I decided to have Fit Rite Hydraulics modify my draft links with these hooks. Photo attached. I've done all my own welding since before I left home, but decided to give myself a treat and have Brian do it instead. They look great.

I have used a fixed quick hitch for quite a while, but it has some drawbacks. Now that Brian has the Cat 1 hooks (versus Cat 1/2) I made the change.

Nice work. Looks very nice.

Let us know how do you like them.

By the way, did you get enough balls for all the implements? Otherwise you will be constantly playing with your balls. :D

Hah. No I decided to give it a try with what Brian sent and see what I need.

Very nice Pat!!! I'm also anxious to hear your thoughts after use. Thanks for the thread and pics.

Never paid attention to the Euro system- how are the balls attached to your implements? The welding/grinding work almost looks too good for farm equipment! I've seen videos in the past of implements being exchanged using that system, and it looks very practical and efficient.

I'll put up some photos of the installed arms with implements when I get back to the property in a week or so.

They look good, enjoy.
As far as the implement balls I think I'm at about 6 or 8 pairs now and contemplating getting a few more.
