3 point hitch

Postby dterhaar2000 » Thu Feb 07, 2019 3:32 pm

Is it possible to put a 3 point hitch on a 52 cub? I would like to add some implements to my tractor but most of what I want is 3 point. If it is possible, how would I do the hydraulics for the hitch?

As Stan said, It's possible. But, the Cub may only be able to lift the lighter of available implements.

Don’t plan on using any pro powered implements with it.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Worksaver makes/made a 3 point kit but it's pricey. I don't know if they still do or not. As mentioned above, several designs have been fabbed by forum members.

A quick hitch kit is on eBay for 160-200. As stated many have built.their own which is what I would do. Also as barnyard said, pto implements won't work.

I did some research and I think a rockshaft lift for the hydraulic would be ideal for me. Where would be a good place to get one?

For the most part, you have to make your own hitch to fit your needs. I made mine and was glad I did. I made mine to sae specs. so I can use small equipment. NO pto stuff will work on them, but since I use mine in the gardens, none is needed. cultivator, plow, rake, harrow, water knife, rear blade, etc. works great. thanks; sonny

Place a "wanted" ad in the Vine subforum. There may be someone close to you that has an extra they don't need.
