3pt Hitch for Truck

Postby Copperhead [OP] » May 13 2017, 7:40am

Came across this little nugget. Looks interesting. Seems like a good solution for those that need occasional use of 3pt Cat 1 implements like a blade, box blade, landscape rake, even a plow, disk, etc for food plot preparation for deer. Kinda pricey, but pretty reasonable for what it can do, and certainly compared to buying a compact tractor. Especially if one only needs to get a job done only a few times a year. Would work on a 1500 on up. Even on a Jeep or SUV with a few limitations.

I am more of a tractor enthusiast and for the most part I just take my tractors to tractor pulls and some shows. But I do plant several food plots and a large garden that sustains year round veggies, frozen and canned. When I prep the ground, plowing and disking I cant see my truck doing that. At least not with any wetness in the ground. And in the spring the ground is usually wet around here.
But I can see the 3 point being very useful on a truck.
There is always enough time to do it over again, but never enough time to do it right the first time.

Cool idea, could use one for the occasional big snow we get in KY and can't get my old F**d tractor to start because it's 10 degrees out. Maybe even a stripped down version with manual height adjustment in lieu of the hydraulic would be more economical.

Well, did come across this one that is much cheaper, but doubt it would be quite as functional. Maybe as blade use only. Might require a drop receiver adapter also to get blade attack angles different.

Sure, nothing will quite compare to using a tractor for any of this kind of thing, but for that light, occasional user, it could be a real good option as opposed to buying a CUT and all the associated costs with that. Hard to justify a CUT purchase for something you might do only a few times a year. I have a New Holland CUT, but I have a lot of applications, especially loader work, that calls for that.

Hey thanks, that's the perfect setup there for clearing some snow once in awhile with the tractor blade. Cost ain't bad too. Guess you would need a decent winch for it too. My 5' blade is still pretty heavy.
