Any generic cat 0 sleeve hitch adapter should work. There are a few that think the FFs are not rare. They have obviously never looked for attachments for one.

While you are looking, let me know if you run across a snow blower or front blade. The quick connect GT18 type crap wont work.

The snow blade I have for my FF20 is an adapted GT18 blade. Had to make a mount for it to attach to the FF. Here's the thread.

I had to do the same thing and it has been reffered to as a "cobbled up blade" by some members

Well, that sucks!  I would call it reworked to fit!  If they only knew how hard the 54" blades are to find, at least around here.

I still have the original mount for the GT 18.

I don't think so.  The Sears Cat 0 is not standard - it's only 12" wide and the top of the A-frame would be forward of vertical like a standard Cat 0.

 

Making one would be fairly simple.  This recent topic was about designing and building one: http://gardentractor...tch#entry732384

 

 

******  EDIT  *********

 

I see that I gave inaccurate information.  See below.

I beg to differ! The FF Cat 0 is a true Cat 0! I have 3 of them now. One is on the back of Alice!

They had a 3ph for the ss/ suburban stuff that would be a CAT -.5. It was brand specific. The FF was a true CAT0

I stand corrected, and learned something today.

 

If it's a standard cat 0 hitch an adapter should be easy.  There are usually half a dozen listed on e-Bay.

The one you described was a Sears 3-point hitch, made to accept Sears attachments only.
