Forgive me if this is posted somewhere else but I have looked and could not find it. I am thinking that I would like to have the iMatch QH on my tractor but can not locate anything that tells me if it will work on the 5100E. I am also wondering if it would be advisable to use it as it list the QH as Cat 1 but the tractor 3 PH is cat 2. I do know that I would not want to use implements that are too small as the tractor would tear them up but I have a 7' HD disk that would work on the tractor as it weighs 1000 lbs. I am also looking to buy an 84"tiller and 8' Firmiseeder later this year and it would make changing these out easier. Everything that I have read on the QH makes it sound like it is ideal when you are changing implements regularly and it can get frustrating when you are trying to hook these up by yourself. Thought I would get some opinions on this.

I have been using the iMatch quick hitch on my previous 1025R and now my 4066R. It is the only way to go as it makes life a lot easier. PTO hookup can be a little bit of a hassle as spacing is a little crowded. That was on my 1025R, have not yet used the PTO on the 4066R. On your larger tractor, that may not be an issue. However, you need the cat 2 version of the iMatch. Mine uses the cat 1 version. Like everything else, when you get to bigger tractors, the attachments cost more.:gizmo:

Thanks D, Everything that I have read about the QH is positive as far as hooking up implements. I have certainly found out about the implements costing more. The price on the tiller is actually decent, $2500 for the 84" model. The cutter is another story, that is why I don't have it yet:laugh:

I have not seen the cat 2 JD QH, guess I need to check with my dealer

Besides I Match- take a look at Speeco quick hitch. Sold by EA or Everything Attachments.
I don't think those are available in CAT2.

JD does offer a Cat II quick hitch, and that's the best way to go for a 5 series tractor. The Cat I implements and hitch aren't strong enough. You bought a big tractor, don't limit it with implements that aren't heavy duty enough.
Spoken almost like you have first-hand experience. :mocking:

Everyone learns from mistakes. Wise people learn from the mistakes others have made, and some kids have to touch the hot stove for themselves. :flag_of_truce:

The important thing is my friend was there with me in my time of need when the box blade failed, being very supportive by laughing hysterically...:unknown::lol:

It was hilarious and quite amusing how fast you pretzeled that box blade. :mocking: It was a classic "hold my beer, watch this" moment even though there was no beer consumed during said pretzeling. :lol:

My local theisens has both cat1 and 2 flavors of the speeco quick hitch. I really like mine, works great and was about half the cost of green.
