 I MATCH QUICK HITCH

Probably 1/3 to 1/2 of implement manufacturers make I-Match compatible implements. Just ask 'em when shopping! They sometimes charge a bit more. Those that aren't I-Match compatible can often be modified for $50 at a local welding shop.

By the way, it's a lot easier to read posts when you type in lower case. All upper case is considered to be "yelling".

Check out the worksaver quickhitch QH-101. It has an adjustable top hook to compensate for implements not made to spec. I have one on order and can't wait to try.

I've had three implements that weren't iMatch compatible and an adjustable top hook wouldn't have solved the incompatibility on any of them. I'm not saying an adjustable top hook doesn't add value, just that it's not a cure-all.

 I MATCH QUICK HITCH

I haven't run into a problem with the width yet.

A set of Rankin pallet forks I had (that they said were iMatch compatible) hooked up, but the cams that swing out to lock the bottom pins in place hit the frame. I returned those.

The 3-point carryall I have didn't have enough clearance between the top pin and the carryall frame to insert the hook. It only had about an inch of clearance. I had that modified by a welder.

On my Jinma chipper the top pin is 18" above the bottom pins which is three inches higher than the iMatch. An adjustable top hook would have helped here except that the top pin was also set 6" further back than the bottom pins and the iMatch frame would have hit the chipper body. I'm having that modified by a welder now (if he ever finishes it).

 I MATCH QUICK HITCH

I picked my Worksaver Quickhitch at the local Deere dealer. We compared Imatch and Worksaver (actually built by SpeeCo) side by side, QH-101 was heavyer construction with more options, Ajustable top hook, top hook adapter bracket for the backset you talked about on your chipper, and bushings. I had to cut the bushings and add a couple washers to fit the lower pins on my Rankin box blade, but no welding. I have more bushings on order for the rest of my implements. Best of all it cost less than the Imatch with more options. Definatly worth considering and you get more bang for the buck.

Less than 20% of MFG's make I-Match compatible implements. I-Match should be outlawed!! It's JD trying to make it so you the consumer will have to choose only the JD implements. There is 50 years of standard use for Cat 1- 3 point hitch having a 18-20" measurement from lower lift pins to the toplink pin & JD wants to change the world to 15". They will fail.

I doubt that they will fail, given that my JD dealer is selling iMatch stuff hand over fist. They don't have to sell to all brands, just theirs. It seems to me that it's not a bad thing for implement manufacturers either - there's no reason why you can't make and sell iMatch stuff at a price premium. You could still sell implements for less than JD branded products, and you'd be stealing market share from them rather than letting them steal it from you.

There is a set of standards that most manufactures follow. By doing this it makes it so us tractor folks can buy a gadget that saves alot of time and hassle. I think its a great idea and I'm sure it will improve as time goes on.
