A few pics of my 3 point on my 446, still need to make hydraulic lines, but don't know if I will be putting a selector valve on yet or not.

Very nice build !! :thumbs:

 

Not to over think this. I do have to ask if you feel that the 1/4" uprights are heavy enough for the kind of loads the pivot point will see?

I had the same thought. It looks well built but not as heavy as a JD or MF 3 point hitch. I've always thought they were overbuilt but I wonder how strong it needs to be.

Good fab work . I've seen these plans and it calls for 1/4 plate. If it's not adequate for his needs by the looks of his work he'd have no trouble beefing it up .

I cannot take credit for the fab work guys, but the person that built this 3 point is freaking awesome at what he does and I only hope I'm half as good. But for the plans I got them from the colt,case, Ingersoll forum. I figure build it from the plans than tweek if need be.

Considering the tensile strengh of mild steel is 24,000 psi there should be no problem what so ever with this hitch design. In the end it's only as strong as the 4 bolts that connect it to the tractor and as I recall that is 2 bolts in shear and the other two under a tensile load.

Well got lines ran and tested the lift cylinder. Works pretty good, but I have to reroute the the top line rubs on the top lift bracket to much. I have a total of 17in of travel at the lower lift arms

Tested out the Case fab 3 point at the the ball hollow GT talk 2 nd annual plow day, and couldnt be happier. Will have to fab up some chains or sway bar, but other than that she work very well.
