What does this fit? Age?

It is a big guy, 50# or so. 1" bolt holes, 6 1/2" center to center. Thanks Al Hansel 507-528-2780

Hi Al,

Looks like it’s off an M4 High Speed Tractor.

Confirmed: it's a part of a M4 high speed tractor.

Kindest Regards

Thanks. That was my guess too but I do not have one around to measure. Al

Here's a picture of a M4 high speed tractor pintle hitch

That hook you have looks like an M series. Even the housing looks different than the M4's

It sure does not look like this one, no spring and housing on mine. Just solid beef.
