JD does not make a sleeve hitch for the G100 that I am aware of. It is not rated to handle ground engaging implements.

 Even though it may not be rated for a sleeve hitch it is pretty heavy at 606lbs and has a K66 transmission which is the largest one that is typically used in a LT. It looks to me to be as strong as a lot of the newer Sears tractors that have a sleeve hitch option. You may be able to adapt a Sears hitch to the G100 as long as you realize that you are pushing the envelope as far as doing any heavy ground engaging work with it.

Thanks. I have since replaced the trans with a beefier one, sine the K66 blew up (they were not very good). JD lists the G100 as able to accept a "JD integral sleeve hitch", with ground engaging options.

In that case, what is the width of the rear hitch plate between the rear tires? Let's see if a manual Craftsman hitch will work.
