Differences in hitches,

Tue Nov 09, 2004 11:24 am

Who has pictures and explainations to show the difference in, 1) a quick hitch, 2) a 3pt. hitch, 3) a fast hitch, and a one point hitch. I'm only familar with the draw bar hook-up for pull hitches. It's hard to get impliments with the pull hitch setup, but also confussing when asked about these other types. What's the best way to go ???

Fast hitch and one point are the same on cub. Three point hitch can be made, but limits use of heaver implements. Quick hitch (snap coupler) is AC's hitching system, I think. See pictures of fast hitch on link below. Also view various hitches on Rudi's manuals site. Maybe someone can give links for three point hitches.

If you go to http://www.worksaver.com you will find pictures and / or diagrams for 3 point hitches. There is even a picture of a quick hitch. The terms fast hitch, or 1 point hitch mean the same thing as far as a cub goes. IH also had a 2 point fast hitch used on larger tractors.

Single point or fast hitches are no longer in production but there are a lot of implements for this hitch still around.

3 point hitches were not original to the cub but as you can see, Worksaver makes a conversion kit to add one to the cub. There are lots of implements still produced today for the 3 point hitch as it is essentially the standard for all compact tractors today. The problem there is that pto driven implements will not work with the cub pto and non-pto implements must be chosed carefully so that you do not overload the cubs abilities.
