Thanks guys! I talked to him and will pick it up in the morning. Nice guy. Was part of a tractor deal he bought and he just did not have any use for it. He did not know the history on it. Just curious. What do you think this piece is worth or better what would you pay for one in this good of shape?

I started thinking and went back and found a few threads on the earthcavators. Pretty much the range I was thinking.

 

I got to pull my old Yamaha Mini Enduro's out for the early 70's and sell one, so I can bring some cash in......at the point where something has to go for something to come in.

 

Thanks for posting Old Buzzard! I am not looking at Craigslist now a days.....just too tempting. :D

Glad I could help.

I'd really like one that size for my large frames, but I just got a 32" one for the tube frames.

Only paid $200.00 for it, but had to go out to the St. Louis area to pick it up.

Seems like I can find stuff, but it's always a long ways off. Good thing that the wife likes road trips :D :D :D

Did some research. This particular gannon was made for the Kubota b6000 and the ford 1220.

42" about 158 lbs. I found a posting on a Cub Cadet forum that spells out what the model numbers represent.

Here is the link. http://www.ihcubcade...html?1267195183

Still would like to know what years they were made.

I can't see why a 3-pt implement would/could be for a particular tractor, unless it's because of the paint color used.

 

The whole point of the sleeve hitch and 3-pt hitch is avoid proprietary hitches.

 

Gannon did make the Earthcavator with proprietary hitches, in fact the one I have is an example of that, but a 3-pt should be universal.

 

ETA:

 

I did some searching, and Gannon is now a subsidiary of WOOD Manufacturing, but it appears that they only make box scrapers now.

 

A bit more searching, and I found some information on the Earthcavator trademark.

 

It was filed for on 5/31/1966, registered on 2/12/1968, and expired on 11/3/1992

Unless it is setup for Limited Cat 1 would be very close to Cat 0 but larger pins maybe

 

I just bought one in Ohio just need to find it a ride home

 

 I would like to have the sleeve hitch one in your other post, money just won't let it happen right now

Dang!

 

You mean that there was one here in Ohio and I missed it ?!?!?!?!?

 

As I understand it, Limited CAT 1 is just CAT 0 dimensions, but with CAT 1 pins.

 

I guess that's so the folks like Deere can claim that the X700 has a CAT 1 3-pt.  If you've ever seen an X700, you would know that they aren't capable of handling a true CAT 1 implement.

 

To be fair, Deere isn't the only one that does that.  Others do it as well, and it's nothing new.  Sears did it with their "limited Cat 0" hitches.

Picked it up at lunch. It has hardly been used. I will check when I get home if it is Cat 0 or a combination. Top area link hole does look smaller than bottom link. Nice guy - I paid less than his asking price but still A good deal for us both. It was with a Kubota that he bought. I think it had stayed inside all of its life.
