You just sell the slot hitch impliments and get some sleeve hitch ones to replace them.
Slot hitch implements seem to get a premium from WH collectors.
I think someone else used slot hitches as well.

If I didn't have 7 Wheel Horses I probably would let them go :D. Actually I'm down to only a DP-861 disc that uses the slot hitch and you are right about collectors wanting them and the premium they fetch.

I received the Titan draw bar today and installed it on my daily worker. What a piece of iron! With the adjustable center link and ball mounted, it is about 40lbs.

That looks great on there! :thumbs: Overkill for a cat 0 for sure and a bargain to boot.

Put the old girl to work today, time to get the garden ready for planting here. The 7 tine Brinly cultivator didn't even make the old 960 break a sweat. She did spin the tires a couple of times but with both wheels powered it was no problem. I almost put chains on before cultivating but there was no need for it.

 

Still have a few items to refurb but so far I'm more than pleased with the performance. Cultivated the whole garden at fast idle and it didn't even grunt and the tines were buried!

Here is a pic of the slot to sleeve adapter I made which fit the 2" receiver perfectly. No need for another adapter!

Looks like too much shade in your garden.
What are you going to grow?

That area is shaded in late afternoon and gets a good 8 hours of full sun. The zucchini, turnips, beets, radishes and cucumbers go in that area.

Could you pull the adapter out and take a picture of it? It is hard to see what you did. I found a cultivator in my daughters fence line and it has a sleeve hitch on it. It will work great in her garden. Thanks.

 

Looks like a Wheel Horse in the background doing light duty.

Yep, the old C-101 was pulling the cart full of tomato and pepper sets, taking a break from mowing duty. Here are a few pics of the slot to sleeve adapter. It's made of 5/8 X 2" bar stock and 1/2" black pipe. The holes are 1/2" and the adjusting bolts are spaced 2-1/2" on center.

After looking at your pics above that VTXrider requested & the last pic on post #65 how are you keeping the adapter in the sleeve. I see a pin going through the sleeve but it also looks like your adapter would be under the pin. Thanks  :thumbs:

What you can't see in the first picture is the 1/2" pin that goes in the front of the 2" receiver. Took a pic of it below. The horizontal pin in the receiver keeps the adapter from flopping up and down.

Posting this update to the thread to include the lift actuator, a 4" stroke Linak rated at 1,524 pounds. The only thing missing now are the custom decals which are on order.
