I was wondering if there was a "correct" hole to use for the sleeve hitch on the 10's & 12's?
Ryan's has 3 different points it can mount to. I don't see a particular reason one over the other, but I may be missing something. Also, is the "Middle" position in the lift Handle designed for plowing position or is that for something else?

Alan, on the lift handle I have the lift rod attached to the bottom hole for the most travel. As for the three attachment points on the angle brackets that bolt to the rear of the tractor I don't think that it matters other then to use the multiple mounting locations depending on how high or low you need the attachment to be.

There is also 2 positions on the rear lift arm for the rod that comes from the lift handle.

I have found that when I use the brinly plow it works best when the sleeve hitch is in a certain hole. I always forget which one and have to experiment to find it again. When you start setting up and using the plow you can find it threw trial and error. It's kinda fun. My tiller has a label on it that tells you which hole to mount it to, can't remember which one now. Also when I till I move the lift rod on the lift handle to the position that gives me the least travel but the most leverage. The tiller with extension is very heavy.
