HITCHING TO AN IMPLEMENT
The operator backs the trailer up to the implement or attachment, uses the hydraulic controls to move the 3-point carriage to it's rearmost position, then uses the hydraulic controls and the adjustable top link to attach the 3-point hitch system to the implement. The lower lift arms of the trailer's 3-point hitch system feature lateral adjustments, to match the width of the implement's hitch, making hookup a simple process.
LIFTING THE IMPLEMENT
After attaching to the implement's 3-point hitch system, and deploying the outrigger jacks, the operator lifts the implement to the highest position with the Retriever PUP's hydraulic lift system.
MOVING THE 3-POINT CARRIAGE FORWARD
After the implement is raised to the highest position, the operator moves the 3-point hitch carriage and implement forward on the trailer, using the Retriever PUP's hydraulic controls, shifting the load closer to the center of the trailer for transport. After moving the carriage to the forward-most position, the operator lowers the implement down engaging the mechanical transport lock, and then the implement is ready to be secured to the trailer with chains or straps for transport.
MOTOR AND HYDRAULIC CONTROLS
The Retriever PUP's self-contained hydraulic system is powered by an easy-starting 5.5 hp Honda GX 200 gasoline four-stroke engine and hydraulic pump. Operating the Retriever PUP is an easy one-man operation with the hydraulic controls mounted on the left side of the trailer. Controls include: raise and lower 3-point arms, forward and rearward travel of 3-point carriage, and remote hydraulic valve functions.
3-POINT HITCH SYSTEM
The Retriever PUP's CAT I and II 3-Point hitch system features laterally adjustable lower link arms and an extendable top link to make hitching to a wide variety of implements possible. The lower link arms feature a sliding latch that pins in place to capture the lower link pins of the implement. A set of remote hydraulic outlets is mounted on the 3-Point lift system to provide remote hydraulic power when needed.
