Anyone know what this sleeve hitch went to originally? I picked it up with hopes to adapt it to a cub cadet. I think it may be for a sears suburban. The gap between the arms is 13 1/2'' wide.

:welcome:  to GTT

 

 

Like I said over at the 'other place' it's not for a Bolens.

 

However, we have guys here that will be able to ID it for sure.

Welcome to GTT. I don't know what that goes to. My Ford, Snapper, and Bolens are different. Looks like it is for one with two lift arms. I can't think of any.

:welcome: to GTTalk,
While the mechanics are roughly right for a Sears, it's way to wide... Unless we're talking about something in the FF series.

I was wondering about any of the different tractors with 3 point capability if this was an adapter for one of them to use a sleeve hitch implement.

Here's a pic of the FF sleeve hitch;

The Ford is similar on the sleeve hitch, but different type of lift arm.

The lift arms on the above piece are a lot smaller than Cat-0.

Don't recognize it but it's not for a JD. Could it be a 3pt to sleeve hitch adapter? You would remove the lift arms and put that on in their place.

I agree with JDBrian and MH81. Here's a pic of what it might look like attached to a tractor. Hmmmmmmmm?

Here's the link to the thread it came from (I think the pick came from the second page).

Cool I guess that's that mystery solved. Do you have any pics you could post of yours? Thanks for all the help everyone I figured it had to be an adapter for a 3 point of some sort. I cant find an id plate or decent paint color anywhere on it.

Now to figure out a way to mount it to a cub.
