Automatic hitch system offers comfort, safety and efficiency

Hooking up a tractor-implement combo can be a bit of a chore, and downright exhausting if it’s a regular occurrence, but an innovative technology is taking the job from minutes to seconds, and leaving the operator in the tractor seat.

SIWI’s Combi-Hitch offers the quick connection of tractor and implement — hydraulic couplers, PTO driveline, and electrical harnessing includes — with the push of a button.

“The hitch is all about safety, to start with, because it’s a fully automatic hitch system where you can reverse back, lift up an implement, and you don’t need to leave the tractor at all,” says SIWI’s Steen Jensen, in this video clip filmed at Agri-Trade at Red Deer, Alta.

Jensen says besides offering operator safety, the hitch also provides comfort and efficiency.

“You will be able to have several different implements to switch between, and that’s what our customers, they do. They buy different trailer modules, then they can switch between within five seconds.”

The Combi-Hitch is currently distributed in Canada through Future Ag, at Red Deer, Alta.
