Small compact and light weight design makes the LS1 easy to lift one spear at a time and fit onto your CAT 1 Quick Hitch. Other 3 point hay equipment is bulky and heavy requiring a second person to help put the implement on the quick hitch.
Standard hay spears.
Easily replace spears if damaged. Replacement spears can be found at most farm supply stores locally. Each spear is secured into the LS1 boot by a standard 1/2in. x 3in. bolt.
Proper lift angle.
Adjusting the hex head bolt on top changes the angle of the spears in relation to the quick hitch.
How much can I lift?
We have used LS1 spears to lift large square bales of alfalfa that usually weigh from 1800-2000lbs.
Attaches to any three point quick hitch.
The LS1 is designed to fit any CAT 1 hitch on the market.
Don't have a loader? Add lifting to any tractor.
This is where the LS1 saves the day. For a fraction of the cost of a loader you can lift and move hay, pallets, or just about anything around the farm.
You already have a loader!
Even with a front end loader the LS1 gives extra hay bale capacity when moving hay out of the field. Get a bale with the loader and a bale with your LS1 spears all in the same trip. Once your done clearing the hay from the field you can easily remove the LS1 spears. When using a loader your lift capacity is reduced, because of the leverage needed to lift out in front of the tractor. With the LS1s you can utilize the lift capacity at the rear of the tractor increasing your lifting weight capacity that a loader may not be able to handle. The 3 point lift on the tractor is designed to lift the heaviest implements that will be used by the tractor.
