The hydraulic version builds on the simplicity of its mechanical brother.

It utilizes a small single-acting cylinder to unlock the hitch, which has the advantage of the machine only needing one hydraulic line. It has another advantage in that you can still operate the hitch as a mechanical hitch if you have a hydraulic line failure.

The hydraulic version has the same size profile as the mechanical version, and weight-wise will beat the pants off other hydraulic hitches.
