    Default How do I attach this to a Ford 8N 3 point?

    I bought this cultivator and the guy said it was 3 point. Once I got it home, I am scratching my head wondering how to hook it up. I feel stupid! ;-)

    I'd turn the chisels around and pull it 'backwards'.
    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...

    Well, it doesn't have two lift pins for the lower arms so it won't work the way it is. No obvious point to hook up the top link either.

    Here is a wild guess. New lift pins go in the two tall vertical supports on the top of the implement. Then the "drawbar" is stood upright and hooks to the top link (that would require the drawbar attachment point to be swiveled). Ok...I said it would be wild.

    That looks like some sort of cultivator part and not a 3PT unit. No way to hook up as it is.

    It will work fine---just use it as a pull-type and call it good. It a nice cultivator, just not 3-pt hitch and that's OK.

    Tow it with this cross drawbar that attaches to the lower lift arms of your 3pt hitch

    It would take most any 'backyard welder' about one hour to convert that to 3pt. compatible.

    Weld or bolt this to it and your done: http://www.ruralking.com/king-kutter...-mover-tm.html

    Yep, that's exactly what I was a thinking. Then you'd have a post for the Build-it-Yourself forum. Show some before and after pictures of it on your tractor, ready made post for the Customization forum. Mark
