Hey Brent it looks great to me. Just how much time do you figure that you have in making it?? Reason asking is it looks like alot of planning and time was put into making it. Also I can see by using the threaded rod that does away with the set collars having to be used. Really showing it without the paint gives us in my opinion a better idea of just how you made it as the welds and everything else can be seen better. Also I just love to see the heart of things in the ruff so to speak before the finish goes on. Great job, >>->happyjack<-<<

Hey AGCO, I am not sure but check out message #2569 reply #6 from Kent showing a picture of a one point sleeve hitchs for the newer tractors "but" not sure about yours. But my Homelite is the same tractor style as yours and it fits like a glove. This might be what you are looking for. These are hard to find around my area anymore but I did find some at one time and ended up buying one. If this is what you mean then at least you will have a picture of it. Or you can do a search just using the key word "sleeve" and thats how I found this picture for more information. Take care, >>->happyjack<-<<

I made one a couple of years ago,if you want the measurments let me know and I will dig it out and check the size.You will need to drill out a piece of round stock for the pin so it will not be so tight.Took about 1 hour to put together.let me know Bob

Kent informs me this is actually called the rear lift group to be used with a sleeve hitch on the attachment. Manufacture time was about 3 hours. Since I already had one to copy there wasn't too much thinking involved. The main reason I used all-thread instead of round stock is I decided to do this on a Sunday and I didn't know of anyplace to buy the round stock on a Sunday and the collars at all. I have since been given a couple of leads on the collars. If I make another I may try using the collars if I find them. Brent

Here are pics of my home made $17 sleeve hitch/lift next to a factory hitch for 7000/7100 or 700/900 series tractors. Bought all the stuff for it at L*w*'s. Took about 3 hrs to make. I've been told new ones are $200 from Sim. Can post in the Do-it-yourself section if anyone is interested. Pics don't show the nuts and washers I'm using instead of the collars. Also had to make a reducing bushing for the left side also not shown. http://images.prosperpoint.com/images/2084/105216-2.jpg
