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.
SPECIAL DRAWBAR HITCH
By running your tractors drawbar pin horizontally through the hitch’s two ears, your scraper can be mounted closer to the tractors rear axle. This setup helps significantly to keep the front MFWD tractor weighed down. The drawbars vertical pin is mounted 22″ behind the horizontal drawbar pin to provide you with a superior turning radius.
Over-engineered with a higher strength material and additional support gussets. the heavy steel bulkhead and rigid hose stand keep hydraulic lines safe and secure.
