Should You Invest in a John Deere iMatch™ Quick Hitch?

One of the benefits of owning a Compact Utility Tractor is the number of availableimplements and attachments. While it’s handy being able to take on multiple tasks with just one machine, depending on the number of attachments you're using and how often they’re being changed out, the actual switch can become a dreaded chore rather than a benefit. That’s why John Deere has the option to include a quick attach system, the iMatch™ Quick Hitch, which can save you time and effort when handling multiple attachments, but does that mean you should purchase one for your tractor?

In this issue of the Toolkit Manual, we will run through the differences between the iMatch™ and a standard 3-point hitch to help you decide if the Quick Hitch is a necessary time-saver or something you can do without.

Differences Between the 3-Point and the iMatch™:

The standard 3-point hitch is set up with 2 draft arms on either side and a center link, that requires the operator to hook into the implement with pins at these points. While it’s a fairly simple setup, this does require you to back up in line with the points of contact and do the attachment or detachment process by hand.

The iMatch™ differs, by replacing the 3-point hitch and remaining on the tractor at all times. Instead of connecting/removing pins between every implement, a snap ring, and bushing is always connected to the implement side, meaning that the operator can remain in the driver's seat, back up to an implement, raise it into place and lock it in place with a flip of two levers.

What Implements is the iMatch™ Compatible With?

Most Category 1 John Deere and Frontier implements are compatible, aside from a backhoe, posthole digger, and some fertilizer spreaders. The most common implements we see our customers purchase are a tiller, rotary cutter, box blade, rear blade, and landplane. One thing to note is that off-brand implements are not compatible, so be sure to keep that in mind when considering the purchase of an iMatch™.

Why Does This Matter?

While these differences may seem inconsequential, the time-saving elements of the Quick Hitch do make a difference when switching between multiple implements on a consistent basis. The iMatch™ may be a worthwhile investment if you find yourself dreading the change between implements, see yourself losing a lot of time actually working on your property or if you’re looking for a fluid attachment system that keeps you in the operator seat. If you only utilize one or two attachments or switch them out every once in a while, the standard 3-point hitch will fit your needs nicely and you most likely don’t need a quick attach system at this time.

I waited until everyone left and quietly retreated home. When Jane woke up. She noticed three things: she was cold, her back hurt, and she also felt like something died in her mouth.

Trying to calm the incomprehensible feeling inside. After that first acquaintance, Mikhail began to often come to the institute, he gave her flowers and all sorts of small gifts, took her to the cinema and restaurants several times, but never once tried to harass the girl. They talked a lot, then he disappeared somewhere for a week, which is why Nina was not herself all those days.

Mikhail for her became like a drug, without which she did not want to live, every night he came to her in.

It seemed to me that the bottle had already rested against me and did not go further, but it turned from side to side. An uneven surface of the bottom of the massaged my wet house. I already instinctively started to pick up. Why did I get a few more hot compo- nents on my side. Sleep breathing began to increase.
