Pats 3Point Quick Hitch
This product is well made, however, in use I found that it is simply not worth much. Hooking up an implement is not any quicker or easier than the usual system. Even if you manage to hook up from the seat you still have to get off to connect the 3rd arm.

What used to take me 15 minutes to connect, I can now connect in about 2 minutes without effort.

Pat's Quick Hitch
I installed the hitch on a Yanmar 1401D. The paint on the three point hitch pin prevented the pin from being inserted easily on the right arm. The left worked fine. I had to adjust the angle of the hitch to accommodate my rotary mower. I also used some shorter bolts I had on hand in place of the bolts provided. The hitch works fine, it installs relatively easily. I did not have to grind anything like was stated in some other reviews. Do remove the paint from the pins, however. Once installed it makes a world of difference in the ease of attaching implements. I intend to purchase the Pat's Cat II hitch for my larger tractor and do away with the quick hitch currently installed.

Great idea, but...
1. Unless you have everything aligned on level ground, the system catches and does not hook up like the videos.
2. Also it added about 6 inches to the arms, which modified all of my driveshaft lengths, and added more lift to the front of a nicely balanced tractor.
3. You loose the use of the pivot ball at the end of the lift arm on your hitch.
Good idea, but not as helpful as I thought it would be.

It works, but...
The system is working alright, so far. It went on easily. It certainly makes hooking up an implement easier. My question is the durability and its continued ease of use. All the parts are steel. It is already rusting. Since this requires parts to slide easily to work, I think its days of ease of use are limited. A galvanized or strong alloy would be better for moving parts, even if it were slightly more. Less expensive does you no good if it stops working well after a year...

EASY TO USE. ONCE DIRECTIONS WERE UNDERSTOOD,(COULD BE IN LARGER PRINT AND REWRITTEN TO BE CLEARER). WENT ON WITHOUT DIFFICULTY. THE SET BOLTS ARE A BIT LONG. WORKS GREAT WITH ALL MY EQUIPMENT. MUCH BETTER THAN OTHER QUICK HITCH.

It is OK, but nt perfect!
These work OK, but could be better. The mounting details leave quite a bit to be desired.
It does solve the problem of attachment width variations.
