Category 0 3-point hitch

The 3-point hitch increases versatility of the tractor by providing a common means of mounting a variety of rear equipment.
Features include:
  • Hitch is raised and lowered with tractor hydraulic control lever.
  • Left and right screw-type draft arm height adjusters make it easy to level or tilt three-point hitch mounted equipment.
  • Hitch is equipped with depth stop that works independently of tractor's mower cut-height adjustment for added convenience and versatility.
  • Tractor is designed to readily accept the three-point hitch (rear hydraulics, hydraulic cylinder, and rockshaft bearings are standard equipment).
  • The depth stop must be locked up when transporting attachments.
NOTE: Front weights may be needed to stabilize steering when using rear-mounted implements.
