garden or compact tractor is more
valuable if a 3 point hitch can be installed on it or if it comes
with one installed. The first 3 point hitch made by John Deere for
their garden tractors was in 1968 to be used on the John Deere 140
garden tractor then followed by the John Deere 400 that came out in
1975. Category 0 (zero) was the size classification that came on the
garden tractor. The next size up for the compact utility tractors is
category 1 (one). Three point hitches have exceptional lifting
Three point hitches are made to the same standard between the
different makes and models of tractors. If the 3 point hitch
equipment you buy is category 1 it will fit onto any make or model
of tractor that has a category 1 hitch. 3 point hitches can be used

box blades that are very useful for moving dirt and gravel. A
moboard plow, sprayer, sickle mower, rough cut mower, finishing
mowers and many other attachments can be used with the three point
