Well, after mowing the lawn today, I got out the cutters, welder, and set to work!! I started out with a front mule drive and cut the pulleys off it, then welded a hitch tube in it.

I just need to add some safety chain loops on to it.

For my rear receiver hitch i used a Reese "bumper mount receiver" hitch, welded some 5/8" bar underneath it, and welded a support on it for the center link on my 3pt.

I was gonna use my receiver drop with my ball on it from my jimmy but it had a six inch drop, so it would not be that great. I opted to mount my spare ball on the hitch itself.

looks like it is trun upside down
It is actaully a right side link- the 3point had 2 rights and no left, so i need to make one, or heat it up and bend it the other way.

Well, the rear hitch works great except when i put a load of wood in my 4x8 trailer, the front tires came off the ground when i pulled away- i guess i need my front wheel weights after all Hugh :)

Just take off slow. Like low gear slow. With the ball so far behind the tractor and so high you could do a flip if the load was heavy.

Looks good though

Here's what I use to tote my trailer around. My tractors aren't as complex so neither are my hitches.

The one on the left is fabricated from 6" channel and the other from truck air bag brackets.
