Can anyone who owns the Sears Craftsman sleeve hitch; CRAFTSMAN SLEEVE HITCH ATTACHMENT 24586, please measure the dimension of frame it fits on. I am looking at this unit for a John Deere GT245. The frame measures just about 13 1/4" across at the back. I am wondering if this sleeve hitch will fit the JD? thanks

Yes it does, thank you!

How far is up to the slotted holder for the bolts on the side (from the normal hitch area, up to where the bolt has to go into the side of the frame?) I hope that made sense?

Thanks

Tom

Do you mean up & down? If so, do you want straight up and down or angled? My tractor has an angled rear plate, but the sleeve hitch unit is universal to the older and newer (flat rear) back plate.

Can't get the tape in there straight, but best guess is 7.25 inches.
