A friend brought me this today. He is a 80 year old retired Wheel Horse dealer who has more energy then mot of us ad is still sharp as a tack. He likes to tinker still and once in a while he does a little buying,selling,or trading. He got this hitch a while back and doesn't know what its for either. It fits my Fiberglass bodied Power King 1214 almost like it was made for it. Anybody know or have ay ideas what brand and model tractor that it was made for. It is a nice Heavy duty sleeve hitch. I had a homemade sleeve hitch on the PK now. So i will have to rework the homemade lift arm for this hitch.

Probably off of a Ford or Jacobsen.

Here is a picture with it next to a Cub sleeve hitch for size reference. Here is also a picture of the homemade sleeve hitch that was on the tractor when i got it,it is pretty crude and needs more finish work. I will throw in a few more pictures just for good measure ( and we all love pictures ).

If you give a couple of measurements it would help.
I have some Ford/Jacobsens. But, I don't have a factory hitch.
I've seen lots of pictures though!

I'd say it's a Ford/Jacobsen.

I would have to say Ford as well. I would like to find one like that to use with my plow. But it looks like the lifting arm is on the wrong side, my Ford 3 point lifts from the other side.

The lift is on the correct side, same as the one on my Ford!

Mine lifts from the left side if you are sitting on the seat, hmmmm, did they change sides when they built the LGT18 88-91??

Must have. The 72-83 were all on the right.

The PK is set up to have a lift arm on either side. I agree it looks like it would work for a ford or Jake but i would love to document the actual brand that it was built for,just for personal knowledge sake.
