Saginaw 3 Point Hitch

Recommended Posts

Matt!! HI! Ya, the cylinders go over the axles! --- Hey,--I will get pix of it and post them here for you, ---Mine is still on the older 560 ----still need to take it off and put it on the other 560. ( another "to do" that is not done yet!)

The hitch has 2 main parts,--1 lower and one upper that all clamp to the axle where the picker,cultivator, etc mount to. Then the cylinders lay down next to your platform.

Well should be fun straightening then 😂. What did you do to bend them?

This loader SM doesn't get used that much so is a victim of battery theft quite often. 

I needed to move it about 5 feet to get at something it was blocking. 

Come up from behind with another loader and pushed, arms slide sideways and the rest is as they say "well that wasn't good"😄

My bottom arms are 34.5 inches pin center to pin center.  There are holes in bottom arm 15 and 21. " from center of front pin. Lift rod currently at 21.

Rock shaft is 2"od . Top arm 11.5 from rear od of rock shaft. Pin center 10 3/4? 

Upper lift arm has 1 " plate  with tab welded to it for cyls to pin to. It has removable pin so it arms can float and pined to a welded in pin near front of arm but jist behind rocks haft. Tried to show this in 1 or 2 of the pics. Hope this helps.

Here are pics of the Abbot Bros. hitch. They are built like a tank!

Pic 1 cylinder mounts,--one on each side. I used 4' bore jobbers on mine.

Pic 2 rear view,---I had to cut and widen it 8 inches to fit 560. They are wider than the SMD was.

Pic 3 is the under lead brace and bolts up on the front where the cornpicker cylinder goes,--also front of main drawbar mounts here

Pic 4 is the cross bar the used and on the front is a ball that the round rod slides in. I never got mine welded back on after I widened the hitch.

Anyway this is kinda an idea of how this one is made. It has all kinds of adjustments on it too.

Looks like Sonnys lower arms will telescope out which would be a nice feature if your going to use it a lot especially with something too heavy to wrestle around much to hook up. I use that a lot on my 826. Spring loaded latches make that nice.

They do come out,--and it does help hooking up the heavy stuff!

Flat iron if I'm looking at the right piece.

The one on top that the "bushings" are welded too? 

The ones on top are indeed angle iron wleded on. Added by me in an attempt to hang something off the back of the tractor. I've never tried it again and can't for the life of me remember what it even was I was mounting. So it obviously didn't work out. I should cut them off.

Finally remembered.  Sorry about that.  1/2 inch

It's all good. That's what I was guessing. Would you mind seeing what the distance is between the top of the mounting bracket to the top bolt? (Green in the picture) and also the length of that arm that comes off of it for the rockshaft? (Red) it would be nice to know the angle but I can kinda guess that I suppose. Thanks again1575177207_20221201_170716.thumb.jpg.e99a7107906bf982536c8cc4847200492.jpg.10e4842413fd096677a7b9059ff5276c.jpg

Bolt is 1 1/2 to hole center from top edge. Top edge of the other piece is 9" to center of rockshaft from face of the cannel. Total top length is 10 1/2 ish

Bottom  edge of same piece measures 12" over all

How far is that bottom lug for the cylinders away from that inside angle iron?
