The Agri-speed hitch is the invention of Barry and Ron Bergman. It was born out of necessity. Barry farmed and relied on his father to haul the loads of corn and soybeans. As time passed the job of hooking and unhooking the wagons went from a time consuming chore to a very difficult task. Barry then purchased the best hitch on the market at the time. Don, Barry's father, found the hitch very difficult to operate and took it off. That is when Barry started trying to figure out something better!

Barry and his brother Ron then came up with what is now known as the Agri-speed hitch. It is a very simple design that uses two parts. The first part slides over the end of the wagon pole and attaches with a hitch pin. The other part bolts to the draw bar of the tractor with two bolts. The hitch uses the holes already in the tractors draw bar. To hook up to the wagon the operator backs up to the wagon aligning the large "V" on the tractor hitch to the end on the wagon. As the tractor continues to back up, the hitch raises the pole and hooks the wagon. The wagon is now pulled with a pintle hook that is 1 3/4" thick. This is very important because the wagon is pulled with a part of the hitch that does not move, the moving parts only hold up the pole of the wagon! This is a very safe way to hook to the wagon and also gives the hitch incredible strength. After the first hitches were made, they found that they worked so well it was decided to patent the idea and produce them.

That was 1990 and today you can find thousands of hitches in use not only in the United States but Canada and Japan. The hitches are still made on the farm where Barry lives. This is so Barry and his son Mike can keep a close watch on each step of the manufacturing process. Barry and Mike also farm so they understand both sides. They know how important it is to have equipment you can count on especially at harvest! These Hitches are in many ways overbuilt and capable of pulling much more than the D.O.T. will allow. Barry and Mike are so confident in their hitch that if you are not happy for any reason you can return it during the first year for a full refund.
