Re: Harbor Freight Quick Hitch

I like it!

Iím about two years into tractor ownership and have begun collecting various implements (box blade, back blade, boom pole)... one isnít quick hitch friendly (Servis Little Rhino) so Iíve been looking for options regarding quick hitches (I donít have a QH yet)...

Gonna add this to the list of options...

Re: Harbor Freight Quick Hitch

What is that coupling you're using? I have a HF quick hitch that is nothing but a boat anchor. I would like to get some use out of it.

Re: Harbor Freight Quick Hitch

Looks like that is a 1/2 inch galvanized double eye swivel coupling. Generally available in many hardware stores. I was just out picking a couple of them up for a project I'm working on. Generally used in rigging or other place you don't want rope or chin to get twisted.

Does the hook work better for you. Kinda wish the hook worked for my stuff but too much of a pain...

Re: Harbor Freight Quick Hitch

I have an older Servis LR blade (not QH compatible)... I found the best way for me is to invert the top hook and capture the pin with it... not really a quick hitch any longer but a "faster/easier hitch"... and it works...
