I am getting tired of waiting for the new Imatch to come out and would like opinions on the TSC Cat 1 Quick Hitch. Thank you in advance.
Andy,Honestly, I looked at the TSC quick hitch, and other than color it looks to be about the same as the HF one. Even the online photos look alike. That said, I have had no problems with my HF quick hitch other than extending the top hook to get rid of the problem with implements rubbing the top frame and bolts. That seems to be the only problems anyone has had with them.
Yup, I hear ya. In fact I was initially looking for a Deere iMatch but no place had any in stock back in May when I was looking for one. I posted about my search (no local JD dealers had any, no TSC locations, and I ended up driving to the next town's HF to get the one I did find). One point I am interested in is whether any non-Deere implements rub the adjustment bolts on the new Deere iMatch. I would hope Deere built it so none of their equipment rubs, and so far it seems no one has had the rubbing issue with it. I'll have to check one out at my dealer when they have one sitting around, but my guess is the hook is extended 1/2" or so to eliminate the problem. I'm sure the JD engineers knew what the issue was.Andy,
For someone like me who has zero welding ability and no welder, extending the top hook would be a HUGE problem.
