The Eagle Hitch will take anything that 800 can dish out. Keep in mind that the quick hitch will move your implement back reducing your lift capacity. The Eagle Hitch will work on category 1 implements if the top link pin is raised on the implement.

What ever your hydraulic pump will lift, or the front end will hold without doing wheelies. In the late 70's we did all our planting and cultivating with ridge till planter, and cultivator on an EH 830. Saddle tanks on both sides and front of tractor. I am sure all loaded it grossed 15,000#. Only problem we had was getting pushed into the mud.

Your safety relief will vent before you do any damage to the eagle hitch.

The geometry on an Eagle Hitch is different than a standard 3 pt. The top link that goes on top of your rear end won't lift most 3 pt implements right, you need the one that goes down by the PTO shaft. The Cat 2 is a lot wider than an EH and the pins are larger.
