However, this adds more weight to the hitching system and may necessitate the addition of counterweights at the front of the tractor.
