    Put my Quick Hitch On!

    Got the Quick Hitch on the tractor it is the Black Part. Makes hooking up really just hooking up and it is ready to go. It will fit 4 things I use on the rear 3 point. It has 3 big hooks that go under the hitch pins with adapters on them. Then a bar locks over 2 of them on the bottom. This will save my back swapping things around. My 2 rear blades are like 650 & 790 lbs each! No slop in the hitch points using my bushings. I wanted all the stuff ready to go when needed so I will need more pins. I did not want to swap them around when I just hook on now. Haven't tested strength but seems well built to me. A JD One should be nicer and I had to make all the bushings but 2 which fit the snow blower perfect! On the rear snow blower I will have to make a set up for the top point pin but it should be easy with no welding.Click image for larger version.

ID:	683588Hook up of the Quick Hitch was a work out but got it on. Now the rest was easy once I had the bushings in the 6 ft box blade. I just backed up on sorta un-level ground and found the top hook would not go down far enough? Solved I just backed up and the blade tilted some and locked on the top hook. Then all I had to do is move the tractor till I saw the lower points line up and lifted the hitch in place. I jiggled the lever a little and it fell into the sockets. No play in them so snug fit and should stop wear problems. The top hook is longer so it catches first and lines you up better for the lower 2 points. Next will be the test on the 8 ft rear blade but it has the same dimensions as the box blade and inside 27 1/4" is perfect and the hook is 1 1/8" Bar Stock and fits inside the 2" Gap on most hitch spots. This will allow me to swap blades out fast to do better work.

    Tested the 8 ft Rear Blade

    Worked great but had to lower the top link hook for this pin so I will do the same on the box blade. It has a lower hole I could have used if I had checked first! Held up to grading the road with this blade for a test. Once all the tools are adjusted to fit then it will be easier to hook up.

    Seemed nice and solid using it plus another 75 lbs on the cutting edge.

    Put the Box Blade back on just had to put the Top Link Bushing on the lower hole and it works great to hitch up both. Now both are just drive up and click it on. Also learned if I raise my 3 point up all the way I can reach the Quick Hitch Levers from my seat and pull them up and drop the blade to hook up another one and not leave the cab!! So now I need to set up something to lift the Box Blade up with the front bucket easy to carry it. Then I can carry it to a job and swap it around when needed with the Rear Blade. Set up a couple chains to hook to the sides of my Loader Hooks??

    I did this so I can get it to a close by job I won't trailer the tractor unless it going to the JD Dealer or something real special. I switch Rear Blades back and forth on the job site as needed. I will come up with a better chain down method later, I have a job to take it to tomorrow. This works for me I just drive up to it with a centered level bucket till it touches the rippers and set it down. Then I can put the chains on to keep it there. There is a 3rd centered bolted on safety chain I added in case of a hook failure.

    Not a big deal to carry a Box Blade with your bucket except I will be going down the road and would hate to drive over it at 8-10 MPH!!

    Compost King, lol. He needs an old cement truck for all that compost rotation.

    Is that a King Kutter box blade that you painted JD green? Looks just like the King Kutter Pro model.
