Looking for a trailer hitch for my 1880. Front has option if I remove my forks. But want one for the 3 point. Looking at these and wanting opinions. Mostly boats or trailers will be moved. The $45 doesn't look to bad for the cost but you get what you pay for. If you have a suggestion on another one, willing to listen. Thanks

Just checked my 3 point quick attach. Need 27 1/2 max for the frame. Guess the ones I posted won't work. Found this one. Looks like it will work.

curious as to why those 1st 2 won't work as they're both CAT1, same as your tractor.
2ns one even says BX compatible...

Not wide enough. Shows 27.63 end of pins. My quick attach is 27 1/2 before pins. That last one is the closest so far but am still looking.

I built one for my tractor probably 10 or more years ago. Never used it. It was far easier to just add a receiver hitch to my box blade:

If you want mine, come get it! I65 near the AL/TN border.

Good day.

I am not sure I am following the thread / purpose correctly, but I wonder have you tried longer pins? 🤷‍♂️

Buy an old trailer hitch from a car or truck, cut it up, and make your own. This is what a friend did for me, and I bought a pickup truck hitch for $5 at a swap meet. Unfortunately, it isn't wide enough for my quick hitch, it will soon be remedied with some added steel to each side to move the pins outboard.

The other solution is to buy or make a proper 'quick hitch'. One that IS CAT1, tractor side AND CAT1 implement side.
