    Cat 1 iMatch QH needs Cat 0 Adapter

    Wondering if someone has perhaps already built/modified a Cat 1 QH that also picks-up Cat 0 equipment? Perhaps a Cat 0 "sub QH" that could be picked up by the Cat 1 QH, and then the Cat 0 machinery, or some such? Have a number of Cat 0 implements... and while I am making the transition to Cat 1, would like to continue using several of the perfectly good Cat 0 implements. Also, these Cat 0 implements can be far better in small spaces. Ideally, one would be able to go back and forth between the Cat 1 and Cat 0 implements "quickly" (using a 1026R).

    I have never seen a "adapter" available. Sounds like a neat project though...

    I did a google search on "CAT 0 adapter" and got quite a few hits, including some commercial ones. Here's one that is on youtube:

    Yes... I have one of these.. a Brinley... so can hook the "sleeve" equipment to my Cat 0 tractor. It is not a QH, but does work well.

    Not a problem.

    Kinda, sorta wishing I had gone with the Pats System (http://www.pats3pointhitchsystem.com/page/7229 ) , instead of iMatch, being I have several perfectly good Cat 0 implements. Problem with Pats is that the draft links seemingly would have to be re-adjusted just right to match the width of the implement pins, and would have to be re-done each time one switched to the Cat 0 and back to Cat 1, etc. Also, still have to manually install the top link... which for my case, means screwing-out the Cat 1 end and replacing with the Cat 0 (for the implement end). So, not much advantage in using the QH in this case (as the Cat 0 implements can generally, because they are so small, be moved around a bit).

    Guess I will just have to keep removing the iMatch hitch when going to Cat 0: Life is hard!
