I'm in the middle of a box blade build and am planning to make it a 3-point attachment with wishful thinking that I may find a 3 point for my JD 314.

 

I currently have the sleeve hitch for the Deere and would like to be able to mount the 3 point box blade with a sleeve hitch as well.  Does anyone have pics/dimensions/drawings any type of adapter that might do the job?  I've found tons of plans/pics of adapters that mount to the 3 point of the tractor to facilitate the use of sleeve hitch equipment but haven't had any luck finding the other direction.

 

Thanks!

Jeff

Just put the u-shaped part on the box blade for a sleeve hitch.

Thank you.  Just worried that by adding a simple sleeve hitch mount that I would be running too close to the tractor.  If I were to make an extension it would get in the way when I did get my 3 point.  I could fab it to bolt on.  I guess that might be an option.

I looked at this once too.
The big problem I ran into was the force from the toplink area. No good place to run a gusset to the sleeve hitch without making the adapter long and then you won't have the ability to pick it up.
