    Alternative to iMatch?

    Stumbled upon this video on my other favorite site: tractorvideos.net and thought wow that is better than the iMatch.

    I don't have any rear PTO attachments - does the rear driveshaft usually bounce around like that? Seems like you'd smoke the joints pretty fast with that kind of imbalance.

    Cool that it hooks up both the 3pt and PTO shaft at the same time. Unfortunately - looks pretty expensive too.

    That's a pretty costly alternative!

    It's ~$2400 for the tractor side WITHOUT the PTO. Add another $250 per implement you want to connect.

    If you want the hitch + PTO drive you're looking at ~$3100 on the tractor side + ~$400 for each implement.

    If you want the hitch + PTO drive + hydro engagement = ~$5300 tractor side + ~$500 per implement.

    I'm gonna stick with the iMatch!

    If you're talking about the yellow shaft bouncing up and down, that's just a shield over the pto shaft itself

    I like the universal design of this over the iMatch. JD does make an auto PTO quick connect for iMatch but it is really expensive too.

    It's very similar to the Delta system: 3 point hitch | 3 point quick hitch | 3 point tractor hitch | The Deltahook

    Category 1 (20 to 50 HP)

    Package Price $1190.00
    Package Includes:


    Qty 1 @ $398 ea. Control Plate (60lbs ea)
    Qty 2 @ $396 ea. Receiver Plate (90lbs ea)


    But again at those prices the iMatch and bushings seem like even better deal.

    Ah....OK. Like I said - I don't have any rear PTO implements so haven't really seen it work up close.
