Two Hitch Systems Available:
AG CAT. 4 HITCH
Ashland Industries now offers an affordable alternative hitch for coupling a direct-mount scraper to your tractor. The Ag Cat. 4 Hitch allows the operator to use the tractor’s existing standard hammer strap drawbar to connect with a direct-mount scraper 14 cu.yds. or smaller.
The tractor must have the Category 4 HD high-capacity drawbar factory installed. When operating, the drawbar must be installed in the most forward position on the tractor. This is required for better weight distribution and ballasting of the tractor while transporting loaded scraper.
Do not exceed the tractors maximum vertical load limit on the drawbar.
The Ag Cat. 4 Hitch has a massive 4″ horizontal swivel pin to handle the rough service of most construction applications. The large 3″ custom clamp nut allows the operator to make periodic service adjustments to maintain retention of the front yoke. Lastly, the pivot joints feature numerous grease points to ensure wear parts can be proper lubricated.
