Hitch Mounting Frames
Hitch Mounting Frames are made to exactly fit each series of
tractors for strength and integrity. No "will-fit" parts.
Mounting brackets are positioned under the front axle
(top photo) when necessary to avoid contoured mounting bracket
plates. If preferred, mounting frames can be customized
for over-axle mounting,
depending on wheel track setting and available mounting
Straight tractor frames
Mounting brackets simply bolt to tractor frame rails
(middle photo) and
usually extend to the back of the engine. Whenever
possible, mounting brackets install over-top the front
axle to maintain crop clearance under the tractor. Tire turning
clearances are also maintained.
Bare-engine tractor frames
For smaller tractors with no
frame rails (bottom photo), brackets extend to the clutch housing.
Recently, more larger tractors have appeared with no
frame rails and components removed from the engine block
to increase turning clearance. Like contoured tractor
frames, mounting brackets are positioned under the front
of the axle.
