The IH Fast-Hitch Story: Implement Show-Stoppers Tell 2-Point Hitch History

Fast-Hitch implements draw crowds at farm shows even though the system was short lived

A C-22 sidehill plow from Mark Peters' collection. 'This is kind of an oddball,' he says. 'When you pull the lever, that shifted the rear of the plow, pushing soil uphill or vice versa. It has what is called a 'scotch' bottom.' The plow is one of the few Fast-Hitch implements made in International's Hamilton, Ontario, plant, as indicated by the letters 'HT' stamped on top of the plow beam. The letter 'C' stamped on a Fast-Hitch prong indicates the implement was manufactured at International's Canton Works. If other codes were used, Mark is unaware of them.
