I really want to try plowing with my 314.

 

But it does not have a 3 point hitch

 

Sooooo, how do i hook up a plow to it ?

 

I have limited knowledge on how they are actually supposed to work.

 

I need lots of pics on how they are hooked up and where .

 

I'm hooked on buying implements for the 314, it seems plenty strong :D

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated by me, probably not the wife though !

The easiest way would be to get an intergral sleeve hitch.

Yes it does. It uses a rod from the existing mower lift cylinder. You can see the lift rod coming through the slot in the rear frame. I have a homemade hitch on my 314. It was on there when I got it. It seems to me there may be some plans floating around for building one.

I have a set of plans for an Integral Hitch. They're pretty detailed, and even if you don't follow them exactly, they should give you some ideas on making one. Here they are:

Greeting:

 

In my post about the Integral Hitch, I should have said I'm pretty sure I got those plans from someone's post here at GTTalk.

The one I've got is not a quick attach like the diagrams. It just bolts on. That's one way to simplify things. You just need 4 holes in the hitch and some bolts. You do loose the ability to quick change the hitch. I didn't think that was an issue until I got a 317 and now to change the hitch out from the 314 it is a bit of work.

I use my 314 at plow days all the time....They are plenty strong for the job.  I use the exact same integral hitch and plow as shown above.

I've been looking around for the integral hitch on craigslist and ebay.

 

Holy cow ! I didn't think they would be that expensive . I might have to wait till next summer for this purchase.

If you have the skills and resources building one would be pretty easy with the plans from Harlan.

I might just have to try that as a winter project. I'm fair at welding, my dad is much better than i am.

 

"Hey dad, what are your plans for this winter? :D "
