Here are pics of the 3pt sleeve hitch adapter. Also still trying to figure out what these arms and spockets attached to and for what. No tag on the arms.

Thanks, I may beg some more measurements off you. That looks like a good project.

The small gear looks like a seeder gear, but the other looks like regular chain. Does the bearing looked like it was a factory attach to the arm?

yes it does. Looks to me to a factory made arm and components. I am thinking most of these implements could be late 60's but more than likely early 70's.
I am going to start looking in that time frame.

Well the mystery arms have been figured out....just don't have the sears tractor to figure out the rest of it......the 725 david bradley is still with the previous owner since I did not have time to go down there over the weekend. I still thinking these were early 70's model implements. Anyway .....the cultivator had a bracket on it to hold the fertilizer hopper.....the mystery arms attach to the cultivator so you could do 2 jobs at one time...fertilize and cultivate......there is even cut outs on the bracket to match up to the holes in the fertilizer...from what I can tell this is all factory parts.......anybody seen this before??

i see all the parts as being sears, except the one large gear. The black piant on the gauge wheel says mid to late 70's. The 3pt arms look to be the heavy duty one from a 70's tractor. Never seen it set up as a combined unit, but that would be cool. You need to find out if theres is a drive gear inside the rear wheel of the tractor. None of my sears books show an attachment like this

the manual they gave me is for a 1972 sears 15hp suburban. Next time I talk to him I will get him to find out how it was hooked up to the tractor. They no longer own the tractor. I've read all the manuals he gave me and their is nothing showing the cultivator with the bracket and the hopper. thanks lauber1 good to know that it is something unique. This was a friend of mine and he was selling it for his in-laws....I think they were surprised what I offered them for all the implements and manuals.....maybe it was too much.....but the 3pt hitch adapter, seeder, 4-5 shiny new looking plates, and now this....makes the deal special and unique. As always I appreciate your expertise. Once I get the 62 manual start 725 home I am sure I am going to need help getting it back to going again.

Glad you got the 'mystery' piece figured out. Neat idea to combine operations like that. Thanks for the pics.

Did you get a large drive wheel with the stuff you bought ? The fertilizer box almost looks like what was used on my DB Tri-Trac . It is driven off the seeder sprocket on mine . I can post some pics it it would be heplful , Al

I talked to the guy that I bought it through....previous owner was not a machinist......he understood from the PO that it was all original except for the tooth gear that the PO adapted to the tractor to run this.....now even more confused.....so if the rest is original......but the tractor did not have the sprocket to run it......(note the sticker on the arms is the same as the sticker on the 3pt adapter)......must have gone to something.....Alc can you post a picture of the large wheel you are talking about....and maybe your set up.... My guy is going to go back to clarify what he understood......so will let you know if there are any changes to the info...
