 Need advice on 3 pt. hitch quick attachments

I own a new 4300 HST (love it so far) and use it at a horse stable for a variety of different tasks. We end up swapping out 3 pt implements several times a day. Does anybody have any experience with any of the "quick attachment" gizmos (that's probably not the technical term) that allow for easier hooking and removal of 3 pt. attachments. If it makes any difference, the attachments we use most often do not require PTO hook up. I'd appreciate any advice from anyone who owns or has tried any of the gizmos. By the way, a collective thanks to all of you who share your knowledge through this board, it makes it a lot easier for us tractor newbies to make sound decisions.

I have the Freedom Hitch system and like it. The tractor and implement parts are triangular. Made by Midwest Industries of Ida Grove, Iowa. (1-800-586-3811) I recommend you call and ask for a free video tape that shows how the system works. On rear utility blades you need to have a support stand that holds the frame upright. I find that when moving from one implement to another, it is usually necessary to slightly adjust the length of the top link of the 3 point hitch to get the tractor part and the implement part of the Freedom Hitch to mate. I can do this from the tractor seat with no difficulty. There is a similar brand called Delta Hitch. I don't have a phone or address for the manufacturer.

There have been a couple of discussions about this in the past in this board, but you may not be able to find them so I will repeat my input on the subject. The general consensus is that the Land Pride system is the best. I have not tried it because the price is prohibitive for me. There is a systme called Delta Hook which looks pretty good and can be accessed through a search engine. I use a Speeco Quick-Hitch about which there is some controversy. It is cheap (149-169 dollars) and rather crude and probablly not adaptable to all kinds of implements. I have had good luck with it on rotary cutters and dirt scoops. Depending on the brand of implements you have some modifications of their hitchs may be required. I have been able to do these my self at nominal cost so far. The lower link adapter bushings that come with the hitch may require some machining to work right but this costs about 20 dollars per implement. Since purchasing the Quick-Hitch I have come across another system thats looks very interesting. Stevent Tractor in Coushatta, Lousiana (1-800-333-9143) sells something called 3PT EASY HITCH ($124 for category 1) Its worth a look and I sure would have considered it had I known about it.
