Attaching devices to tractors used to be a laborious and time-consuming task. Obviously, doing this manually was not the most efficient method, and because time is money, many advancements to tractor attachments and linkage have been made over the years. Many tractors now include 3 point attachments, which is a considerably safer way to connect a tractor to an implement. These are divided into groups that specify which hitches can be safely utilized with various tractors.
What are the 3-point hitch categories?
3 point attachments for tractors categories indicate the size of implements that can be utilized with a certain tractor. Compact tractors, lawn tractors, and sub-compact tractors often have smaller classifications like 0 and 1. As the category number increases, the implements become heavier and larger, necessitating a larger tractor with stronger lift arms.
There are various types of 3-point hitches, which are mostly distinguished by their category. The tractor compatibility and hitch size are specified in each category. The classifications are normally as follows:
- Category 0: suits tractors up to 20 hp (15kW)
- Category 1: suits tractors between 20 to 45 hp (15 to 34 kW)
- Category 2: suits tractors between 40 to 100 hp (30 to 75 kW)
- Category 3: suits tractors between 80 to 225 hp (60 to 168 kW)
- Category 4: suits tractors 180+ hp (130 kW)
