A friend of mine has the same tractor that I have(1025R) and would like to use a couple of my attachments from time to time. :greentractorride: Everything I have is set up for my I match and he's to cheap to buy one for his tractor. :slap-yourself-emoti:slap-yourself-emotiMy question is how difficult is it to pound out the roll pins which hold the bushings in place on the attachment. I banged one one last night for just a couple min. And it didn't budge. Thanks.

I've had to do the same thing. Spray them with some PBlaster and they should come right out. It helps to use a roll pin punch.

You'd be better off buying him a quick hitch. :mocking:

But seriously, I'd think you are just asking for trouble banging out the pins every time he wants to borrow something. Also, the only thing that I can think of that has pinned bushings is my ballast box. The rest have sleeved bushings that can be easily removed. What are you knocking pins out of?

I wouldn't bang out the roll pins for a cheap neighbor.

Harbor Freight QH is what, $100!

If he is that cheap he can go buy his own implements. :nunu:

Maybe he can find a good box blade for less than a quick hitch.:lol:

Just my .02 (adjusted for inflation).
Now THAT is cheap!

They can be driven out. A properly sized punch, heavy enough hammer and supporting the pin so that it's "solid" all help. But if it were my attachments that were being borrowed, my friend would be doing the work to make them compatible to their need. Or you could loan the friend your Imatch too...

All of my bushings are held on with roll pins.

I can appreciate the situation. My brother wanted to borrow my landscape rake and he has a much smaller tractor than I do and it has a Limited Cat1 hitch. I thought about just having him get the Harbor Freight QH but as we all know, not all quick hitches are exactly the same. So I compared the time spent simply tapping out the roll pins vs. the time spent going to purchase a quick hitch and then getting it fitted to his tractor and working with my implement and the roll pins won out.


It literally took all of 5-mins to tap out the roll pins.

It's not something I would want to do every day but it happens. :)

Bushings

Wondering I know I had some strange ideas at times. But my I match has some play in the bushing length on the inside. Being that the adapters have the enlarged end on the outside to kee the implement in place. I am thinking why not use a bushing and weld a large washer on the ned with a hole to slide over the implement pin. Place that on the implement and then mount to the I match. O see no reason why would not work in a pinch if the clearance is there. Your only making the implement pin larger to hold under the I match lock and to keep it in place vertically to stay on the hook. The slide play could be eliminated by washers. All the roll pins do is keep the adapter in place anyway. Or even weld a washer to the inside of the adapter maybe to hold on to the pin. Any thoughts??

I have the HF Quick Hitch as well. It isn't perfect but it works for my needs and the price was right. While it is true that they have to be set up which takes time and many time they need to be modified slightly, once done you don't have to mess with them anymore.

What problem are you trying to solve?

I don't think any of us are advocating swapping bushings from implement to implement as you use them (although I have read posts from folks who do this). With $10 bushing sets available that just doesn't make sense.

The OP was dealing with a situation where someone without a QH wants to borrow an implement that has the bushings pinned on.

Not an ideal situation but it happens.

Do not know where you are finding the original bushing for $10 around here they are $30 plus. THe cost adds up quick for implements that you do not use a lot. AS I stated the only thin gthe pin does is hold the bushing on to the implement so it does not fall off sitting in the lot.

I can understand doing this for a family member or very good friend on a very limited basis.

Not just because someone is cheap...

I have the roll pin style adapter on my bush hog.

On the other stuff I have the TSC variety bushings that use the snap ring to hold them in place. Those aren't a big deal to remove. If you were going to swap between QH and non QH tractors that is what I would suggest using.

I have seen some folks use a straight bushings held on with a lynch pin. They work just fine.

Watch on-line for good deals on bushing sets. I bought a couple sets when Northern Tool had a sale for $9.95 per set. Several places sell them for $14.95.

$30 is what Tractor Supply sells them for. I won't even mention what the JD dealers try to get for them. ;-)

Never saw any like that. Would like to see a photo is anyone has one available.

My Idea was to make a quick swap and not have to have anything other than the bushing to hold it on. Just slide on and go

These are the bushings I have been using for most my stuff.

The Cat 1 to Cat 2 bushing goes inside of the Cat 2 to Cat 3. The Cat 3 bushing has a hole for the lynch pin to go though.

They also make Cat 3 bushings that are shorter and the pin just goes though the hole in the Cat 1 lift pin.

Yes, those are the lynch pin attachments I was referring to.

The one piece roll pin bushings are nice and I'd like to have a couple more sets.

At our TSC they are $30 each....:nunu: The set I have I got for $30 for both, since they were missing the roll pins. Fastenal had the roll pins for a couple $.

Thanks for the tip on Harbor Freight. I'll watch for a sale....:munch:


I started with the two piece bushings because I did not have everything set up to use the QH at first. One of my winter projects is to remedy that.
