I got this with the Ford 100 that I bought last summer and the man said here this goes with it,so I brought it home. I am cleaning up and was ready to pitch it and found this picture in another forum. I have the the bar to go to the lift handle, just did not know what to do with it. The pictures in the internet showed all kinds of attachments hooked up to it. Is this a Ford hitch?

That is a ford sleeve hitch.You are missing the piece that slids it to the hitch and has 2 bolts that would go against the attachment. Wheelhorse used a similar set up.later josh

Sorry,but now that I know what it is it will be put to use, I have wanted a hitch for that tractor. I have a different style sleeve hitch coming, hope to have it next week. I have 4 Ford GT's and none of then had a hitch. I am in the hitch and attachment mode now and want to see how many different ones I can find, I have more tractors then room to store them.

It's really cool when something "comes with" the tractors we buy and later we find out it's super practical. Glad it's worked to your advantage this time......as it many times is something that's missing from the package that ruins some of the joy.

Would anybody have the bar that I am missing for the hitch on my Ford 100 pictured above that they would sell me?

Make sure you're getting a good deal in the trade. I don't think these are very common.

Often refered to as slot hitch there was implements made that would hook directly up to this or there is a slot to sleeve adaptor.

My Moline 114 hydro has that hitch I would like some slot hitch attachments I have several sleeve hitch attachments so may have to make the adaptor.
