has anyone put a 3pt or sleeve hitch on a ford/lawn boy yt16h? if so could you please post pics for me to see. i want to someday get a small plow or maybe a rototiller for it and go to a plow day .
is this tractor sturdy enough for this kind of work?

I don't think it has a strong enough transaxle for a plow. It's a Peerless 1329. The rototiller for it is only 26" wide.

If it really is a 1300 Peerless then that rear end is not rated for ground engaging equipment and you would probably break something if you tried to plow with it. That is one of the differences between a GT and a lt or in this case YT tractor.

I have a yt16 and broke the axle just pushing snow. It was a heavy wet snow and had tire chains on.
I attempted to weld it back up and it pulled a little, so it wobbles. I just use it for a spray buggy

I have the same issue with my YT18h. It is a great lawn mower, but not enough for much else. Accessories are near impossible to find in my experience. Still, it pulls the garden cart at harvest time.

I have seen several CAT0 3 point plows on the KC craigslist. I'm not into gardening that much, so I have not bought one for my 195.
I have built a front dozer blade, rear angle blade, box blade, rear slip scoop and pallet forks (carry all). most of which were built from free rusty steel plates I saved from the scrapper. I didnt take the time ot prep and paint any thing, so they aint pretty but they get the job done
