 iMatch gotcha

I received the Rankin 3ph pallet forks with iMatch modifications a couple of weeks ago and just got around to trying them today. And... they don't fit. It seems as if Rankin modified them for pin spacing, which seems correct, but they neglected to actually try them before shipping them.

The iMatch quick-attach hitch has two swivel-out brackets that lock the bottom implement pins in place. However, the Rankin forks have supports that hit the iMatch swivel-out brackets, preventing the bottom pins from slipping into the hooks.

So, if you are shopping for iMatch compatible implements let this be a heads-up that you may want to try before you buy.

I'm not sure yet what we're gonna do about this but I'm sure the dealer will make it right.

 iMatch gotcha

I found a simple solution to the Imatch dilema. I got rid of my Imatch Smile Went to Tractor Supply and bought a quick hitch similar in theory to the Imatch but with one big difference, the new quick hich has an adjustable top hook. (Also includes a second adapter for other non-standard fits. I can't imagine why JD didn't incorporate this feature in the Imatch. P.S. The JD loader forks are a bit pricey but still is one of my biggest "back" saver.

An adjustable top hook wouldn't have fixed this problem. I'd like loader forks but they simply won't lift the load that the 3ph will (1000 lbs light).
