5 Stars Pat's back saving quick hitch

Yes

Michael Poletti from NC wrote (April 12, 2015):

I got tied of wrestling with 3pt hookups on my Kubota BX 2370 too the point I would avoid it and just put off changing implements. Bought this from Agri Supply at a great price and what a time saver ,no more crow bars to change implements & the stabilizer bar that comes standard here saves time as well. Get a ruler measure the distance set the bar and back up to the pins. I love it.

5 Stars Pat's Quick Change Hitch

Yes

Smokey from FL wrote (April 09, 2015):

I have a 45 HP tractor I use to maintain my small hobby farm. Along with the tractors I have a "bush hog", box blade, and disk harrow. Changing implements can be a bit of a hassle with just the standard 3 point as each of these are quite heavy. Horsing them around by hand to get the hitch pins to line up correctly is hard on my old back. With Pat's I just back up to the implement, raise the lower arms and the pins lock in. Minor errors in positioning are much less of an issue. A secondary reason I purchased this system is that it moves the implements back a few inches. This eliminates an issue I was having with my "bush Hog" bumping the tractor tires during a sharp turn. The castings are extremely beefy and I anticipate many years of service from them. This item also comes with the stabilizer bar when ordered through Agri Supply. This makes the item a great value through them. As always, the service and speed of delivery was great through ASC.

5 Stars EXCELLENT PRODUCT

At 74 years old, I am tired of manhandling 3pt. equipment into position. I am away from my tractor for the winter, but in April I will be back, and ready to try my new Pat's Quick Hitch. The hitch design, and fabrication (cast) are very good. I have just convinced a friend to order a Pat's Quick Hitch from ASC as well.

5 Stars Wish I had bought these sooner!

Yes

pat from FL wrote (December 21, 2014):

Makes changing implements by yourself much easier. No more getting on and off tractor and kicking pins in. I used these on a jd 1070 and like others said the bolts could have been shorter. But that an easy problem to fix and I understand that they are made to fit a wide variety of lift arms so I'm still giving em 5 stars.

5 Stars Great Product

Yes

Edwin Delo from PA wrote (November 01, 2014):

Not only is this a great product but Greenwell Mfg. is a great supplier. I bent one of the U-bolts and couldn't find one locally. Called Greenwell and in 3 days I had the bolt and shim. And, sent NO charge. Don't find people like this very often.

5 Stars Greatest thing since sliced bread!

Yes

Mike from NC wrote (August 20, 2014):

Excellent tool. Works very well. Saves a lot of trips on and off the tractor. The only thing, the bar that holds the lift arms together will open up some if you have to back up more to adjust one side. I took a piece of 3/8 rod and bent the 2 ends and made me a rod that won't move that fits all my implements.

4 Stars Mixed feelings on the easy change.

Yes

Lee from MI wrote (July 08, 2014):

Bought this so the Mrs. could more easily install and remove implements when I am away from the home. She use the tractor as much as I do and struggles getting certain implements on the tractor. Instructions were good and detailed. It did require a fair amount of shimming to get them to sit right on my JD 4310 but no complaints. Biggest reason I only gave it 3 stars is because of the bolts used to brace it on the lift arms. They are really a low grade bolt and as another stated they are much longer than they needed to be. I would have changed them but the local hardware store was closed and I was eager to use it. I wish I would have waited because I ended up snapping one of the bolts off tightening it with a 3/8 drive socket wrench. Would have been great if the were a shorter heavier grade bolt or came with torque specs. I wasn't even using a cheater bar. As for hooking/unhooking this thing really does work good especially with heavier implements. I would buy again but if I do th

5 Stars Impressive Quick Disconnect

Yes

WMB from FL wrote (June 04, 2014):

Add me to the list of folks who are impressed with Pat's Quick Disconnect. It fit my JD 3320 tractor perfectly, and the toplink is plenty long enough too. Made from very heavy duty steel it is very durable, and takes all of the work out of hooking up implements. Also, the price from Ag Supply just seals the deal.

5 Stars Very Happy I Bought It

Yes

Tom C from SC wrote (May 05, 2014):

I bought this because changing implements was always a chore. I looked at getting the other style quick hitch (looks like a large inverted U) but after researching and measuring my implements, I realized that style would not work without major modifications to my implements. The main problem was that the inverted U style has a fixed width and many implements have varying widths at the bottom link points. Ok, now for the Pat's 3-Poing Quick Hitch: I love it! The width can be adjusted to accommodate all my implement link width using the adjustable stabilizer bar. I marked the widths on the bar rod and it makes setting the width for each implement a breeze. By the way, the bar is included with the Quick Hitch at Agri Supply and not at the other sites I looked at. It wasn't even available at one place. You do have to manually connect the top link, if used, but that is easy to line up once the bottom links are attached. I have nothing negative to say. This is a product that performs like it was intended (due

4 Stars One of the most universal quick hitches available

Yes

Ken from GA wrote (April 14, 2014):

Installing 3 point equipment is a pain. I researched for some time the available quick hitches. Each has some good as well as not so good points. The main problem with some quick hitches is they are basically made for the same width equipment. Since all my equipment had different widths, I decided to try Pat's hitch, since they allow different widths. The hitch parts are well made and install easily. To help with the connecting of each piece of my equipment, I made a stationary length stabilizer arm and color coded it to the equipment it goes with. I also made my own Lynch pin washers by welding two 1/2" nuts on flat washer, so the washer cannot move out of position while lifting the arms.

5 Stars Great hitch for one man hookups

Yes

Tim from NC wrote (March 19, 2014):

Just got this hitch a few days ago. Installed it on my Kubota L3800. I cant begin to tell you how much easier it is to hook up your 3pt equipment especially if your by yourself. It makes life SO much easier than having to get on and off the tractor to get everything lined up just right with the regular ball arms. I would definitely get the crossbar as it will hold your arms in the exact position to hook up whatever implement your working with. Long story short, if you have a 3pt hitch tractor and change your implements very often you will really like this system.

3 Stars Useful, but ......

Yes

Jim Armstrong from MS wrote (March 19, 2014):

I recently bought this quick hitch for my tractor. Installing the hitch was not quite a slam dunk and took quite a bit of effort and modification to fit my tractor. Here are some points to consider when purchasing: - The instructions give a range of lift arm sizes the hitch will fit, 2-3.75 inches if I remember correctly. My arms were on the small side, which creates several problems on installation. The hitches come with two spacers to level the hitches. Using both of the spacers, it still would not level. I had to add an extra ½ inch spacer plus the two included with the hitch. The hitch comes with two sets of set screws, but with the smaller lift arms the bottom set screw does not contact the lift arms. - With the additional length added to the lift arms, 4 inches, you may have to replace your top link. I had to replace mine. - After the installation, you will have long bolts sticking out from the hitches from the set screws and the U bolt. I don't like that. - I haven't tried any of my PTO eq

I bought this hitch because i was tired trying to lined up pins, After installing I back up to the brush hog lifed up and it was on, installed top link and pto shaft. I loved it, the hitch is a one man operation.

5 Stars great one man hitch

Retired from TX wrote (August 29, 2013):

I bought this after prying the brush hog on and off too many times. This hitch took about half an hour to put on, then I back up to the brush hog and hook on to it, what a Dream no prying.

5 Stars THE BEST

No

GEORGE HOOVER from IN wrote (April 19, 2013):

I HAVE PAT'S HITCH ON FIVE TRACTORS AND LOVE THEM. EVERYBODY ASKS ABOUT THEM

5 Stars A great help

Yes

Kevin from MD wrote (April 09, 2013):

I have been using this on a cat 1 hitch on a rather large tractor. It works wonders when you implement is not sitting exactly level or you have ruts that your tractor wheels get into while hooking up. You may still have to pry with a 2x4 from the side to get the piece centered, but it says tons of aggravation over the normal ball hookup. These will snap into place and lock themselves in. The only other thing I recommend is a hydraulic top link. In fact I am not sure which one has a greater value for me. The hydraulic top link with a round bale spear is as good as it gets for moving round bales.

5 Stars Faster and easier one person hookup

Jim from IA wrote (August 22, 2012):

I installed it on a kubota 4740 with cab, it only took about 20 minutes to install. I found the cross bar to be of littel use, as it got in the way of the PTO shaft.

4 Stars Great For One person hookups.

BleMtnFarm from KY wrote (August 19, 2012):

I have used this for a couple of years. It is very good for one person. Definitely get the stabilizer bar for ease of hook ups. Also, the hitch only comes with enough washers for 3 implements. If you have more than 3 implements, definitely order more washers. The springs and metal that holds the couplers open are fairly weak. Over all a very good hitch system for cat 1 tractors.

5 Stars

Grass cutter from VA wrote (July 04, 2012):

I have a John Deere 4120 and use multiple implements and this has made my life much easier. It is very ease to install on the tractor and I highly recommend this. I can hook-up and disconnect in about 2 or 3 minutes without a big bar to move this around.

2 Stars not worth it on small tractors

J. Poole from SC wrote (June 15, 2012):

The hitch is so bulky that you have to be just as precise in your alignment as with the traditional hitch to get the things to snap instead of either picking up the implement on the hitch body or pushing it away. I suppose the hitch system might work better on larger tractors, but I'm going to go back to the traditional link arms. If possible, try before you buy.
