 3 pt hitch

Is there a way to keep the lower links on the 3 pt hitch apart when backing into a piece of equipment? I know you can adjust the turnbuckle on the check chains but it seems like such a bother all the time and I was wondering what some of you out there in compact tractor land do. Thanks for your input.

Don't bother trying to keep the arms apart, just lift them slightly higher than the pins on the implement, then back up till they are lined up and set the park brake, lower the 3pth slightly letting the arms rest on the pins, get off and move the arms out and onto the pins, VIOLA...... Best of luck.

I always have problems with that also. Just when you are all lined up, you move back or lower the arms and they swing the wrong direction. The method I use when trying to attach to the pin type connection [as opposed to where you need to get the arm in a slot and then insert the pin] is to use a bungie cord or two to hold the arms out until I can back into position and lower the arms. For the type where you insert the pin, I can move the bungie cord(s) from the seat while backing up to align wiht the slot. If the implement is movable, I come at a light angle, get one in and then slot the other by moving the implement. Obviously this is not going to work with a 600# bushhog.

Don't know if KU has them, but telescoping link arms are a godsend (especially if you have a 600# implement). Well worth the extra money.

Blocking a 3ph implement when it's parked helps. Lower arms stay about the right height, and the implement doesn't have to be leveled by hand to make the top link pin. It's a pain to pick up a 3ph implement and discover that the top link can't be extended enough to make the pin. I also have a 6' steel pry bar if I need to shift an implement slightly.

Like Murf, I don't worry about keeping the arms apart. However, I did discover some basic mechanics of 3ph's when I first started swapping implements. For example, one lower arm at a time can be lifted by hand. Either arm can be picked up, moved over and dropped into the slot. In addition, the lower link leveler moves one arm one way, and the other arm in the opposite direction. The 3ph lift moves both arms together. Lining up the lower pins usually requires adjustments with both the 3ph lift and the lower link levelers.

I think what is important to remember is that the tractor or implement can shift before all pins are made. Real good idea to make sure your fingers are never between tractor and implement members, your feet are never under anything, and you never climb in-between the lift arms.
