How to connect an atv rear blade to a 3 point hitch on X495

374 Views 11 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Sergeant
Ok I have a question about attaching implements. I currently have an atv with a lift system and the way it works is the implements have the 2" receiver on them and slide into the lift system. Now that I have an X495 I want to do a 3 point but the issues is if I do the three point and then install a 2" receiver from heavy hitch or amazon the issue is the implement and hitch receiver are both 2" female. I think I need a male adapter to connect the two but I've done a search and not found anything that could do it so I may have to make one myself.

Here is some context on one of my implements.

Yeah right idea but wrong size. I need a male male adapter to fit into the 2" receiver on both. Need something like this and drill out the smaller hole so pins are the same.https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200612793_200612793?cm_mmc=Google-pla&utm_source=Google_PLA&utm_medium=Trailers%20%2B%20Towing%20%3E%20Hitch%20Receivers%20%2B%20Adapters%20%3E%20Hitch%20Adapters&utm_campaign=Ultra-Tow&utm_content=32800&ogmap=SHP%7cPLA%7cGOOG%7cSTND%7cc%7cSITEWIDE%7cOOT%7c%7c%7c%7c16172241560%7c132442648559&gclid=Cj0KCQiA_bieBhDSARIsADU4zLesc8OrmsX0vRpThZlCLqN1QIbUsYytWc30sC7h7R6KtnC6SGykCh8aAk4QEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Find a nearby fab shop or steel warehouse and get a chunk of tubing with appropriate wall thickness.

Exactly what He did is what I have been suggesting from the beginning, the Only difference is the Bar I used as an example is set up for 2 Inch receiver implements, and it's 4 Feet Long there are different Lengths of the Bar with different insert sizes as well. Only reason I put the 4-foot Bar, You can cut it down to the length you want

What size 3 Point Hitch do You Have On the X495 do you have an OEM Limited Cat 1 or do You have an OEM Cat 0 3 point Hitch, Reason I ask is the way the Deere OEM Limited Cat 1 3 point hitch arms are Made, that Impact Pro adapter is way too Narrow to fit On the Limited Cat 1 3point arms as The Impact adapter is 6.8 inches too Narrow

Lol I thought what you showed was a 2" female, not male. Oh well, my bad :) I haven't bought the three point yet. Won't do it till spring. Just trying to plan ahead and to keep my current blade because I priced 3 point blades out and ouch....

Sometime explaining things in writing doesn't make sense until you show pictures I would suggest if you want to save money on a 3point Hitch think of Getting a 3point hitch here Hitch Kits and I suggest going with a Limited Cat 1 X Series Hitch Kit - CAT 1 While You see Cat 0 Impact Implements for the most part Cat 0 is a dead Implement Line The Two Major Cat 0 Implement Manufacturers stopped Producing Cat 0 In early 2000's . Deere still offers a Cat 0 and so does Bill Ruegg But other Than Impact Implements and Implements from this Tractor company Tuff-bilt Tractor - Tuff-bilt Tractor Systems Cat 0 is dead. See Back Prior to 2005 Cat 0 implements always cost More than Cat 1 Implements In 2000 I was Going to Get a Blade for my Cat 0 3point Hitches and a Cat 0 blade was $450 and a Cat 0/1(Cat 1 implement with Cat 0 pins facing inwards) Blade from Work Saver cost $129.00 Though Cat 1 Is Double what it cost 20 years ago it is still relatively cheap in price https://www.northerntool.com/shop/t...NbrpEGYE0DP8MQACHKMaAjFwEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds depending on the Manufacturer (y)
