I designed and had fabricated this electric sleeve hitch using a craftsman hitch and other parts for my John Deere LT 155.  Sadly, my Deere has been retired with a broken rod in the unrepairable Kohler and I have purchased another tractor that will not accept the sleeve hitch.  I have a 42" blade and a trailer hitch ball mount for it and it will accept any standard sleeve hitch implements.  Should fit any LT series tractor and probably many others.  The spread between the arms of the hitch is about 12.75".  I have included two photos of the unit on the Deere.  Also includes a control switch for dashboard mount.  I have about $475 in it.  I can take $350.  Let me know through the Forum.

Why is the engine unbuildable?   If was a KT17, might agree, but not sure that would be in this newer tractor, so what is it?  Blow a hole in block big time or ??

Rod went, tore up block and machine work around here is very expensive.  Was a CV15S 15 HP Kohler.  Quote to repair was over $550 with me reassembling the engine.  That was just parts and machinework.  Broke rod, camshaft, tore up piston skirt and block.  Got a White GT1855 with 3 pt hitch, 50" deck and 2 PTOs that needs head gaskets.  I'm doing the engine now.  Really a better fit for 7.25 acres than the LT155.

LT 155 is sold.  Will be parting out the good items in the CV15S Kohler.
