My goodness cub guys think a lot of there hitches. I can't find one that's affordable. I looked at the extreme motor works version. Certainly a nice hitch but I just can't bite that 500$ bullet. Especially when I've got a few fabrication skills. You know is gotten to the point that hitch parts are even high. As of right now this is the most favorite tractor I've had so hopefully I can make this functional and cosmetically awesome. I won a complete hitch setup off a allis 5010 from Joes outdoor power. I think it will be a good start. Pics to follow OHD the parts arrive.

Take your time, wet as it is, it'll likely be Fall before you can make a plow day....but then you'll be putting out a garden likely.

Hitch was shipped today. I have some ideas but it's hard to brain storm without the parts.

Look what was by the door when I got home. Hopefully after my son goes to bed I can get to the shop and get it all unpacked.

Box #1
A sleeve hitch adapter. It seems small but might be right for a cat0. I could make one for less than I paid I'm sure but I dont have a welder here and I need to get this done asap.

Box #2 the hitch. I could have sworn I had a rock shaft with this kit. I didn't so that's not good. I choose this one because it is cat1. Is easier to adapt down then to adapt up. I laid it out just to see. The arms are long so I'm not sure if I am going to shorten them or try to tuck them under the tractor. I don't think it would hurt anything to have them 20" behind the tractor, well except for center of gravity. I can't believe I dont have the rock shaft. I have no idea why the pictures look flushed.

Ground engaging equipment and pulling stuff around the yard. This gal will probably never mow.

You're right, they are cheaper to build that looks nice.

If I leave the arms the length they are this is how far they will stick out behind the tractor. Seems a little far. I've decide to build a sub frame that comes from the axle up the back of the tractor to the top of the seat pan. I think that will be the easiest way to mount everything with out disturbing to much of the tractor.
