I'm setting up a customer's tri-axle tractor for his farm and the dealerships he owns. He wants one of these, too, and I'm going to have to have it brought up from the factory. Slick unit, that's for sure!

What is that thing worth? I was thinking about a pintle plate on a truck but this can be used on most any truck I would suspect?

That was exactly my first thought when I saw it, how much !. That sure looks like quite the deal though if its able to have the required strength for heavy towing and I presume it must.

IMO, any farm or commercial use truck should have some kind of a solid hitch or short skirt with one integrated into it. There's a reason why every oilfield winch tractor has one...its what you tie onto to pull it out when you are stuck or in a bind and really need to give a mean pull. Ever watch Dippy Davis and his tow trucks screwing around on the Coq and how many times they tried to tie onto the dolly legs or fifth wheel plate to pull the ass end of the truck onto the road?

Even my little 9100 Cornbinder tractor has a skirt on it, and that one even has a receiver type hitch as part of it too. Every body job, grain to gravel, from the one ton on up has a hitch.

Getting a hitch mounted will cost you a lot less than 7500, you'll get several for that many dollars, and the hitch is always there. Have one built right that bolts on, if you wanna swap trucks, swap the hitch.

Contracts are made to be broken, a handshake is the law of God.

We really should have a hitch for one of our highway tractors, instead we have hired a neighbor or a hauling contractor that has a truck rigged up the odd time we need something pulled. But to make one under built or crappily welded or not attached properly as I've seen a few photos online of crap hitches, that's worse then not having a hitch at all. Scary some of the garbage people have slapped together in their back yards and to think its pulling something down the road.

I hear you, loud and clear. The trouble is, the hitch requirements were getting a little out of hand. First it was an apron with a pintle, then include a square receiver, then something to accommodate a big draw pin to pull ag equipment, and on and on. An apron with a pintle or receiver can't pull a Cat IV implement, can it? Purpose-built is great, but this way my customer gets a multi-purpose unit that can pull/tow/recover virtually anything in his farm fleet or dealership, deliver it to and from customers, etc. Couple that with an extra-long fifth wheel slide and he can pull tandem and tri-axle trailers, whatever and whenever.

Not a Jamie Davis fan?

You should have been around the guy we used to have down here, watched him jack around 4 hours trying to winch a truck out of the ditch in the middle of the night, could tell he was paid by the hour...

It shocks me how many trucks rolling around have no place to hook onto simply, I pulled quite a few off a dirt road by my house (because my GPS told me to go this way) and have had to get somewhat creative at times.


Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.
