 Receiver hitch for iMatch

Does anyone know of a 2" receiver hitch product that hooks up to the JD iMatch quick hitch? I emailed Bad River but it's doubtful they have one since it's not on their web site.

Ken, I can't make any promises but I can ask my friend if he would be interested in making you a hitch like the one he made me and how much he wants for it. All you would have to do is paint it.

 Receiver hitch for iMatch

Chief, if it's not too much trouble I'd appreciate that. I like what you've done with yours. Did you ever rig up a solution to tie the hitch down so it can't rise up on you?

If he's willing to make and ship it and the price is agreeable I should probably send the iMatch dimensions to make sure it will hook right up. That is, if he doesn't already have that info.

Thanks a bunch for checking!

I am working on figuring out some kind of a safety chain that wraps around the draw bar under the transmission case. I am gonna have to look at that tomorrow. I ought to be able to figure something out.

Chief, I don't know if you've already seen this picture at Bad River on how they use the drawbar with a chain, but here's a link.

FYI, I exchanged email with Gerry at Bad River and they are just now coming out with an iMatch compatible hitch for $109. It uses the same drawbar chain mechanism to prevent uplift and it's painted JD Green. They built four initial units and two have already sold. After those four it will be a month until they have more available.

Thanks Ken. Neophyte over on the "other" tractor board sent me the picture of the safety chain. I wonder how much they would charge for just the chain. $109?????!!!!!! That is a really good price. I don't think my friend could fabricate and UPS you a hitch for that price. He is on National Guard drill right now and won't be back for another week. I will get a price from him if he is willing to do it. You may want to take those folks up on that I-match hitch before they change their mind on the price.

Chief, I think I'll go ahead and order the Bad River hitch. They have been working with their local JD dealer to make sure it fits the iMatch and they have sized it to use standard JD iMatch bushings. It would probably take your friend a couple of trips to a dealer to get all the measurements right, and I don't see how he could do it for that price. The cherry picker of your setup would be nice but the loader and bucket hooks should work for my needs.

I really appreciate the offer though.

Ken, you will like the Bad River product.

When you get it, you will find you can slide any length 2 inch square tubing into the receiver and turn it into a boom pole by shortening your top link.

It is one of my back burner projects to set it up as above with a strap running back to the top link pin for extra support.

I have already used it without the extra support to lift and maneuver my chain harrow.

That boom pole idea will work great with my hydraulic top link.

I was thinking of getting a carry all, but I figured the receiver hitch could serve double duty to both pull a trailer around and function as a lightweight carry all by adding one of those platforms that slide into a receiver. Now it can do triple-duty by adding boom pole. This is sounding like something no tractor should be without!

Can you shoot me there web address ? I'd like to oder one as well. I can use it for the hitch for a trailer, a platform that would work great for a 15-25 gallon sprayer and I also want to get one of those chain harrows from Cabelas to get better seed contact with. Maybe they'll make them a little faster if they get a couple of orders.
