Ernst Degenhart GmbH, business house and specialist for 3 point front hitches is run in the fifth generation. When in 1976 the company Ernst Degenhart offered the combination of a 3 point front hitch with a front power take off for the first time, the age of front hitch systems for standard tractors had begun. The front PTO was driven of the mower drive. Since on newer tractors this mower drive is non-existing, a different solution had to be found. Many today use the direct engine pulley to drive the PTO, others take the power of the rear PTO and conduct it to the front with several gear boxes and drive shafts.
