Am "Muddlin'" this around in my head. Originally sent this as a reply to another post but can't find it... I have a GT5000 Craftsman with a sleeve hitch. I haven't found a plow yet locally with the sleeve, but walked away from a very nice $40.00 Cat 0 Plow last year. Kicking myself since. Has anyone ever had success with something like this: http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii232/AMSTEADMAN/Sleeve%20Hitch/3pointadapt.jpg
I am planning to leave the manual sleeve lift arm & etc there and use that assembly to lift the 3 pt. arms. Thanks - Alan
PS any ideas where to put the "Third Point"?

Your hitch and plow probably needs to be able to float when the plow is lowered. Hal

Instead of the rigid adjustments, would chain work better?... The lift arm for the sleeve hitch does "float" when in the down position.

You can try a chain. That 24 inch rod has a 90 degree bend in it so you would need to add about 1-1/2" and make the bend at 24 inches. Hal

www.weekendfreedommachines.com and look around, I am sure you could trade yours for a 3 point and get a little change to boot.
