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 (151 L) 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 (6,804kg). An optional 300-gallon (1,136L) 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

Hydraulic Weight Transfer

To increase the coulter depth, simply shorten the tongue cylinder. The unique design of CPHs and PFHs transfers weight from the tractor to the coulters to aid in penetration.

ROCK SHAFT DESIGN

The rockshaft lift gives this unit plenty of lift capacity to pick up not only a full planting unit but also 400 gallons (1,514L) of on-board fertilizer. The dual 12.5L tires are designed to straddle 30" (76cm) rows. Automatic pivot locks engage when fully raised fully to the transport position.

Center Pivot Design

Great Plains is the only no-till system that plants properly on curves and contours. Our CPH (Center Pivot Hitch) and PFH (Precision Fertilizer Hitch) aligns the coulters with the openers for perfect tracking. As the illustration demonstrates, competitive brand pivoting coulters cannot maintain proper tracking.
