Pat's Quick Hitch would be a great product for me if I only had to hook up to my bush hog. I makes the task of hooking up a quick, one person operation. However, when I need to hook up to another implement that is wider or narrower than the bush hog, the angle is not the same and the set screws need to be adjusted. It still is a good product and does what it is advertised to do.

Quick change hitch
This product is very good once you get it attached to the three point arms very hard to get them put on, have to do some paint removal and grinding to make them work, but once you have all that done and put on works great.

Solid reliable product
I have these installed on my IH 384 tractor for over two years and they are very solid and work very well. I know that these have been well worth the money spent. They have saved a lot of time and they work as intended and expected. I recommend them and am well pleased with them.

All three point hitches need these installed. They make implement changes a snap

I tried 2 other types of quick connects and all required some form of modification in order to fit my implements. I have a 2012 New Holland WorkMaster 65 with Cat 2 Lift. Most of the implements I have are Cat 1 except for a backhoe which is a Cat 2 unit. All of these implements with proper bushings fit the quick connect and make it SO EASY to hook up. I still have to get off to connect the top link to the box blade or hook up the top link and PTO for the mower but I would have to get off anyway for the mower deck...so not much of a complaint here. Will let you know how this works with the NorTrac Category 1 3-Pt hitch to 2" Receiver adapter once it arrives.

Simple to use
I replaced a Cat II Quick Hitch with these Quick Change attachments. They are easy to install and use and make it much easier to connect the implement PTO shaft.

Best purchase I have made for my tractor!
After trying several other 3 point type hitches I stumbled across these, Three point hitches have a set spread and to use them on more than one implement you have to modify the implement to work with the hitch as there is no standard spacing among manufacturers. This is next to impossible so you find yourself removing your 3 point type hitch to hook up to something it doesn't fit. These hitches eliminate that problem. They are simply fantastic!! I find myself getting lots more work done as the dread of hooking up and changing equipment is gone and the speed and versatility are second to none! I don't know why tractor manufactures don't make these standard on all tractors. If you have a tractor you need these hitches period.

Well Built and Works, But Know This...
I HATE fiddling with three-point hook-ups. These adapters make it easy. They are exceptionally well made, quite heavy. You'll feel good about buying them as soon as you open the box. Very slick to install. I cut a piece of small wood stock with a nail in each end to hold the lift arms at the right distance apart, so I can back up and raise the arms to hook up.
BUT hers's what you need to know and check for. If you think about it, these extend you lift arm length bu about five inches. I found that the PTO drive line on a tiller had been cut real close to the lower end of what was needed for the original rigging. Turned out they were within an inch of being short when the tiller was level, and the drive line fell apart the first time I raised it. I had to find and install one longer piece of drive line. Now, my mower deck drive line was long enough. But check this. It's real exciting when the driven end is flopping around behind you.
But I love these adapters, and I like the freedom to set and manipulate the top link, which is kind of limited in other quick hitch systems. Great product that all tractor maker should be putting on in the factory.
