I am looking at a 445 that has a hitch and a rear PTO.

I assumed it was a CAT 1 hitch and the PTO was a 540 RPM.

I looked around a little and only see info on CAT 0 hitches..

Is CAT 1 an option or would it be CAT 0 with the PTO operating at 1000\2000?

Thank you

Should be a 540 pto and cat 0 hitch, although Ruegg makes a cat 0/cat1 combination hitch for it...if you are lucky it is one of those!

Thanks for the quick response.

So do you buy a CAT 1 attachment and then change the pins on the attachmnet so you can hook it up?

If I was going to use a tiller on it and the Tractor PTO is operating at 540RPM, I would have to have a CAT 1 attachment as the CAT 0s spin at a faster rate?

You have to look around. Not all cat 0 tillers are 2000 rpm. Deere has one to be used for the 4X5 series with cat 0

What You want to Look for if It's got a Cat 0 on it is Cat0/1 Implements Work saver is a Good Company for those But any rear attachment for the 445 should Not exceed 450LBs Up to 24inch behind the Lift Links and For converting Cat 1 to cat 0 the Pins Need to Face IN Not Out Like the Cat 1. Standard Cat 0 when New were always More expensive That Cat 1 Implements. As Stated the 425,445 & 455 all Took 540RPM rear PTO's They Never Made a 2000RPM rear PTO for those Models. Deere made the model 450 Tiller for the 425 thru 455 which was Cat 0 and it was Run by 540RPM PTO. If the tractor didn't Have a rear PTO I would Have suggested Getting a 42inch Hydraulic driven Tiller for the 445 Which was Run off the Mid 2000RPM PTO Some Late Model 450 Tiller’s will also Be set Up for the Limited Cat 1 3point Hitches( weather the tiller Frame was Changed at all I don’t Know) Because when the X400/X500 Came Out In 2002 that was the tiller Offered For them in 2004 The Model 647 Replaced the model 450 as the tiller for The X400/X500 that eventually Became the X700 series tractor:thThumbsU
