Just want to share with you guys some pictures of my completed project. It is a sleeve hitch with electric winch. I have it on my CUB 1000 but plan will fit on any cubs. I may sell some kits minus the winch if people are interested. The winch is a $40 harbor freight one but I am impressed with the quality so far. The control pad is located on the fender for now.

Interesting. I'm curious have you used any implements with it yet? If so, is there any "bounce" since the cable is not rigid?

With weight on the implement there is no bounce, more of a float. Wheel Horse uses a cable for there lift.

I like ur idea. I've been thinking about doing that to my Wheel Horse. Allis Chalmers And Simplicity also use a cable for the rear lift.

Looks good.One thing nice,using a winch with a sleeve hitch,is that you can raise the impliments way up high which is good for loading the rig on a trailer.

That is the same winch I use on mine. It has plenty of lifting power. The only problem I have had with mine is when I first started using it, my battery got weak after lifting my plow after about an hour of use. I upgraded to a better battery with higher amps and have not had any problems since.
When using standard implements I run a single line lift but for my heavier rototiller, it takes a doubled line.

Yes. I needed more traction than my garden tractor had but in a small package to pull my trail mower. An ATV was just too fast so this is what I came up with. Lots of spare time and a couple used up riding mowers and this was the result.

Super idea with the winch. I will go to harbor freight tomorrow and buy one. Mine uses a screw jack to lift it but can not lift the tiller.:praying:
