    Default 3-Point Receiver

    Hi all,
    Seems like the 3-point receiver has been a fairly hot topic lately so I thought I would post pictures of the one I completed a couple of weeks ago. I purchased a receiver hitch at a swap meet/car show this spring just for this purpose, cost all of $10 [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]. I then cut the ends off and welded a couple of 1/2" X 3" bars on that I had made where I work (no cost!) and used 2 inch tube where the top link connects. I plan on placing a chain through the tube down to the draw bar to keep it from rising with weight on the trailer. I made the receiver reversable, 1 7/8" and 2" ball on one end, and a flat bar on the other. All I have to do is pull a pin, spin it around, and I can pull attachments that require a draw bar such as a lawn roller. Picture # 1 shows the completed project.

    Stumpman thats a great looking project. And also a practical addition to your tractor implements. You should be retailing those babies at eBay. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Stump ... rather than make any stupid guesses, I'm wondering why you incorporated threaded bolts for the control arm connections?

    Couldn't a pair of pins on each side do the job? Seems it would have a disconnect time of about 15 seconds that way with no tools required?

    Not a critique, just curious.
