    I am purchasing a JD 2320 . Does anybody have any input on the John Deere Imatch hitch? It seems that this might make hitching attachments easier. The dealer wants $340 for the hitch. However, I noticed that Tractor Supply has a similar hitch for about $100 less. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks. Ed

    Ed: I don't know what an Imatch hitch is but, as a rule, JD is expensive.
    I own a Jd 2520 and have a 54 inch snow plow if you have any interest in it. I'm not sure if it fits the 2320.

    Just buy the TS quick hitch and paint it JD green- nobody will ever know the difference and you will save a bundle. Quick hitches work well if you have a purely cat 1 or cat 2 tractor but not so good if you have a cat 1/2. In any case, extendable lower arms will be nearly as helpful as a quick hitch.

    BTW, Harbor Freight has quick hitches too and can be really cheap on sale.

    i looked on harbor frieght site and they have them listed for 99 dollars without any discount coupons, if you look around you can find some coupons for 10 to 20 percent off. good luck. t roe
