How does a tractor 3-point hitch work?
Three- point hitches are composed of three movable arms. The two lower arms—the hitch lifting arms—are controlled by the hydraulic system, and provide lifting, lowering, and even tilting to the arms. Each hitch has attachment holes for attaching implements, and the implement has posts that fit through the holes.
