Do you have an opinion on which one is best?

No idea but I'm getting the cheaper one for two reasons. 1) the price 2) it's not on ebay

On a second look of the ebay kit only one arm is adjustable and they are flat iron. The kit I posted has both arms with the screw adjusts.

The ebay kit is also very much like the home made one mine has, which I do not like. The way it handles when attached to something is not too stiff and allows for a lot of sway.

I notice the one on ebay has an adjusting handle that looks like you can turn from the seat. Is that a good feature? The other one looks like each lift has an adjustment.

Adjustment on both arms is redundant. It is only needed on one side to facilitate level adjustment or offset. The one in the drawing is hard to judge. I would much rather see a picture of it but it looks like it should do the job and be easy to adjust.

The one in the line drawing is a Worksaver.

I like the redundancy. A few times I had a 3 point hitch in a position I needed an adjustment on both sides. It's a needed feature for some situations. Mine has a crank and that thing has gouged me to the point it has broke skin. It will get me from behind when driving the tractor and has made me bleed a couple times on my right back side. I do not like that crank at all. :shock:

I also like the angled ends of the arms that the other one lacks.

Another question on the SA 3 pt. conversion: With the offset PTO, is there any problem using 3 pt. equipment? Seems like the PTO shaft might interfere with the lift brackets on the equipment.

The only implement problem is if it is PTO driven. I found out the hard way.

What happened?

PTO driven tiller. The angle of the drive-shaft is to steep. It does work but has excessive vibration. Something is going to break soon.

Dan,
have you ever tied to use another 3 pt. attachment like a post hole digger or shredder?
