My wife bought me a 3 pt assembly for my  318 for Christmas. i have it mounted and am ready to put it to use. I bought a older Sears single bottom plow and cultivator last spring, It is for a narrow 3 pt spacing (about 15 inches) so i am currently making a set of pin extension to make to wider that i can just bolt on and use. i will add some pictures later after they are made.

This may not work since I'm not familiar with the variance between a real cat 0 like you have and the Sears "Cat 0", but can you turn your arms around so they spread "inward" instead of "outward" ?

Where did you get the 3 point from? Ruegg? Heavy Hitch? Redlandhill? Jim's repair? Factory?

The hitch looks great on there. A 3pt is a great addition to any tractor. It really increases the versatility!

it is a Reimad 3 pt, I think the Ruegg would be a better one, its Rock Shaft is closer to the orginal JD design and i have read it is astronger built shaft. I was useing the lower arm to pull some saplings out of the ground and noticed that i twisted my Rock Shaft (Solid 1" thick shaft), i ground off the weld on the rock shaft lift arm and got it back in align with the Cylinder side lift arm then rewelded. I also welded and spine along the back side of the rock shaft to make it stronger. It should be better and I also learned a lesson on what to do and what not to do. I should have used both arms to pick up with anyway and not just the one. We learn from our mistakes.

Thank you for the info and the review. I see there is a $60 price difference between the two. I had never looked at the Redlandhill hitch before, holy $$$$$$.
