Installing fasthitch on SC - UPDATE

Postby tmays » Fri Feb 22, 2013 12:44 pm

My seat base is not drilled for the shaft that goes through it for a fasthitch. Is it as simple as drilling the two holes, or should I get a different base? Thanks I realize there is a bracket that bolts to each side

There is also a passageway for hydraulic lines under the seat base. I would opt for the correct base for the Fast Hitch.

Thanks Don. I took your advice and got one off eBay. I decided to keep my original one in case I decide to ever go back like it was

Dang, dollar short and a day late...

When Dad and I put the fast hitch on the Super C, we just drilled the holes through the seat box with a hole saw.

The hydraulic hoses we just ran across the platform. Then again we're used to that because all our letter series have hydraulic hoses running across the platform for the rear remotes. Been doing it that way for the better part of 40 years in my experience.

That hitch sure looks nicer than it did when it lived down south. The northern SC always looked nice though. Good job Thomas. :{_}:
