sears 3 pt hitch 12v actuator
I like to make my tractor user friendly , so I converted the 3pt hitch to a dc actuated hitch
3 point hitch
I snapped some pics as I was fabricating a 3 point hitch hitch for my newest rebuild a 420 John Deere L&G tractor. I want to pull a 10 or 12 inch plow and need this hitch to do so. All hot rolled steel, 1/2" lower brackets and lower lift arms. 3/8" yokes and lifting brackets. 1/4" center lift are. I used the stock rock shaft for the 3pt lifting arms.
electric 3 point
This is a Sears Electric three point hitch that I made. It has 2 electric actuators on it, with floating side links.
Ariens Tractor Hitch Cat. 0 3 pt. home made rear hitch
I made this hitch from some heavy duty scrap angle iron. My son welded it up. The entire project took about three hours. The hardest part was cutting the thick anhle iron. Ariens 1976 16 HP hydrostatic tractor. Ariens S 16 HP with a powerful Kohler cast iron 16hp gas engine. Hydrostatic drive, no gears to shift, it has a mid, front and rear pto with a class zero 3 point hitch. The rear PTO is shaft, gear driven. It weighs about 900 pounds. It comes with wheel weights, turf tires on front and rear, a 48 inch shaft drive mower deck, 3 foot 3 point hitch rototiller, snow/dirt blade and chains. The snow blade and chains were never used. I have the original packing slip and shipping sticker. This machine is a rare find. It was stored in a barn for over 15 years. Other then old gas in the tank, it started right -up. There is zero no smoke, I think the engine has under 500 hrs on it. Ariens was the in leader in rototiller technology. This tractor will out live you. I re-painted the rototller, but the rest of the tractor just has some minor surface rust. I replaced the battery and ALL the belts, new hydro filter and oil. I repacked all the grease for the gear boxes on shaft drives for the rototiller and mower deck. Lights are also new, back light are original. This nice part about the tractor is it was never worked on, all the wires and nuts and bolts are original. The hydraulic control lever has Lift, Down, Hold and Float!
