 BX2200 3 Point Hitch

Has anyone tried hooking up a 3 point hitch implement on a BX tractor? I tried hooking up a BX2200 to a JD 413 rotary cutter and couldn't get the draft arms far enough apart to hook it up!!!! Kubota claims in their literature that the BX tractors have a Category 1 three point hitch but it looks like a Lawn & Garden Cat 0 three point hitch with Cat 1 hitch balls!!!!!!

there are different width's of all catagories of hitches. Cat 1, cat2, cat3, some times on different applications you need to reverse the pins and have them to the inside. This can be of some inconveince the first time but once the hitches are set up to work properly your all set.

On many small tractors with 3 points that can be a problem. Did you take the pins off the implemant & reinstall them pointing in?

I don't think so. SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and ASAE (American Society of Agricultural Engineers) are very specific and it appears these tractors are out of spec.

If you look at the BX sales flyer they show the pins on the box blade facing inside. There are a lot of small Cat 1 impliments that use Cat 0 spacing. so just stick to impliments that allow the pins to be reversed or are at the Cat 0 width.

I would also like to see a copy of this report. Is there any other specifcations that are used in the rest of the world? The information that I have on three point specifications states that Cat 0 is for less that 20 HP and Cat 1 is for 20-45 HP. The BX is rated at 18 or 22 HP depending on the version. But I have seen this type of hybrid hitch on other compact tractors in the past. Please Post this report or provide a link to a site were I can read it.

So far, I have only used a 5' rear blade on my BX. Off and on without problems. Checked the JD site, the 413 is a Cat-1, so it should work (if not, something is out of specification somewhere). I assume you loosened the turnbuckle. May have to totally release the turnbuckle all the way to 'spread' wide enough just to get on. Have you consulted your Kubota dealer? (As a BX owner, I am concerned about this, and would like to know the resolution).

The Category 0 hitch STANDARDS are controlled by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) while Category I and larger are done by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). These are pages contained in very large books--not reports that can be easily mailed. You might be able to find them in major libraries. However, the content is extremely dry reading. It basically indicates distances between draft link ball centers, mast heights, and many more details. Now the real problem that is being addressed in this thread comes from the fact that at the Category 0 and Category I levels, manufacturers of the implements often fail to follow the standards carefully. This is in contrast to Category II and up for large ag tractors where they do tend follow the standards. As a consequence, you will find Category I implements with a wide range of distances between draft link balls as well as mast heights. Furthermore, when trying to use some Cat I implements on Cat 0 tractors or small compact utility tractors "built low to the ground," the vertical height of the implement draft pins when the implement is parked may be very high relative to the tractor draft links. When attached and raised, the implement just barely clears the ground. (Been there--done that!!). The bottom line is that the only sure way to know is to actually try the implement with the tractor before buying the implement. If you stick to small light duty Cat I implements that can have the pins reinstalled pointing inwards or if the implement has "bridge" pins that just happen be centered properly for your tractor, you can usually get a working combination. (Sorry for the long post--I'm a friend of Mark Chalkley and picked up some of his habits.)
