Product Description

Hitches

Great Plains offers several different hitch options for added versatility. These include the Center Pivot Hitch, Precision Fertilizer Hitch, Sub-Soiler Hitch, and Pull Hitch.

The Center Pivot Hitch (CPH) is designed to turn basic 3-point drills into fully-featured no-till drills, complete with hydraulic depth-adjustable coulters. The drill can either be rigid or float, fore and aft, independently of the hitch.

Take no-till seeding to the next level with a Precision Hitch (PH) or Precision Fertilizer Hitch (PFH)! The PFH uses 400 gallons of fertilizer and a highly accurate fertilizer pump (fertilizer system optional). Coulter height is independent of seeding depth.

Originally designed for the rigors of sub-soiling, the Great Plains Sub-Soiler Hitch is quite capable as a tough 3-point pull package. The SSH can turn a 3-point drill or other 3-point implement into a pull-type machine, no longer requiring the normal hassle of hooking and unhooking to the tractor’s 3-point hitch. The rugged design allows it to handle equipment up to 15,000 lbs. An optional 300-gallon fertilizer tank is available.

The Great Plains Pull Hitch offers an economical way to turn a 3-point drill into a pull-type machine, with a single hydraulic cylinder to lift the machine. These are available in either single or double gauge wheel models.

Product Features

Weight Transfer/Built-in Weight Bracket

Up to 3,250 lbs. can be transferred hydraulically from the tractor to the coulter bar to ensure consistent, proper coulter depth. If more weight is needed, add up to 2,000 lbs. to the built-in mainframe weight bracket.

Rockshaft Design

The rockshaft lift gives this unit plenty of lift capacity to pick up a full planting unit plus 400 gallons of on-board fertilizer. The dual 12.5L tires are designed to straddle 30" rows. Automatic pivot locks engage when fully raised to the transport position.

Center Pivot Design

This design features a pivot halfway between the rigid 450 lb. preloaded coulter and double disc opener. It works like an articulated 4-wheel drive tractor—the rear opener track follows the front coulter track perfectly! No drifting on side hills, no cutting corners on curves. Just perfect tracking and seed placement, all the time.
