Since the reference to weights is going well, and will be a quick reference to see which type fits what brand, I thought maybe we should start a reference thread for hitches. I often see questions posted as to what type of hitch, and what will it fit, so lets post pictures of the various types of hitches available.

 

Again, like the weight thread, post separate or individual pictures of each type that you have, and give some information as to what brand of tractor the hitch fits, what the dimensions are, and the type of hitch you are posting, such as integral, three point, etc..

 

Keep in mind, we are wanting to help out guys that are new to collecting, so give as much detail and information that you can. If you have the complete lift system, post them as well if possible, so that guys looking to buy hitch set ups, will no exactly what they need and what to look for.

Dang, now I have to go buy film for the digital camera so I can take pics of all I have. Do homemade hitches count?

These are John Deere integral sleeve hitches for the 1963-1967 round fender 110's and 112's. The one on the left is for the '63, '64, and early '65 110's, and the one on the right is for the later '65's, '66 and '67 110's and 112's. Notice the one on the left has the cross bar welded to the top of the hitch yoke, as the one on the right, the cross bar is welded to the sides of the hitch yoke. The one on the right also has a transport chain that could be linked through a bracket mounted on the back of the hitch plate, so that you could chain the sleeve hitch in the raised position, and still be able to use you lift lever to raise and lower the mower deck without having to remove rear attached equipment.

I'm still looking to buy four more of these hitches, so if anybody ever see's any at a sale for a reasonable price, keep me in mind. I don't like to spend more than $75.00 each for these, so keep that in mind too! I'm only needing the type as shown on the right.

And, coming soon to a thread near you, a factory 3-point for the FF. Stay tuned for developments!

Oops forgot all the measurements. Have to go out and get those when it warms a bit.

Don't have any pics ready, but Sears is considered a sub Cat 0 hitch. Theirs is only 12 1/2" wide where as standard CAT 0 is approx 19-20" wide. Implements are pretty much Sears use only as the attachemnts points are too close for std CAT0, I've tried, it binds up lower arms. There were 4 hitch variations I believe, the first for the DB models was a 2 bolt that went on rearend, then they upgraded to a 4 bolt plate that bolted on to rear hitch plate of tractor. There was 3 versions of the 4 bolt, short arm for earlier models, long arm and electric actuator.

4 bolts fit 66-79 Sears tractors, maybe DB's too, not sure. 2 Bolt will also fit 66-79, but are less supported and have thinner/lighter lower arms.
