Are they any different?

I just bought a Sears/roper/Moto Mower tractor, has Sears 3 point hitch.

Is it any different than regular cat 0 3 point hitch?

What are the differences? Is there a way to make it "standard" cat 0 3 point hitch?

I'd rather not chase single brand use implents all across the countryside just to do some work...

All of the Sears implements I've seen are not true cat 0.  The lift pins are set much closer together and they use a different style top link.  I recently purchased a Roper tiller set up for Sears 3 pt. and had to make an adapter to use it with my cat 0.

 

Around here you'd have better luck finding attachments for the Sears 3 pt. than a cat 0 anyhow.  I regularly see Sears plows and cultivators on craigslist.

 

Of course if you're looking for new implements I'm not aware of anything in production for either hitch.  All the new garden tractor implements seem to use a sleeve hitch.

Cat 0 and Sears Sub 0 are Not interchangeable.
Once you get a couple pieces of Sears stuff, you'll be able to measure and adapt a lot of stuff. Brinly adapters were built too.

Maybe this can explain things. This is a screenshot of a Sears 3-point blade. Notice item #14. the 3-point hooks onto this.  The top link mount is forward of the lower links. And the lower links are only 12" wide.

This is my Cat-0 3-point plow. Notice the top link mount is even with the lower links, which are 18" wide.

  These are the pins I made a several years ago so I could use my Sears attachments on my Cat 0 tractor. Worked great.

No need for me to say the Sears 3 points are different....you already know that.

Need a real short top link also.
