Has anyone ever put a Sears rear lift on a Massey 10 or 12 to operate the rear lift?

 

This way 2 attachments can be mounted to the tractor and work separately from each other.

I would say a newer style craftsman sleeve hitch would work better than the older style 3 point.

Got any pictures of the 2 different types?

Can you use the old style with the Massey sleeve hitch instead of the 2 lower arms?

Are you referring to the manual sleeve hitch or the electric actuated one?

 

I mounted the manual style on a JD 212 and liked it.

The model # on the Craftsman hitch was 486 24536, and it was was 13 & 9/16" inside to inside across the mounting plates.

That looks like it mounts Vertical not at an angle like the older Sears GTs did.

Right. The newer ones will work with the newer style Craftsman tractors with the flat back
