I did not think to look in the manuals section. Thanks for reminding me there is such a section on here lol.

I don't think the dimensions are carved in stone. There can be a big difference in the size of tractors and implements using the cat o size. The original 18" suggestion was definitely too large though. A manufacturer may have optimized the hitch to mate with their own or say Brinly attachments. An adjustable top link bracket on the implement or the tractor would help accommodate a range of attachments.

Most cell phones have an SAE to metric convertion feature in the tools menu.


Guess I'll have to get one of those. My son said he could add me on to his plan for $15 a month. I don't need all that texting and extra stuff. Just the ability to call folks. Thanks, Gibby!

Casey I was just wondering why you wouldn't want the top link adjustable ? Even different mounting points for the top link . You never know what you'll hook up to you tractor , Al

Al, I actually do know what I am hooking up and how. I am keeping the sleeve hitch for all the implements I currently own, then the 3 point stuff I plan to build will be on an adapter I create.
