The high cost of sleeve hitches

Recommended Posts

Holy Cow! Look at the "retail price" on this! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2340675918&category=22654 [img]http://ebay0.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/_EBAY_9c354aab89909f7d47a90753fa45ee7b/i-1.JPG[/img] Is this price right? I didn't know any of the newer tractors could carry a sleeve hitch. Steve

Thats about the right price range for ones to fit these newer dimestore tractors. Used ones for Simplicity Cub and Wheel Horse etc can bring as much and sometimes more.

It looks like that Scotts tractor saw a little sexy Broadmore and got turned on;)

I don't know, looks like if you took some of the older HEAVIER brinley attachments and put on it, there'd be a good chance that lift arm would fold up like an accordian....

Actually those arms are pretty tough. I wonder if that is for the Scott made by John Deere.

I'm 37 but most of the guys I run with are in their 50's 60's and 70's. They must be rubbing some of their years off on me....

What do parts 1-5 do? Looks like a lift rod but none on my 3 rear lifts have a hole in them. Must need my second cup of coffee.MPH

Marty That is a diagram of the newer style hitches for the 3400,7000,7100 series tractors The older styles like the landlords and B series did not use the lift rod to the rear lift they instead used a chain from the rear lift to the implement. Like what you have.

I'm still trying to figure out if the picture is showing the rear lift, or if it is showing something IN the rear lift. ?Maybe a long bent rod? I can't figure out how anything would attach to the rod and be light enough to keep the rod from collapsing like Sam suggested. Steve

It gets fuzzy when I blow it up that much but that appears to be the lift handle sticking up like that, bent to reach it and to go around the fender when pulled forward. I could be wrong though, like I said fuzzy

I glanced at one of those at home depo 'bout a year or 2 ago. They're made for the lawn tractors with nothing but a drawbar hitchpin hole best I could tell. Looked like a lot of junk to by to get the type of sleeve need for the old B series so I made my own and forgot about them..MPH
