Came in for lunch the other day and had a quick look on Kijiji . There's this ad about a plough for a GT and its only 10 -15 miles from me. I give the number a call and the woman says just a minute you can talk to my husband.Anyway he says he  doesn't know what it fits but its in the way and wants to get rid of it.I tell him OK be there in 5 or 10 minutes. I grab my wallet ,my truck keys ,lock up the house and away I go.I get there and the guy is outside waiting for me had it advertised for $35 I say's I'll give you $25 he says sold.I pay him and go to grab it and he says just a minute and I'll help you carry it to your truck [it's pretty heavy. Anyway this is what I bought. Now I'll have to figure out the best way to change it to work on the 3 pth.

.... Now I'll have to figure out the best way to change it to work on the 3 pth.

 

Easy, you don't change anything.

 

You get one of these:

An A-Frame with a sleeve hitch adapter on it.

 

That way you can use any sleeve hitch implement, and not have to modify them.

 

Great score on that as well :thumbs:  :thumbs: :thumbs:

OB beat me to it. Just a simple 3ph/ sleeve hitch adapter. After you build that, you will be out stealing buying more stuff.

 

How about sharing the $100 you saved with your buddies on GTT :wave:

I couldn't belive my eyes when I saw it in the add. Being close like I was and first to respond was the only reason I was able to pick it up and for that price. I do know I was very lucky. Now guess I'll have to make a, a -frame for the 3 pth .

Sweet deal. Looks like it's hardly been used. Sounds like one of those deals where you pay the man, load it and run before he changes his mind.
