Fast Hitching

Alexander Equipment Company says its new self-aligning 3-pt. hitch makes attaching implements to a tractor quick and simple. The DeltaHook Rapid Hitch System is made of solid formed steel and is available in two sizes. The Cat. I hitch is designed for small tractors with up to 60 hp, and the Cat. II size handles 60- to 120-hp tractors.

To use the DeltaHook, the tractor operator lowers the control plate and backs into the implement with a receiver plate until the two plates meet. The operator uses a hydraulic lever to raise the control plate up and into the receiver plate, which lifts the implement. DeltaHook automatically aligns and locks into place.

The Cat. I control plate costs $345 and the receiver plate costs $340. The Cat. II control plate costs $485 and the receiver plate costs $475. Contact Alexander Equipment Co., Box 694, Greenville, SC 29601, 866/833-1160, www.deltahook.com.
