    Just got my new imatch!!

    Makin it rain AGAIN! too much water around here! Any way I just picked up a new Imatch at my local dealer on Wednesday. It was 15% off with the sale they are running. I got that and an extra pack of bushings.

    I noticed a post where someone put Kolpin gun holders on the side of the Imatch to hold shovels ETC. What other mods or ideas have you guys came up with for the Imatch. Anything useful is very much appreciated. I am still relatively new to the 1025 R world sitting at 63 hours so any comments and advice are welcomed. I will be doing some searching on TTWT to see what he's been up to. I cant remember all the vids I have watched already... For now I only have the double heavy hitch and a Box Blade so no frequency in swapping implements just yet..

    Well you wouldn't want the imatch to feel lonely. You should probably start buying it more friends

    Definitely get one of Ken's extended top hook and pins for your I-Match. It's a game changer

    I second, third, & fourth that. Attaching and detaching implements is sooo much easier when they don't hit the IMatch frame.

    I think the new I-Matches come with the extended hooks. Mine has the extended hook. I got it in April this year.

    I’ve gotta new iMatch, don’t know if it has a longer hook but I have no problem hooking up to the six implements I own without leaving the seat. I am curious how it measures up to Kens hook.

    Ken's hook isn't longer, it extends the hook back, to eliminate the frame of the implement hitting the frame of the IMatch. For example, when using my box blade, the frames would hit when hooking up, and with the weight of the BB they would lock together. I'd have to jump on the 3PH to get them to unlock when I was done. With Ken's hook the frames don't hit, so they aren't locked together anymore, and it releases easily. Similar thing on my rotary cutter.

    We would love to see pics of your IMatch and see how it compares. Wondering if JD changed the original hook.

    I'd like to see it too, but Kenny shouldn't be worried, there are an awful lot of older iMATCHES out there that need a new hook. And we all know that JD would probably charge a fortune just for the hook.

    I saw two new brand iMatch's while I was at my local JD dealer last week, they had the same short hook as always.
