I found an add on 3 point hitch for a Farmall. I'd plan on putting it on my H or Super M or getting a third tractor for it. It doesn't have a model but looks like the Saginaw but only has one cylinder. The arms aren't perfectly straight, the cylinder doesn't look perfect but is plumbed for 2-way hydraulics. It's about 2 hours away, but pretty cheap. Is it worth it? I don't have pics but I am pretty sure it'd fit. Thanks

I would go for it.A single cylinder is just finr if you dont plan on carrying a heavy planter ,big sprayer.or heavyplow.For bladeing,brushhogging,other 'light' jobs-no problem.You seem to be a real 'handy' guy,if it needs a little tweaking,I;m sure you can easily fix it.The biggest problem with theos single cyl 3 points is the 2"rockshaft is too small,it twists easily.BTW,On my shopmade 3 point,the rockshaft is 2 1/2" square(the ends are machined round to accept a bushing).My SM 3pt only has one cylinder,will lift more than the frontend will hold down with a 3 1/2" cyl..The mag pump puts out 1200psi.Good luck and enjoy your 'new, 3 point!

If you don't plan on doing any heavy lifting or abusive work with it, one cylinder is fine.

A second cylinder can usually be added pretty easily by someone with some basic fabrication skills if you really feel it is necessary.

What kind of work do you envision for this 3pt? That will tell you if it's worth it or not.
This is worth exactly what you paid for it, but IMHO the add-on hitches do not work well for moldboard plowing. Mostly because they don't have draft control, which makes keeping the plow at a consistent depth a manual process. Tough to do a good job of plowing.

Don't plan on plowing. Mainly back blading, landscape raking and what ever other fun 3 point hitch attachments I come across. Thanks guys!

I have plowed quite a bit with a 2 bottom and 3 bottom mounted rollover plow on a Super M.I simply put stop collars on the cylinder.holds the plow at a consistant depht all day...The 'ole super' just "walked the dog".Another benefit is you dont have wheel slippage or need to add wts.'Suction' and the weight of the plow takes care of all that.

I have a dual cylinder hitch on the H and it has been handy while I've had it, which has only been a few months. I'm selling the H now that the 300 is in working order and I'd be happy to sell the hitch off it separately since I still have the drawbar to put back on. Zach

The Saginaw hitch mfg'd for the Super C has one cylinder.

My 3-point was a weak one, and afteryears of heavy use and plowing and lifting and etc., the cylinder-arm (left one) was higher than the right non-cylinder one. The center round-bar had twisted a bit, and the right-hand arm had bent down a little bit. Had to have it rebuilt, and that was pricey. HOWEVER, a 3-point will absolutely be worth it. Makes a Farmall into a real work tractor.
