I've been wanting to take a second tractor to the Ball Hallow Plow Day. I keep looking at the 782 and saying what if.

 I took the 3 pt. off of my Sears XL10 and put it on  the cub.

I've got a second XL 10 that donated the rear hitch plate. 

I also used an extra 2" receiver that was laying on the shelf.  I drilled a 3/4" hole in the receiver to match the hole in the cub hitch plate and bolted it on under the cub hitch plate.

I utilized two existing holes and had to drill two other holes in the XL 10 plate,  and bolted it to the rear of the cub frame.

I welded a 5/8" bolt to the top of the receiver that match the hitch hole in the XL 10 plate.

It has the same angle as if it were on the sears and sits about 1&1/4 inches higher.

After bolting on the 3 pt. I have to figure how to attach it  to the lift arm of the 782.

I can put the inserts in the receiver for a ball or plain hole.

So far the only extra expense was for a 3/4" bolt that I didn't have.

Once I'm happy with it I'll tear it down and paint it to match the cub.  And take more pics.      Rick

Yes, but it is the one on my SS 14.  Which I was going to use at plow day.

I think I can borrow one, and may have a lead on buying one.   Rick

I have some bar treads I can put on, and may change the fronts to ribs.   Rick
