Does anyone have knowledge on converting a Super A to 3 point ?

I think Worksaver may make a kit. I know there are some out there. I don't have any personal experience with them. If it were me I would rather put a fast hitch from a 100,130, or 140 on it but if you can't find fast hitch implements that may not help you. Although, you can still buy bush hogs, box blades, etc. equipped with one point fast hitch as well as the prongs to convert other implements.

I been thinking of a 3pt with a fast hitch conversion this way we can switch attachments that are still available. I found the kubota 3pt arms at burdens surplus for $17 for two.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Never thought about a three point to fast hitch conversion. Most go the other way. Not sure if you could pull it off without some major modifications.

Looks like Worksavers has the kit. So far they have not returned my e-mail.

There is a man on the YTMag site, Hugh MacKay, that has come up with a way to change the fast hitch to a three point real easy. I like his design the best of any I have seen. The tractor can be quickly be changed from three point to fast hitch and back again. You can find him on the Farmall board at ytmag.com.

That does look to be as nice a conversion as I have seen.

Worksaver never did send a reply. I found Hugh MacKay at YT and he is sending the plans and pictures to build the conversion. Sounds like a real straight up project.

Hi, I just found this post doing a image search for a 140 3 point hitch conversion. I know this is an old thread but, I would very much like to see some more pics/plans for this design. It looks very nicely done. thanks in advance.

I hope that Hugh managed to send the Dan the plans. Unfortunately Hugh passed away a little while ago.

I have what appears to be a well made conversion on an A. I don't use it and will sell. It uses a remote cylinder underneath for the lift that was powered by a belt driven pump. If you have touch control you would not need the pump. I do not know the brand. It is still on the tractor and I think it is complete. I do not know the value but will do some research. Maybe some one on the forum can help when I get photos. It will be next week.
