Double your tractor's work and reduce time in the field with the new Alpha 3-pt. front-mount hitch from Laforge.

Tailored for lighter tasks, the hitch will allow you to spray up front while you're cultivating at the rear. Or, to cut your mowing time in half, hook up a mower conditioner at the front and another one off-centered in back. The quick coupler system is visible from the cab, so equipment hookup is easier. With a tractor horsepower range of 50 to 150, it has a 5,500- to 7,700-lb. lift capacity. Although it's not for tillage equipment, it does take on harvesting, baling, spraying, mowing and snow plowing chores. It mounts to Case, Deere or New Holland tractors. List price: 2,895 dollars.
