Husqvarna TS348XD sleeve hitch and attachment options?

I have a Husqvarna TS348XD and am currently looking for sleeve hitch and attachment options for my tractor. The attachments im interested in are a lawn aerator as well as a dethatcher. The Husqvarna sleeve hitch retails for $269 (pretty pricey)with not favorable reviews and the same less desirable reviews can be found for the attachments. What other choices do i have for a sleeve hitch that fits as well as attachments? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. : )
Thanks

My aerator and dethatcher hook directly to the back of my tractor with a hitch pin, no sleeve hitch required.

Same here. Well, my aerator and cart hooks directly. I don't have a dethatcher.

Really? What garden tractor do you have and are you using the easy hitch platform, that the aerator and dethatcher sit on?

TSC I believe still sells a pull behind unit that uses just a hitch pin. It has a rack on top to add cinder blocks for weight if needed.

First of all not a lot of photos of the rear of the tractor. At least not close enough to see. The hole in the horizontal plate at bottom of tractor is where the pin for tow behind implements hook. Just align equipment shackle and drop lynch pin in.

This is the sleeve hitch your talking about for $269.

https://www.husqvarna.com/us/accesso...tch/585607901/


There's a company called johnnyproducts.com that makes a a sleeve hitch with a linear actuator that cost more like $365.

Electric sleeve hitch upgrade

The first picture is the manual one that Husqvvarna sells. The second picture is what JohnnyProducts sells. Unforrtunately those are your only options.

The Husq. sleeve hitch looks very familiar to the one Cub and others offer, could possibly be made by the same folks dunno. I wouldn't be too concerned about the online reviews @ Husqvarna's web site, one wasn't even the tractor you have. I have a spike aerator and a few more attachments that hook to the hitch pin hole on my old Cub, gotta tell you it's a pita w/o a sleeve hitch to go across our cement drive that divides the frt. yard. Shoulda already had one and eventually will on the new one. Good luck.

Current sleeve Hitches for Both Husqvarna and Cub Cadet Garden tractors are made By Agri-Fab There are subtle difference between them The Husqvarna sleeve Hitch is very close to the Cub Cadet sleeve Hitch for the XT1 & XT2 series. The Cub Cadet XT3 series uses different Brackets to Attach the sleeve Hitch to the Tractor. Basically the Mounting frame portion of the sleeve Hitch is what differs for Cub & Husqvarna
