Hitches for a C

Postby brichter » Mon Feb 13, 2017 7:09 pm

What kind of hitches are available for a C? I have a Super C with the 2 fork fast hitch and a C with no hitch so it is limited in the implements it can use.
Was there a fast hitch made for the C? Was any other kind out there? Thanks, and I'll see you guys at the DSCF in two days.

The C came with a straight out drawbar. All rear mounted implements were attached via axle clamps. The Super C was the same until the 2-point Fast-Hitch was introduced as an option. There are aftermarket 3-point hitches that attach with axle clamps.

Jim, Were the axle clamps specific to the C or were they also used on the H, M, etc.?

The C axle housings are hex shaped, H,M are square. Clamps do not mix between those models. The hex shape was on the C, Super C, 200, 230, 240, and 404. I don't know if it was shared on any of the British models.

This is a picture of the hitch on the back of my 1952 Super C. you can see the implement clamps on each axle houseing. my 1950 C is set up the same way.

Never thought about it, but will a 2 point hitch work on a regular Farmall C ?

I realize that the TC arm(s) would need to be changed and the hydraulic valve added.

You also have to change the tool box/seat support. I think that is about it.

That would be correct Jim. I forgot to mention that. I just didn't know if there were any compatibility issues with a regular "C" over a Super C tractor

You can use the original toolbox if you are not bothered by cutting a couple of well-placed holes in it with a hole saw.

This is what we did when Dad and I installed the fast hitch on the Super C. The braces carry the weight, the toolbox is just in the way. All you need to do is remove the serial tag and the two deck bolts where the braces bolt down, put the braces in place, mark the holes, punch them out with a hole saw, and install the braces.

This response is somewhat after the fact, but if you're still dealing with this I have a spare 2 point hitch for a Super C available.
