I have a real nice craftsman 8 hp gt tiller. It is a sleeve hitch setup.what I am thinking on doing is making an adapter to 3 point.seems pretty simple to make an adapter to fit into hitch on tiller. Just make a drawbar sorta thing like the drawbar I made for my 3 point, so it is held with the pin on hitch,weld a piece for the center link to hook to.is the pin diameter all the same on 3 Points? I'm going to fit it up to my suburban 12,it has 5/8 pin holes. My thinking is when I sell it if everything works right, it won't matter what hitch you have on the tractor,might be easier to sell

How wide? If it doesnt cover the width of the tractor, you will pack it back down on the next pass

I think it's a 36 inch not sure,I don't plan on using it,I was just going to use the suburban for a test tractor. Good point tater.i thought it would be a good selling point,for it to fit a sleeve hitch or a 3 point

So does that tiller cover the width of the tractor? If so how much you want for just the tiller? (I seen your ad on the Suburban)

I'm not sure what the tiller is worth yet. It was used very little.

That's a good point !  Maybe if it's narrower then the tractor you could offset the till to one side . The factory tiller on my Economy  Jim Dandy is like that . You just need to remember which side ( direction )  to work from
