What about Pat's quick hitch? If your implements are not already quick hitch ready.

Mine has fit every single implement without any major issues, save for the box blade that was never designed to be used with a QG to begin with. On that, I had to mill the top hook of the QH down about 1/16" thinner to allow it to fit in the gap on the top pin of my box blade.

In my case, I first wanted to switch between a shredder and a box blade. I thought this would be easy. But the problem was the shredder needed a different length top-link than the box blade and the box blade top-link requires frequent adjustments anyway, as well as the lift arms in order to accomodate ***8220;crown***8221; or ***8220;slant***8221; on the road or whatever surface is being bladed. Gotta get on/off/on/off many times anyway so the QH didn***8217;t save any time and wasn***8217;t convenient due to the lift-arm width-settings were different between the two implements.

Then, I bought a Finish Mower. And a Post Hole Digger. The PHD Will NOT WORK AT ALL Because the QH won***8217;t hold the implement steady and the PHD flops around everywhere. The Finish Mower and shredder both require a loose/long top link to accommodate uneven ground or the support arms will bend on both mowers. The QH will not adapt to that.

For a QH to work as intended and in order to remain convenient you must have near-identical 3-point implements that do NOT need any flexible movement. Before wasting money on it, be certain your implements are QH compatible (and most likely will need to be the same mfr***8217;r.)
I believe it.

For a LP branded QH, you need LP QH ready implements for it to be 100% effective.

I have seen where you need a new top link with them since they bring the bottom links out so far.

If the top link adjustment is the sole reason for not using a QH, I found the Kubota BX top link to be garbage, and it went out with other scrap metal years ago.

For $25, I bought one that's much more user-friendly TL at a Farm store.

Any brand QH, if built to ASAE specs, will fit any same-category implement built to ASAE specs. No need to match brands.

My 3 point QH was too narrow for my 3 point Land Pride blade. After using 2 hydraulic jacks butted together to spread the lower QH hooks 3/8" further apart, I can use my QH on all my stuff

The problems arise when trying to attach older equipment or equipment that does not meet the specs. And not all new equipment adhere to the specs tightly enough to make them interchangeable. You need to "try on" each and every piece just to make sure it will fit.

I have used a Speeco Cat2 for over 20 years but I have recently retired it and now rely on Pat's.
