Which is more plentiful and therefore easier to find and purchase...sleeve hitch implements or 3 pt hitch implements? It seems I have to build either a sleeve hitch or a 3 pt hitch for my tractor, but which one?

I'd say sleeve hitch implements, by far.

I really think it is an even playing field. Finding original attachments is the hard part. For average size garden tractors I think going with sleeve hitch style implements is better. However if you have the skills to build a 3pt for your tractor I say go that route to be different.

Well, I really like the idea of a 3 pt hitch, and then if sleeve hitch implements is all I can find I can always put a sleeve hitch adapter on the 3pth, right?

Harry

PS I'm still undecided.

Yep, you can always build an a frame for the 3pt to mount a brinly style implement.

I really think one would be just as difficult as the other as far as skill is concerned. But I do have blueprints for both. Well, not actually blueprints, but a good drawing.

sleeve hitch attachments are definately more common than cat 0 attachments
so... thats why you get a 3pt. you get to use sleeve hitch attachments wiht an adapter or 3pt attachment
it also seems like most sleeve hitches are manual lift and the 3pts minus the sears are powered

Well, my John Deere 212 would also be manual either way I went because I can't afford to put hydraulic or electric actuator on it at this time.
