Well, I got a phone call today, a friend of a friend had a emergency with a water line.
He hit a water cap sticking out of the ground with his big John Deere tractor, braking the pipe off 3 1/2' down. He called because I have a small Brantly backhoe on my Kubota L2000, I told him I could be there in 30 minutes (had to put on the backhoe and fix a trailer tire) I got it dug in a few minutes, we were then looking around his shed for a piece of PVC pipe and I had seen this 3-pt hitch sitting there. I asked him about it and he bought it off of a guy who was going to put it on a 4 wheeler but couldn't find a way to do it. So he bought it for his tractor and then ended up selling his tractor so he no longer needed it.
I asked him if he'd want to sell it and he said we could trade labor for the 3-pt so I said YES.
The 3-pt is new, everything was bought from a farm store and never mounted.
I'm planing on putting this on my Bolens HT23, I can't wait to get it on and working!
