I picked this up for $50. I thought about making it work with a sleeve hitch.

I just converted mine to mount on a 3pt, best thing I've done with it. Made it much easier to use.

I modified a Agrifab for a sleeve hitch. I use it on my Cub Cadet 125. With our soil in southest Texas I have to put quite a bit of weight on it. I have about 300 pounds of scrap cylinder rods that we put on it. At first we were using the manual lift with the spring assist, but that wasn't getting it, so I upgraded to a hydraulic lift.

I will try to post pictures tomorrow.

Hope you post some pics.  I'd love to convert mine to sleeve hitch.

On the front I used a piece of channel iron then decided it didn't have enough support.  Then I added the square tubing underneath so it is kind of a forklift effect.  My son used it to do yards around the neighborhood and after a while the plastic bushings were failing so I added real bearings to the ends.

I want to convert mine to sleeve hitch as well for convenience, but I need to buy my welder first. For me, it will more than likely be a Spring project.
