NEW hydraulically operated push-back hitches for John Deere’s latest 5R Series tractors, the T5 Utility tractor from New Holland and the Farmall C HD model range from Case IH, were launched by Lynx Engineering at the recent LAMMA show.

Lynx sells Irish company, Dromone Engineering's hitches to the rest of the UK and said the push-back hitch offers superior visibility of the hook and trailer ring from the cab, making changing implements quicker and easier.

The hitch includes a heavy-duty tow hook, drawbar and keeper plate capable of handling big loads and weight, an easy-to-access drawbar storage pocket and a push-back feature that allows the hitch to dig into the ground. A cab integrated handle and cable kit is available.
