I can't figure out what category of hitch my Dynamark 14 is. How do i figure this out?

I would think it's category 0. What size holes does your 3pt arms have?

Cat. 0 ------- 5/8" holes

Cat. 1 ------- 7/8" holes

Cat. 2 ------- 1 and 1/8" holes

The pics that you've posted before show a sleeve hitch. Have you gotten a three point for it?

Here are the rest of the specs for three point hitches.

Going to try to build one. It'll be a bit tough to do cause of the limited space, but i'm sure I can pull it off!

Going to Princess Auto (man heaven) today to get my steel and parts for the 3pt. Hoping to have that project complete by the end of this weekend. Stay tuned for pics!

Thanks for keeping us updated. Would definitely like to see how it turns out and might be inspiration for some of us to do our own.

There's a factory hitch? What are the lengths of the bottom bars and the top link?

Update: So far so good. Need to shorten my top link (not shown) and extend the top lift arms for more lift, but works well. Also need to make a separate lever for the link to the cylinder. Probably only a few hours of fabrication left then I can get on the painting.

Just move the holes in on the bottom arms closer to the tractor end, this will give you more lift travel.

well that's a hell of an idea! Thanks skyrydr2!! Will do tonight. It would probably be good to put a few holes along each bar for height options anyway :)

latest updates to the hitch. Added top link, moved the rigging screws back on the lower bars and added a lever on the hydraulic lift.
