Tractor Fittings

System 1

3 point linkage kits that allow quick and easy attachments to the tractor using the standard 3 point mounting and machine support frame. There are 3 types of 3 point mounting kits;

Quick-Hitch

Quick Hitch

This type of mounting frame is fitted to the tractor three point linkage before attachment to the machine. The linkage incorporates a coupling bar that allows quick mounting and dismounting of the machine to the tractor and held in position with pin lockable claws. The top link is then fitted, the machine raised to it’s working height and the telescopic support rods locked via pins to hold the machine at the correct height. The machine is levelled using the top link and the lift arms lowered so that the machine is carried on the frame and not supported but the tractors hydrulic lift arms. The check chains are tightened to prevent sideways movement.


3-Point-Linkage

Three Point Linkage

This type of mounting frame is fitted to the machine before fitting to the tractor. The tractors 3 point linkage is then attached to the machine and mounting frame. The machine is then lifted to its working height and the telescopic support rods locked via pins to hold the machine at the correct height. The machine is levelled using the top link and the lift arms lowered so that the machine is carried on the frame and not supported by the tractors hydraulic lift arms. The check chains are tightened to prevent sideways movement.

 


A-Frame

A Frame

This type of mounting frame is fixed and is fitted to the tractors top link clevis, the top link is then fitted between the frame and the machine, the lift arms fitted to the lower pins of the machine and the machine lifted to working height. With the machine at the correct height the frame can be bolted to the machine using one of the series of attachment holes. The machine is levelled using the top link and the lift arms lowered so that the machine is carried on the frame and not supported by the tractors hydraulic lift arms. The check chains are tightened to prevent sideways movement.


 

System 2

Axle brackets that allow rigid mounting of the machine to the tractor with no sway or movement between tractor and machine. The axle brackets are attached to the underside of the tractor rear axle.

Axle-BracketAxle Bracket

Axle brackets are incorporated where necessary, with stabiliser and cab suspension mounting positions. The mounting forks of the machine then attach to the axle brackets and locked on using removable chocks that clamp around the axle bracket mounting pin. The machine is held in position at its working height by means of a mounting yoke that is fitted to the tractors drop arms and the centre lower part of the machines mainframe. The tractors drop arms are lowered to their lowest position and the machine is levelled by the screw adjustment of the tractors drop arms.


 

Sub-Frame

Sub Frame

On Hawk and Falcon machines, the sub-frame and axle brackets may be specified as an alternative to the 3 point mounting system.
