The answer is it depends. On a DC Case the PTO is very high compared to the usually lower mounted driven machinery (a Bush hog cutter)and the angle of the driven shaft may be excessive. A 3 point scraper would probably work well if it is set up for Category one hitches. On the smaller tractors the PTO shaft is lower and there are less problems with PTO shaft angle. The Eagle Hitch can be easier to hook up in some cases and more difficult in others. I will say that it is highly superior for cultivating as it does not drift from side to side.

It works with just about everything. If you have an implement that doesn't quite work, depending on your tractor you can loosen the bolts that attach the eagle arm to the rear axle to allow the hitch arm to swivel a bit. I have two VA's, dad has a 311, and my grandfather had a 611b and the only thing I had to fiddle with was an old Ford plow on my VA.

The specific implement i am thinking of is a MasseyFerguson MF42 sickle mower with a 1951 VAC.

From the 2 responses i rcvd it looks like it should work.

Thanks for the quick responses.

For Pto driven implements, you may need to cut off the pto shaft. The distance from the end of the pto shaft to the end of the eagle hitch arms will be shorter than three point tractors. It should still work though.

We hooked a JD #8 sickle bar mower to our SC row crop. The angle of the drive shaft was a bit excessive and the u joints wouldn't go but about 2 haying seasons but I think the PTO shaft on the VAC comes out of the differential case much lower than the SC/DC. You shouldn't have any touble and like Don Rudolf says, the rigid eagle hitch arms don't let 3 pt implements flop around like conventional Ferguson/Ford type 3 pt hitch. They had to add stiffeners to make their's work like the eagle hitch.
