HALF HITCHES (draw-pin type hitch)

This type of hitch is usually only used on machines up to 6 tons but we have made them all the way up for 30 ton machines! They are the cheapest form of mechanical hitch of which we are aware.

The features of the NIMROD half hitch:

For maximum durability a half hitch needs to have as little movement as possible between itself and the bucket pins. Any movement will cause more wear.

  • Therefore we fully machine the length of the half bush so that the  full pin length is supported (some manufacturers only use a profile cut surface so there is a lot less support area on the pin which means fast wear)
  • The bush in the back is machine reamed to the correct tolerance and the hitch is welded up in a jig to make sure the alignment is correct
  • To help take the draw pin in and out the hitch has a grease nipple. The nipple has a protector around it to guard it

To use the half hitch your implements must all have exactly the same pin centres
