I guess it is a limited Cat-1. The holes are for a Cat-1 but the spacing seems a little tight about 21" just inside the first mounts.

I want to use this on a Cat-0 tractor. Interested in any ideas on how to do this.

Scott, I have gotten some Cat 0 pins that had lots of thread on them at TSC or our local Atwoods (farm supply). They also have Cat 1 to Cat 0 bushings at times. Here's another place for the pins.

Kenny my implement does not have pins. It has two brackets that the arms slide in between and then the pins are pushed through. What I might do is weld one end of the cat-0 pin with a bushing and a washer to stop it from going through, then have a bushing on the other end with a hole drilled through it and the pin so I can lock it in place. I suspect if it is ever sold, better chance it will be some one with a Cat-0 hitch than a Cat-1. So maybe just go ahead and cut the brackets off and build a Cat-0 setup instead

Why do any cutting and/or welding?

 

Looks like you would be able to use a set of CAT 0 lift arm pins on the inside tabs, and point them to the inside.

 

There should be room to slip the nut in between the tabs.

Ahhhhhh. So Kenny's suggestion was right- I was not thinking about being able to face the pins to the inside. That should work! Thanks OB and Kenny!

Guess I should have been clearer with my suggestion, Scott! But that is what I was thinking since you have 21" between them,

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.



Well I was going back over the spreadsheet and I obviously can't read well on my phone. Upon further inspection, mine is a Cat-0 with Cat-1 pins - not for specifically for a a Kubota or ford. That model is 2 rows farther down on the spread sheet. Mainly just want to set the record straight for future reference.
