I ordered the first production 3pt hitch from On Point Welding & Fabrication. He is giving this a try to see if there is any interest in this type of product. This is a preliminary release of the hitch. Other brands of tractors will
also be available.
This is a heavier replacement 3pt for the 990 series of tractors. He will also sell parts of the hitch separately. It is raw steel and the buyer can paint it how they want. I am putting it on my latest 990 restoration project after it is painted. I ordered the draw bar with all the holes. It normally with have one hole in the middle. It is very well made.
Dan is a skilled welder/fabricator and has grown up in his father's garden and lawn tractor business. He is starting a web presence with this. Otherwise he has done mostly local work.
Any comments are welcome. I can post detailed pictures if requested. Looking at price range of $250.
Did a test fit of this 3pt hitch before painting it. Everything fits like the original. The pins are made from round stock and a washer welded on center. They are all the right length. The chains were harder to hook on. A little filing of the hook ends fixed that. The upper link bracket bolted on fine. Very pleased with the fit so it's ready for paint.
