Sleeve hitches aren't all that hard to find, and there are a lot of attachments for them.

I'm pretty sure that if you wanted a 3-pt for your 1050, you would have to "roll your own".

Another thing to consider is the weight of the attachments. If you are a "light weight" like me, some of the attachments will be a real bear to raise and lower. I had a tiller on my G10 for just one day, and that convinced me to find the hydraulic lift kit for it. That kit will fit most of the tube frames that don't have a hydraulic lift as standard.

Welcome, kubotakid. Good luck on the quest for a hitch and your 1050. Post some pics so we can drool/admire what you have. I think you find help forth coming, maybe some one has a spare hitch they would part with.

The 1050 Bolens is a great little tractor,but they didn't come with a 3pt hitch.I am sure one could be fabricated though.

The Sleeve hitches are not that diffucult to find.
