I see a few people selling "sears cat 0 3 point hitch" or even "sears cat 1 3 point hitch" ploughs and cultivators.  But I thought sears only had a weird small 3 point hitch that was narrower than cat 0?  I don't have a sears tractor and my 3 point is cat 0 and none of these people are willing to actually measure the width of what they are selling so I am wondering if anyone can confirm for certain if these people are just mistaken about what they have or if it is possible to actually have a sears cat 0 hitch?

At one time or other,  Sears sold everything. 

Sears had their own brand of farm tractors for a while so I would guess they also had implements to go with them.

You also used to be able to buy a house from Sears - in kit form.

Most Sears garden tractors were the "sub Cat 0" at about 12 1/2" wide, standard Cat 0 is 19-20, something like that.

I've never seen regular sized GT implements at Cat 0 sized, but as Gtractor stated, they may have sold them. Once Sears got past the suburban years, they pretty much went with sleeve type hitches/implements.

They did sell them. The farm and ranch catalogs were full of stuff
They also had some stuff for the FF series that were probably cat or 1

As far as I know all the sub cat 0 sears stuff has a hitch like this:
Sears-91760652-One-Bottom-Plow-3-Point-_

 

Notice that the lift pins are several inches rearward of the top link attach point, and that the top link would need a 90 degree bend on the end or a clevis, where the standard cat 0 hitch has the clevis built in.

This picture is tagged as a Sears plow.  It appears to be a true cat x implement, presumably cat 0.

Hopefully they're sharing pictures so you can at least use that as a clue.

I think that's the key right there, the clevis being on the top link instead of on the implement.  Thanks guys.

Sears did sell Cat 0 implements as the FF series used those. If you see a pic of a Cat 0 like MiCarl posted (second pic) of the plow above, that's Cat 0. The rest was sub Cat 0 like his first pic!
