As with many things, it seems as the years go by, I am finding it harder to wrestle heavy steel tractor parts. I find the I-Match, and any other brand of quick hitch, to be heavy and awkward to get the pins inserted when you are trying to balance the unit and align the holes.
While I leave mine on, I understand there are times in which they have to be removed. Back hoe installation, incompatible implements, etc.
We are starting design on a universal mounting cart to suspend the hitch while you either connect or disconnect. I would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions on what you would feel to be a useful feature to make this effective and easy to use.
Here are some starting points. It will not be brand specific, any quick hitch will work. All 4 castors will swivel for maximum maneuverability. It will have a padded knee rest in the back to kneel on while you are working with the pins. It will be sturdy enough to leave the rockshaft arms and top link connected to the quick hitch (for those with a back hoe.) It will fold down for a smaller storage profile.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated to get the best end product possible!
