 3 pt. Trailer/ Lift attachment

I posted some new pictures and I included the new 3 pt. trailer hitch with the new pics. This hitch also is can be a cherry picker lift, kind like the engine plucker lift jack. The top reciever is where the lift goes and it also can accept a goose neck hitch as well. I wish I could weld and fabricate like my buddy can! I still have to paint it up nice & pretty but I was so pleased with the work he did, I just had to hurry up and post some picks!

That is pretty nice.

I am in the middle of welding an adapter up similar to what Mark posted before, but I think that I can modify it to include the cherry picker idea.

This hitch comes in REALLY handy for moving the boats and trailer around. The Whaler almost dragged me down the hill with it last week and my daughter saved the day and put a block of wood behind a tire to stop it. Pulled about every muscle in my body trying to slow it down. I should have known better than to move the boat like that.

Chief, you may find you will need some provision for tying the hitch down.

If the tongue weight goes the wrong way(hitting a bump or something)it will slam your three point hitch against its upper stops, doing it no favors in the process.

Good point Mark. I hadn't thought about that but I had that problem on my Cub 154 Loboy. I will keep an eye on that when I try it out but I think I have enough tongue weight with the Whaler and definitely with the Sea Ray and trailer.

On my TC45, they had to take the drawbar hanger off when they put the backhoe subframe on. That left some tapped holes in that lower differential housing that I was planning to put an eyebolt into to tie a chain to the top link mount on the lift attachment.

I may make something more substantial, however, because the 3PH can lift a substantial load and might bend eyebolts and break a chain smaller than 1/4 ".

Chief, that looks pretty nice. I really like the cherry picker idea. It looks like some welding equipment is in my future - that's a skill I'd love to acquire.

Jeff, I wish I could take credit for that and weld/fabricate so well but credit goes to my firewood cutting partner. I have it all painted up John Deere Industrial yellow. Had a bunch of 10 year old cans so that is what it got. Looks good.

Chief, sharp looking hitch rig, but just a thought, design-wise.

The point about the tie-down is important, tongue weight aside, if you try to use too much brakes and the boat doesn't agree it will try to find another way to make up the difference in speed between tractor & trailer. This usually translates into vertical travel in the 3pth if there is nothing to physically stop it.

The suggestion I wanted to make was aimed at the stopping ability, or lack thereof, with one of those big boats of yours out back of that Deere.

If you took a piece of square tubing the right size to go in the downward-angled receiver tube (2"x2" presumably) and of a length such that it was just clear of the ground with the trailer fairly level, welded a base plate with teeth on the bottom of it, and inserted it pointing forwards and downwards under the 3pth it would act like a 'Flinstones' skid-type emergency brake if the load got away from you. Lowering the 3pth would cause it to bite into the ground, hopefully stopping, or at least helping to stop the trailer.

I figure it would be better to mess up the ground a little than to mess up your shorts a lot.....Laughing out loud

Best of luck.
