Bought GT1855 with 3 point hitch, but I've never used one. I have some rods that I think go with the hitch. I bought a 3point receiver to pull my trailer. I don't know how to hook it up. Any pics or help would be helpful.
Thanks

A couple of pics of what you have would help.

 

I use an A-Frame with a ball on it for moving my trailer:

Is the bell crank bolted to the top/back plate, should have a clevis pin attatched to a flat rod that sticks out the back on left side

From there your lift arms attatch to the lower pins, then 2 threaded rods go through threaded swivels in bell crank and the lower end goes to lift arms. These are to ajust your offset height when plowing.

White offered 2 ways, you can get an  A frame like Old buzzard shows or White used a flat bar with 5/8 pins welded on ends to go between your lift arms and then hook your chains tight to limit sway.

I have never seen an A-frame quite like that one, with the ball mount on one side and the sleeve hitch on the other. Did you buy it that way Old Buzzard or build it or modify an existing unit?

Thanks, Old Buzzard but there doesn't appear to be a link to anything.
Maybe I'm missing it.
Thanks,
Frank

OK, pic of Titon attachment, pic of tractor hitch and pic of items from box that came with tractor. May be others in the box I don't recognize. What do you think?
Thanks

It looks like you have all the pieces there.It is pretty hard to explain in words how to put it together. Hopefully somebody on here has one they can take pictures of.
