Merry Christmastide everyone!!
Home of Santa Claus is at Rovaniemi Finland!
My next trial was to make lower links with quick couplers . Like Pad's or Walterscheid
To move the lower link from cabin I made this kind of stabilizer bar and lever to leveling bar.
Very easy to make.
Lower handle opens stabilizer bar and moving upper handle left-right
moves lower link right-left to proper place for hitching.
Here the yellow handle is for opening/closing the coupler.
My couplers are home made but works ok.
I see Hydraulic QH is not hot.

OK. Lets go on
You may like more EURO style quick couplers to lower links and to top link?
They are simple and cheap and do not need much hydraulic.
But there are some faults that I do not like.
a)They need guidance for lower links.
b)They have ropes for couplers. These are often broken or absent.
c Hydraulic top link is heavy
So people operates at the back of tractor.
I wanted working from cabin.
Lets try something new.

I appreciate all Your posts and opinions. I need them to go on!
I try to get better video later.John Deere is ready now to be operated from its cabin for hitching/unhitching.

Before I made a linkage to open both hook latches together from the cabin for unhitching.
Curved black lever under the window.
Now I have a new linkage to move the right lower link sideways from the cabin.
Black straight pipe lever under the window
It makes possible to use two category equipment with the same tractor.
And non standard equipment too.
Parts are quit simply

And now it has a new hydraulic top link too.
I think that this is the most cheep way to operate from the cabin.
If you like then hydraulic stabilizer bars are good too but expensive.
I have made what I can. Now you must go on!
Good luck to you
