Attaching implements a Pain? We may have a solution

I am part of a 2 person Engineering teem at Bellmont High School in Decature, Indiana. For our final project we need to identify a problem, justify it, and build it.

We identified the many problems in the process of hooking up implements and wagons to tractors, but we must now justify it. It would be a big help if anyone could fill out this short 3 question survey so we can start prototyping the product.

Re: Attaching implements a Pain? We may have a solution

To be very honest, there has been something like that on the market for some time and I really haven`t seen that it caught on.

I know cameras in pickups help hooking up bumper hitches, puts you right on the money.  Less wagons are pulled these days and the telescoping tongues help in hooking up.

 

Anytime though, that you can "build a better mouse trap" there`s always a market.  Good Luck   Smiley Happy

Re: Attaching implements a Pain? We may have a solution

thanks for the reply, but with the solution you suggested the hitch is extended too far out, making the amount of weight that can safely rest on the hitch significantly less. Also it is quite bulky.

once again, thank you for the response
