|The Farmboy is a versatile 3-point hitch system that works on Kubota RTVs using only the original dump bed hydraulics. It can easily be attached to either the front or the back of your RTV to maximize its utility. It can be used to attach your planter, cultivator, watering system, seeder, lawn dethatcher, arena conditioner, snow plow or one of many 3-point hitch attachments that previously could only be used by a compact tractor.The Farmboy comes fully assembled and can be easily taken on and off your RTV in less than 15 minutes with no changes necessary to the already existing equipment. The Farmboy is fastened to the RTV with a standard 1 ¼ – 2 inch receiver, as well as two additional main clamp devices hook up to the cross member on the frame. These additional clamp devices bear 90% of the load, relieving the hitch of a majority of the strain, while also compensating for side-load pulling. The Farmboy’s hydraulic cylinder hooks directly to the hydraulic ports on the rear of the RTV.
View the videos to the right for helpful demonstrations and to see just how easy it is to install and to use. Although it is easy to put on and take off, it is designed to be able to be left on with full function of the utility bed and driving. The Farmboy is capable of supporting Category 0-1 attachments and has a lifting capacity of 800 lbs. In addition, the Farmboy has hydraulic down pressure, which is a unique feature not found on typical 3-point hitch systems. For example, you could no-till plant with a standard planter or use the Farmboy for dethatching lawns with the available down pressure.
