For those who want to get more productivity out of the 7020 and 7030 Series Large-Frame Tractors, one factory-installed or two field-installed front hitches are available.
 
Option code 9065 provides a factory-installed front hitch with 11,450-lb (5200-kg) lift capacity. It may also be ordered for field installation. This hitch is suitable for use under normal conditions including primary tillage equipment or lifting heavy implements.
 
The hitch styling is in line with the tractor, and the frame design provides excellent maneuverability, even when used with large tractor tires. Furthermore, with the compact design there is only a 13-in. (330-mm) overhang from the front face when the arms are folded.
 
NOTE: 7020 and 7030 Series Large-Frame Tractors factory-installed hitch tractors do NOT ship with a front weight support (which accommodates the Quik-Tatch weights).
