 I-Match info needed

I just purchased an I-Match for my JD 4700. Are there different sizes of these? It looks really small on the back of my tractor. Also, looking at the plates where the top link attach, these plates look to be about 3/16 - 1/4" thick - no where near as heavy duty as the steel on the tractor or the implements I have.

Any hekp here would be greatly appreciated.

I think there's just the one size. The pins are sized for CAT-3 implements IIRC. Never heard of one breaking.

Thanks for the reply - I guess I'm just worried about the thickness of the steel its made from.

Do you or anyone else have any pictures of how implements were modified to fit an I-Match? I have to modify two of the three I have.

 I-Match info needed

My pic #19 shows what I did on a Jinma chipper to make it compatible. The following info is from an earlier post I made on the subject. There's also I-Match info in the archives if you do a search.

The top pin should be 15" above the bottom pins and close to the same vertical plane. If it is set back 6-8" from the bottom pins the I-Match can't hook onto it.

There should be enough clearance under and/or behind the top pin to allow the I-Match hook to slide underneath it and then lift up and hook onto it. Sometimes when a horizontal cross member runs beneath or behind the top pin the I-Match hook won't fit under it.

Also, the I-Match latches the bottom links in place with cams that swivel out. Sometimes structural components on the implement may prevent the cams from swiveling all the way out and locking in place.

I've found the only sure way to be sure an implement works with I-Match is to hook one up and try it. Two brands of 3ph pallet forks I looked at claimed to be I-Match compatible, but it was obvious neither manufacturer ever tried one because they weren't. They had I-Match dimensions but structural interference prevented them from working.

Check out the Land Pride Quick Attach. The top hook is adjustable to fit a wider range on non john deere attachments
