 What's the limitation?

Can anyone tell me what the limitation is on a "limited Cat 1" three point hitch? I'm looking at the JD2210 and wondering if this is something that will come back to bite me in the future? All the other models I'm considering are just straight "Cat 1".

I think the limitation is mostly how high the 3-point can lift. It would be especially noticeable with implements that have high lift requirements like post hole diggers or plows.

So, if I'm planning to use a PHD you think I should look at another model tractor to begin with?

I have a B2910. Just because they say Catagory I does not mean much. Take a look at the max wt on each and fit this to your impliments. I notice a dramatic difference in not just thickness of the metal but in the design of the JD 4310 and L3130 3PH compared to the B2910 and all are Cat I.

Bear in mind that I have no personal experience using PHDs on limited hitches, but I would say if you have holes to dig that a standard hitch would work better. I'm sure others here will chime in with more informed opinions. I seem to recall some PHDs would work on the limited hitches but the auger size was small.

As someone with a MF GC2300 who has learned mostly in hindsight, I'd say everything above is true. Also, petushead's point about weight of the tractor can also be applied to the implements themselves. Implements for this size tractor tend to run light; depending on what you've got in mind, this may or may not be important to you. Any changes in topography will be easily relayed to a backblade, for instance.

Also (again from experience) think about your desire/need for position control with the implements you plan on using. I don't remember on the JD, but with my MF it's all by eye, and sometimes that's a pain in the butt.

Finally, make sure to check the width of the "top link slot" on the tractor against a "standard" toplink for Cat 1. As I recall, mine was just a bit narrower and required me to grind down a standard top link.

Good luck.

There are hitches built in many sizes normally corresponding to the size of the tractor. They start a Catagory O, that is for some of the larger garden tractors like the 400 series on deere and the super size cadets. Then they move in full size to catagory 1, but there is a half size at each break giving an O/1 catagory hitch and this is where the sub-compacts fit. The catagory 1 hitch actually goes up to 60 horsepower and more on some lighter made tractor chassis's and then you run into catagory 1/2 than to the full catagory 2. there are more hitches made going to 3 and 4 as well with the half sizes in between.
