There are a couple of prototypes around. As far as I know they have not gone into production yet.

Make one!----not hard to do just takes some time and ya gotta get your hands dirty doing it! lol!
I dont think it would be very stable.---might add some extra iron.
I ditched some of the fast hitch and made a REAL 3-point out of mine by adding brackets!---You dont need to remove all of the fast hitch, just the middle part that drags on the ground,--then tie the goofy bar in front up out of the way.---then add bottom arms and clamp top link adapter onto the rockshaft! works like a champ! I then got rid of the goofy bar all together and went to 3-pt only,(beats the heck out of that pita "fast hitch") ! thanks; sonny

Tractordad, here's a pic of one borrowed from an old post borrowed from Ralph's famous "FLAMEY", to give you some ideas when you make one :D

Just make sure when you make one, to install plenty of different adjustment options. As with most things made today, it's hard to buy anything the same, a different engineer for every brand means different heights/widths/etc. They all have a better idea :D :D

Here are a couple pics of my 3ph fast hitch to single point fast hitch. I used a slightly different approach then Rick but we both accomplish the same thing. I had this as Cecils two years ago. I used a fast hitch tool bar. Someone cut it up and put spring tooths on it. So I took and cut all of that off and saved the point and made my conversion out of it. (don't worry Gary B it wasn't pretty as a has been toolbar so I made it into one that could be used for just about everything else that I needed.) The good thing about using 1 1/4" square stock is that you can use the same attachments that you would use on your 144 cults. Depending on the wedge you might have to add a little bead of weld.

When I first built this I set up the spacing so that I can use dad's 7' scraper blade and 6' rock rake. But I can only use this on the Cub with the hydraulic cylinder lift not TC as that won't do it. So now all I do is back up and raise the tool bar and the pins snap in without getting off of the tractor. Once that is on I get off and pin in the third pin and off I go. Pretty slick.

I'm not making anymore at this time either. In case you're wondering why all the holes and the extra brkts on the lower holders on the FLAMEY version. It'll work on both Fcub and lo-boy. Just flip the brkts and adjust accordingly.
