I think you did well it looks like it's in really good shape.

Sorry I cant put a value on it but around here I believe that would be a fair price.

I did see a person on CL selling a Simplicity sleeve hitch but they didn't know what model it was for, you can put a want ad up for what you're looking for in the for sale/wanted section of the forum, who knows you just may luck out.

Try E-Bay or you're local CL you may get one fairly reasonable.

Yeah, you paid a very fair price for that machine. Any 7100 series with hydrostat and hydraulic lift would probably list for $800+ here. I routinely see them for $1200 with a couple common attachments. That is a great machine!

The plow is not Simplicity, and I'd be interested to see how the PO rigged up the hitching for it. Almost looks like it lifts from the rear, and pivots at the axle?

The tractor doesn't look like it has a rear lift. There are sleeve hitches on ebay frequently. Are you referring to an actual sleeve hitch, for something like a bottom plow, or are you referring to the rear lift bracket? I've seen the rear lifts referred to as 'sleeve hitches', but that is a mosconception.

Here's the rear lift bracket...you'd need a cable kit for the rear lift to work as well

You did very well on that. I have a 7117H and enjoy using it.
tillers hitch right up to the rear and the belting runs off a rear mule drive from the pto. Most other attachments require a sleeve hitch. I built my own sleeve hitch from factory spec prints. Good luck with it and have fun
