"Flexpoint 3-Pt. Hitch Adapter - Category 1 and 2, Model# FPHS-1"
3 point hitch trailer adapter
I use this product for moving trailers with ball type hitches attaching this device to the 3 point hitch of my utility John Deere tractor. It is light enough to hitch up by one person, is highly weather resistant and is robust enough for even very heavy loads---basically to the limit of the lifting capacity of the 3 point hitch. One of the most useful things about a hitch like this is that it is possible to simply back up and position the ball under the trailer, even if the trailer is only a few inches off the ground, pick up the tongue with the 3 point and adjust the height (can be used to drain a boat for example). I have used this for many years and it has paid for itself many times over, undoubtedly saving multiple back injuries. Highly recommended item and probably a must-have for easy moving of trailers of all kinds.

Versatile 3point hitch setup
I bought this for an old tractor to tow various trailers around the woods while sawing wood. It is built super strong and also worked great for hitching a chain to for ripping out old tree stumps! Easily lower it down or up as needed to add some lifting capability for both dragging logs or towing trailers. I also used a 3 in 1 type hitch receiver to quickly change its function for trailering or towing oddball hitch types.

This 3-point hitch adapter is one of those tractor accessories that I wish I had purchased years ago when I got my tractor. The quality is great and I've been able to manipulate my 24 foot car hauler in my driveway using this adapter on my John Deere.

3 Point trailer hitch
I use this product to park my 8,000 lb. Boat. Got it in the Mail and was moving everything around the house with great ease. Top product.

3-point huitch adapter
I used this adapter as a starting point for a 3-point hitch sprayer. The sprayer assembly is built to slide into the receiver. It is working very well. the adapter is also being used to haul a large wood chipper around the farm with the tractor, making it easier to position. the 3-point hitch allows me to level the chipper easily in hilly or uneven ground. very useful tool!

You'll wish you'd bought one sooner!
I have three trailers, each requiring a different size hitch ball. With this simple but handy adapter I just slip in the various hitches I use on my tow vehicles and can move all my trailers around quite easily with my tractor. Note that there is some minimal assembly required, i.e., the pins for the lower links must be screwed in and secured to the frame using the lock washers and nuts supplied. This takes less than 5 minutes, however, and requires only a larger adjustable wrench and screwdriver. Note also that this unit will put the trailer tongue weight further rearward than a standard drawbar, so when moving heavier trailers make sure your tractor has adequate weight up front (e.g., front weights, cement blocks in the bucket, etc.) Otherwise, this is a very useful item that will make moving trailers around the yard very easy!

I had been looking for something like this for some time and my local farm store had no idea what I was talking about. I saw this in your catalog, bought it and am very pleased with the quality and durability of the product. Love it!

In tight quarters my tractor maneuvers my trailer easily into its parking spot.
My pickup can't do it this easily or quickly.

I have several trailers around the farm and this item is the handiest attachment for my tractor. I just back up to a trailer and pick up and move it wherever I want and drop it. I don't even have to get off the tractor.
