I tried the quick hitch. It is a brilliant concept that doesn't work because there aren't any standards for the equipment specifications. It didn't work with my tiller since the tiller encroached on the quick hitch frame and it didn't work with my rotary mower since the upper arms were too wide to fit the pins in the hitch. So I took it back but I sure wished it had worked.

I use a Freedom Hitch, it is expensive but also a back, finger, and time saver. Have it on many implements and tractors. I rely on it because it is quick and works well with pto equipment. just my 2 cents. mike

 quick hitch

I have a John Deere 670 and my back and shoulders were acting up after lifting and shoving implements to connect them to the 3 pt hitch, so I decided to get a quick hitch. From reading input to this forum I knew that I would have to do some work to make everything work. I bought a Land Pride quick hitch with an adjustable top hook. The quick hitches sold by Tractor Supply and Northern Tool are much cheaper ($169 with fixed top hook and $189 with adustable top hook; however, the Land Pride hitch measures 27 1/2 inches between the bottom hooks and this measurement is crucial. After measuring everything I set the top hook 18 inches above the bottom hooks. My Bush Hog 4 foot finish mower hooked up perfectly, with the exception that I have to use a short chain to the top hook in order to have the required flexibility which enables the mower to ride up and down over bumps and dips. My John Deere 4 foot shredder also hooked up OK; although, I had to move the pins to the alternate location and again substitute a short loop of chain for the upper linkage. My Modern Dragon 5 foot blade hooked up fine without work. My Modern Dragon 30 inch rear scoop and my Meyers crane were a disaster and I had to take them to a welder and have the pins moved to different locations. Recently, I have slapped together crude dollies with casters so I can move the implements into position without having to lift and shove and use a bar to get them into position behind the quick hitch. I am satisfied with the results; however, it took a fair amount of work to get everything adjusted. Something I don't understand is that the bottom hooks call for the use of the little tubes that increase the size of the pins to those used with a Category II hitch. These spacers aren't expensive and are readily available at my John Deere dealer; however, without them, implements jerk around in use. I suppose that doesn't do any damage, but it seems strange that the bottom hooks aren't make for 7/8 inch diameter pins. Anyway, the horizontal measurement between the bottom hooks and vertical measurement from the bottom hooks to the top hook are crucial. Good luck if you decide to proceed with this. By the way, unless I'm mistaken, the horizontal measurement on the Northern Tools hitch is 26 inches.

Glenn,
If it's not to much to ask, what did you give for your landpride quick hitch?
I priced one and was told $318. Is landpride that much higher.

I bit the bullet and paid $320 for the Land Pride quick hitch. At that time I would have had to drive approximately 100 miles (one way) to see a quick hitches at either Northern Tools or Tractor Supply and I did not want to buy one without personally seeing it and measuring it. I was able to find the Land Pride hitch at a nearby John Deere dealer and it had an adjustable upper hook. The hardest part of the whole transaction was ignoring the looks and not-so-subtle remarks of my dearly-beloved as we drove home after buying it.

 quick hitch

One thing I should have included in my previous message was that the distance between the lower hooks of the Land Pride quick hitch (27 1/2 inches) was of primary importance. I could not have used a quick hitch with a distance of 20 inches with my John Deere Model 413 shredder or my Bush Hog 4 foot finish mower. The pins on both require a space of at least 27 inches. I really felt that my only choice was the Land Pride hitch, even though it was much more expensive.
