Well that just isn't fair! If people are trying to get $100 for the original style adapter, your ought to be worth $150 since it is the modern upgrade! hahahahaha. :D :lol:

Very nice modification Shane!

Thanks Chase, got the idea from my brother. I have one of the originals on the other hitch and have yet to use it.

Odd man out here!!!! LOL!!!!---I tried to install one on one of my cubs, AND ended up junking the idea!!! ---No clearance under the hitch for plants.--the hitch has to come off to use the cultivator, ---single point tends to twist and bend awfully easy.
In my case the fast hitch don't work!--Got a 560 that came with one on it and that was the first thing that came off it!--replaced with 3-pt also!
BUT!!! I did drag the top part out of the junk and used it to make a nice 3-pt. for the tractor!--I have a bunch of equipment to fit the 3-pt. and still have a solid drawbar, IF ever needed!
3pt is much more versitile , BUT, you guys love the fast hitches, and I respect that!! LOL!!! thanks; sonny

For cultivating, where you want to raise the front as high as it will go, is the early or later style better? From the photos from the manual, it looks like the later one will raise the bar higher out of the way, plus you don’t have the lever linkage sticking down either.

Kinda looking. Not seriously looking, ‘cause I have 2-3 projects going on at once (money is a object for sure right now!) but keeping eyes open for a “deal!” 8)

Not the precision work that Shane Nelson does but this is the way the PO solved the "hitch" problem on this tractor:
