A set of these rascals for the 3-pt on the HDT1000:

They aren't as 'automatic' as "Pat's Easy Change System", but Pat's doesn't make a Cat 0 version. 

 

Talked with the fella on the phone just to make sure that he still does them.  He said that he doesn't keep the Cat 0s in stock, but will make them to order.  I should have them in a week or so.

 

They are a bit pricey, but it sure will eliminate a lot of tugging, kicking, and cussing while trying to change 3-pt goodies :D :D :D

Ya, after the last post on these I checked around and decided to get Pat's easy system for my big Cat 2 tractor, I'm not gonna be able to manhandle and "cuss" stuff in place as much as before. I don't have any cat o stuff, but I agree for cat o these look like the ticket. Hoping you'll post your own video after you get'em. :thumbs:

I really like the design of Pat's, but with no Cat 0 option, I had to look elsewhere.

 

Oh course, I will post the 'obligatory' video  :D :D :D

You say pricey? I might have to go into business making them; they look pretty simple!

Well, you said "a bit pricey" and not just "pricey" so I think I will make out ok.

I thought about that style, but it limits you to implements that fit the lift points of the adapter.

 

With the ones like I'm getting and the "Pat's System", you have more flexibility in the implements that you can use.

Yes, I saw your photos and liked what you have done. Your unit is WAY BETTER than the production unit I have for Cat 1 implements. I often find myself fiddling, unbolting and re-positioning the top link hook on the one I have and think Pat's easy system will solve that. If it works the way it claims on my Cat 2 I'll be getting another set in the future for Cat 1.

I'm am in no way putting down what you have done I see that as excellent work :thumbs: But my Dr's tell me the "fiddling" with heavy farm implements has to stop :mad2: So, I'll try to slow down (some)...
