Yesterday, I received the EZ-Hitch CAT 0 quick attachment goodie that I ordered on the 5th.

 

Took awhile as he doesn't keep them in stock, and he makes them as a sideline.  I put them on the HDT1000, and they work as advertised...really slick!  They are very heavy duty, and well made.

 

Here's a couple of pics.  Ignore the pins holding them on the 3-pt.  He sent some that are better, but I just wanted to get them mounted to see how it worked.

 

Just in time too, as I just made a deal for a Brinly 12" 3-pt plow :D :D :D

Does the brinley 3pt plow hook up to the ball hitch?

Nope.  That black piece is an A-frame adapter that allows the use of a sleeve hitch implement on one side, and has a 'tow tab' on the other.  I have a trailer hitch ball in the tow tab, and use it for moving my utility trailer around.

 

The EZ-Hitch quick hitch attachment is the GREY parts. 

 

This is how the A-frame attached before the EZ-Hitch.

Pretty slick.

 

They sure are.  A bit on the pricey side at $150.00 shipped, but with the time and more importantly the effort that they save, I think that they will be worth it.

 

I just got another 3-pt to put on the HT20D, and may get a set for that one as well.

Yeah, it's a nice A-frame, but I'm a bit disappointed in the 'tube' that was used for mounting the sleeve hitch.

 

It's a bit undersized, and you can't used the standard pin for mounting.

 

I'm going to have that replaced with some thicker walled tube with the proper ID.

That looks good and should make for easier changes. I have found that the easier it is to change attachments the more likely I am to use the right one for the job.

That looks really handy.  Think I'll fabricate one or two for my tractors.
