The front hitch/PTO ready option is ideal for any 7 Family Tractor that may be used for future applications requiring a front hitch or PTO. This option is also beneficial for increased resale value as it provides flexibility for future owners.
 
This option includes a front casting that accommodates, but does not include a front hitch and front PTO.
  • With a mechanical front-wheel drive (MFWD) axle, this option includes one set of hydraulic oil lines to connect the front hitch and mid-mount selective control valve (SCV). Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately. Additional hydraulic lines can be field installed allowing up to two front auxiliary couplers with a John Deere field-installed hitch.
  • On tractors with a Triple-Link Suspension (TLS™) front axle, the option includes three sets of hydraulic lines to connect the front hitch to the mid-mount SCV and up to two front auxiliary couplers. Mid-mount valves must be purchased separately.
In-cab controls for front PTO and front hitch have to be ordered through Parts when ordering the front PTO and front hitch field-installed options.
 
Front hitch ready tractors are not shipped with standard front weight support. A front weight support that bolts to the tractor can be ordered as a factory- or field-installed option. The weight support is compatible with suitcase weights (up to 24) and with the 900-kg or 1150-kg (1984-lb or 2535-lb) monster pick-up (monster) weights.
 
Front weight support is not compatible with front hitch and must be removed before a hitch can be installed.
 
The sixth rear electrohydraulic SCV is not compatible with front hitch options because of the mid-mount hydraulics for front hitch.
 
Field-installed hitch options for front hitch/PTO ready tractors:
  • Premium (ground-engaging) front hitch with push bar
  • Standard (carrier version) front hitch less push bar
Attachments, front-hitch conversion to ground-engaging 5194-kg (11,450-lb) lift capacity
 
Conversion from carrier version 5194-kg (11,450-lb) lift capacity to ground-engaging 5194-kg (11,450-lb) lift capacity for 7R Series Tractors
 
 
Heavy-duty front hitch

Heavy-duty front hitch

Those who want more productivity out of the 7R Series Tractors with a carrier-version front hitch have the ability to add tillage and other ground-engaging implements with the front-hitch conversion kit. The heavy-duty front hitch is recommended for the most demanding applications. It is designed for extreme stress from pushing hard on tillage implements, very wide implements, severe shock loads, or other heavy-duty applications. Premium hitches are also well suited for mounting three-point blades.
 
Field-installed kit RE326580 provides a set of heavy-duty lower hitch links, a push bar, and push bar mounting bracket. This hitch is suitable for use under normal conditions including primary tillage equipment or lifting heavy implements. The ground-engaging version is designed for full clearance and does not limit the turning radius at any tread width setting.
 
The tractor frame includes the mounting points for the push bar, making field conversion possible. Link conversion is possible by removing two pins for each link. Install the push bar with four cap screws in the front, four in the mid-chassis, and tighten  two large jam nuts where the push bar attaches to the push bar bracket. There are no ground clearance trade-offs with the addition of the push bar and heavy-duty links. Both versions of the front hitch are entirely compatible with the front power take-off (PTO).
 
The conversion kit to ground-engaging front hitch adds 117 kg (260 lb) of additional weight to the tractor.
