    Are quick hitches worth the investment? Dad picked up quick hitch for our 7000 Ford but as I look into them you need to put bushings on all the implements. So you need bushings to go from cat 0 to cat 2 and so on. Has anyone played with this idea and is it worth the effort?

    Even without the quick hitch you would need bushings to go from cat 0 to cat 1 and so on. If you have a big tractor you will not want to pull cat 0 equipment with it, just too light and will be torn up pretty quick, especially pto driven equipment. The small low HP gear boxes can not handle the higher HP of a big tractor, trust me on that one!!

    Have looked at them but really did not see any advantage, at least to myself. Best thing to do is buy a tractor for each piece of equipment, really cuts down on the hook up time :lol:

    Trust me dad is some what over kill when it comes to certain things. He bought a commercial grade 72" tiller for his tractor to till his 30 x 20 garden. I am looking for a 35 hp tractor just to keep dad from destroying to much equipment with the 94 hp tractor. Dad has a phd in chemical engineering and the thing about an engineer is you can tell one but you can't tell them much :lol:
