I recently received the video and literature on the Freedom Hitch, and I just can't afford it right now. Aaah, but sure wish I could!

 Quick hitch by Freedom Hitch

Bob, maybe I'm missing something in the info. I saw at your website, but here is how I see it. The tractor side is $195 (for Cat. 1) and then a further $195 per implement. Now as a landscaper who specializes in golf course construction the economics looks like this. Tractor plus only 6 implements (pulverizer, box blade, aerator, roller, tiller, and rake) I am looking at $1365 plus since this is US $ it is $2047.50 for me in Cdn. money, and I still have to get off to hook up the hyd. lines and/or pto drive shaft right? By my calculation it would be at LEAST 200 hrs. of saved time before I even came close to pay-back, never mind any savings....what am I missing?

Murf,i like your rates.down here you can't hire a tractor for under $50/hr.Iwent for it to save my back more than saving money,I seem to be getting older and fatter and never seem to park the implements in the right spot where i can line up with the 3pt without wrestling the darn thing.I got one each tractor and impsectionsfor xmas and had three more imp.sections delivered today.I have only played around a little with it so far,but like the way it self aligns once you get close.I will get back with a real opinion later when i get them all mounted and have used them doing real work.

Reginald, I'd be interested in your opinion once you have used it for a while. I refuse to admit that I'm getting older or fatter, it's just that these things get heavier and more awkward as I mature and it's like all these things ... I'm really interested in it for my wife. Yea ... right.

Landpride has a quick hitch system that looks like it is a single piece unit that attaches to your existing 3 pt hitch and allows "from the seat" attachment/detachment. I don't know the price but I've included the web page. Has anyone used this type of quick hitch? Not having to buy a sister piece for each implement is a big plus and this doesn't look like it should be too expensive a piece of equipment

The concept is simple, but there is a "gotcha." Although there is a Standard for Cat I hitches for both the horizontal distance across center-to-center of the draft links and the vertical mast distance, that doesn't mean all Cat I implements are being made that way. What I found was a wide variation in widths and mast heights so that one coupler setting would not work for all implements. I had to redo the coupler for every implement I tried to use. There are also some implements that were too wide to fit in the quick coupler that I tried that was similar in concept to the one being sold be Landpride. I gave up and went the Freedom Hitch route. The part of the FH that attaches to the implement is adjustable so that it accomodates the variations in implement hitch geometry. After it is installed and bolted tight, you never touch it again. This problem of implement geometries not following the Standards doesn't seem to occur often in larger Cat II, III, and IV agricultural equipment.

Hey Guys,
I have a couple of freedom hitches and I love them. The main thing I like about them is the Time saving and the safety, mostly the safety. When Hitching up on uneven ground or level ground you just back up,pick up and if necessary hook up the pto then go. The time savings do pay back but the safety from not having hired help pinch a finger off is really worth it to me. TRy one and you won't be disappointed. I have one on a rototiller and beat the crap out of it and it really takes the abuse. just my 2 cents

Reg. our prices (including the exchange) are the same as yours, but I was talking about savings in labour (man hours). My calc.'s were that I would have to SAVE at least 200 hrs. of strictly 'hitching up' time before I even got my money back, never mind any savings. Considering how fast changing implements is, I think 200+ hrs. would be a LONG time. As for safety, 'hitching' is a ONE man job, then fingers are ALWAYS out of the way. It really is easy to hitch by yourself, lower the arms below pin level, back up until the closest pin lines up to the arm, lift the arm onto the pin, then back up &/or lift until the 2nd pin lines up. Oh well, each to they're own.
