I put a 1500# actuator on my sleeve hitch, I can easily lift enough to raise the front of. 960# tractor off the ground.IMG_2558.JPG

That's what I use, one for a Johnny bucket type front end loader, and one for lifting implements on the back.  All run off of a car battery on the back.


I had a similar rig, winch front and rear.IMG_1448.JPG IMG_1449.JPG

anyone have any ideas to convert the sears 3 point hitch to a powered lift? Thinking of using electric actuator, seems simplest...

What would I need to do, to convert it to power lift? What would I need for material?

The picture that Tahoe provided says it all.

My brother and I converted a manual lift to electric, using the Sears actuator.

It was originally on his Sears, then I adapted it to a Cub Cadet.  Sure beats using the manual lift.

I had originally used a cheap 4" actuator but after it broke we installed the Sears actuator.

Give me a few minutes and I'll get some pictures.    Rick

Is that the tiller lift arms on that or is that how they came?
Mine was missing the lift arms and I've been guessing based off a couple pics.

I am not sure. I asked my buddy who has 3 of the electric 3pts, he's says he thinks you ordered whatever length arms depending on your implement. He says they also use a longer, bigger top link
