Round Top Quick Hitch Adapter

This quick hitch adapter uses a rounded top to hold the tapered pin which is also tapered at the mounting end.  The mounting end is drawn into the casting with a large nut.  I understand that this design is a bit stronger than the "Bolt Top" design.

This adapter would be used on any tractor that does not have an internal PTO clutch, such as all of the Gravely engine tractors (7.6, 6.6 and 5.0 HP).

I received a letter elaborating on Quick Hitches from Rev. Phil Smith.  It details some part numbers and history and makes for interesting reading.
