Got a ranchex cat 1 quick hitch delivered today from Amazon for 149 including shipping. First impression of the hitch and how it fits is pretty good. The finish of the hitch isn't as pretty as pretty as an imatch hitch but for 149 I wasn't expecting anything better than I might weld and paint in my backyard. I am by no means an expert at either if those things. In short it looks as good as I expected it to. The paint doesn't match but that is fixable.
The important part of it though is that it fit exactly like it should. The "cat 1" version of the quick hitch doesn't require bushings to fit cat 1 implements. I tried it on my box blade and it fits perfect. It's rock solid with no slop in the pins. I also have no issues with the top hook not fitting.
One thing that is a plus for the x700s that I didn't think about (this is true for any quick hitch) the added length the quick hitch puts between the tractor and the implement means the implement gets raised higher in the air. I didn't measure it to say for sure but there is a definetly more ground clearance on my box blade now. For us limited cat 1 hitch folks that's a really nice plus that isn't mentioned as a benefit of a quick hitch.
So for 149 bucks I'm pretty happy with this purchase and it is so much better than pulling pins and lining up the draw bars.
