Hi guys. I was wondering if someone could get me some detailed dimensions and pictures of a Bolens tube frame sleeve hitch sleeve hitches? It would be greatly appreciated. I don't have the cash to buy a sleeve hitch so I thought I'd get one fabricated. Thanks in advance

Look in the manuals section.  There is a set of detailed plans with measurements for a sleeve hitch in there.

Sorry to bring an older topic back to the top, but I am looking to build my own sleeve hitch as well. I found a file in the manuals section (blueprints section) that had the ISO specs for a sleeve hitch, but it only has the dimensions that are common to all sleeve hitches. There are some dimensions needed to build a hitch for a Bolens tube frame that would not be the same as for a Cub Cadet or a John Deere, Etc  and those are not included in that file. Am I looking at the wrong file (is there one in another section that I missed)? If there is a file that has the dimensions that are specific to the Bolens tube frame, can someone tell me what part of the manuals section to look? If not, is there anyone that can measure theirs and give me the other measurements I would need? There are only about 5 dinensions that I would need that are not in the ISO file.

 

Thanks,Jim
