Found some potential implements to buy
Posted September 20, 2011 - 10:52 PM
According to one of the manuals that came with the implements the part that attaches to the sleeve hitch was a model no. 917-253182 called a Sleeve 3-point Hitch adapter.
I got to look back at my first pictures and then these pictures....but I think I have ended up with a seeder that is a 3point and a seeder that is attached by a sleeve hitch...
I have a manual here that shows the seeder was sold with a cat o 3pt and a sleeve hitch. So you think the piece on the end of the seeder has been made into a sleeve hitch rather than an original sleeve hitch right??
All of this is still new to me.....appreciate any help .....would like to know what I have found and if it is unique or a common piece....and if it is original or has been modified.

I was amazed the manuals for the seeder, sleeve hitch 3pt adapter, harrow, cultivator, middlebuster, etc were with the implements. I need to look but has anyone uploaded these manuals as a sticky for those who are looking for info?? I could scan them when I get a chance.
Thanks for your help... ......still learning about these implements.......and appreciate any info on these pieces. I don't know at this point what is original and what has been modified.

The seeder may be in there, but they made several models.
I for one, would love to see some dimensions and a bunch of pics on the 3 point adapt. I've never seen one that wasn't home made.

MH81 will take some pictures of the adapter once I have unloaded them. I left the seeder with my friend to get the rear axle to turn. Just wish they had not had the lawn mower and snow plow "taken" by a friend to fix and never returned. Would be pretty cool to have the set. If he does not find the mower and plow.....I will probably sell the owners manual to the deck and the mower. He had a 15hp suburban tractor 917.25201 and the deck was a 917.25358...manual says 917.253530 but he had lightly marked it out and hand written the 25358 part.
10" plow has had some welding done to the bottom blade. Rest looks to be original. Believe it or not I am heading home with 8 plastic quail crates, 1 disc harrow, 1 middle plow, 1 10" plow, 1 cultivator......plus my luggage in my buick lesabre....to say the least I am heading home full with my "finds" on this trip.
Will pick the seeder up next time I am down that way.
