I think I am going to go the route of the quick hitch, but I was wondering what everyone uses/prefers specifically for the BX 1880? Is the QH05 going to be good? Or should I invest in the QH15?

Thoughts?

Either should work as long as you're ok with a non adjustable top hook. I'd suggest saving a bit of money and just get a speeco E-hitch. It's likely half the cost of the LandPride and does the same thing. However, it has an adjustable top hook.

I have one and it works just fine.


if it's not in stock, you can buy them elsewhere as well.

The difference is the adjustable top link. If you are buying all QH compatible implements, the adjustable top link doesn't help anything. The QH15 is rated higher, but the QH05 should be plenty strong and the side benefit is that you won't have to buy bushings.

I got the QH05 for my bx2380 but understood it was being replaced by a very similar model very soon.
No adjustable top hook. So far, not an issue for me as all my 3-pt stuff is Kubota and/or Land Pride.

I have QH15 and I need the adjustable top hook when I hook up my WoodMaxx chipper, otherwise it works well with no adjustments on all my QH compatible LP implements.

I bought one of these from Good Works Tractor. The adjustable top link hook comes in handy when hooking up to my wc-68 chipper.

I gave up on my QH and bought Pat's. I only have three 3-pt implements, but the QH width wouldn't work will them all. Plus the nuisance of having to put bushings on all the pins (because my QH has CAT-3 sized hooks even though it's a CAT-1 rated QH)... I don't swap implements that often and I think I like the Pat's system better.

Of course, the QH is made for those of us who have only QH compatible implements.

Pat’s is slower in comparison assuming you have QH implements. For example, I never have to put a pin in the top link with a QH.

Understood. Slower in theory, but in my limited experience/fleet, "quick-hitch compatible" hasn't turned out to be as universal as I would have expected. I suspect it's true if you're buying everything from one manufacturer, otherwise it's not all smooth.

That's why I recommended the Speeco E Hitch. No bushings needed as it IS truly CAT 1. At $300 including shipping, not sure how you could do better.

Oh, and my old 8N rear blade works on it as well. The only thing I need to do is raise the top hook one notch. 🤷‍♂️

Well, decided to go with the Pat’s system, my time is worth a few extra minutes if that’s what it takes, then I also can feel more comfortable not being stuck buying only one “implement” company!
Thanks for the advice everyone

The QH15 has an adjustable top hook......I have one.

However it is now discontinued, so the OP may need to look at a QH16.

I had a QH05 on the BX and currently have a QH10 and QH15. I only bought the QH15 from a dealer in Sheridan, WY because it was significantly cheaper than the QH10 at the local dealer. Personally I don't care for the adjustable top hook on the QH15.

I have the BX2380 (very similar) and the QH05. I have a few Land Pride attachments and I have also rented a few others (a tiller and rotary cutter) and the QH05 has worked great! No issues.
