I have been exchanging mail with a fab shop about making me a sleeve hitch for the new tractor, he doesn't like to make one off items. If he sets up to produce these would anyone else be interested?

What kind of price are we talking about? And does it include the lift rodfrom the lift handle to the sleeve hitch?

None of that has really been discussed, he wanted to know if there was a market. I really didn't know if there is or not.

It's hard to say what the market would be like. My guess is that you could sell 10-20 of them some what easily. After that I'd guess they would get harder to sell. Personally I think there is a small market for them but nothing like the John Deere market.

Check out http://www.ballardfabrication.com he just made me a three point for my large frame and I emailed him the tube frame sleeve hitch plans. He is willing to make them. Tell him Newt sent you!
