I have a fast hitch to 3 point hitch converter. No markings but I'm sure someone could make it.

I had to take the heavy gauge wheels off the york rake to lighten it up. Works good now but still should put the front wheel weights on. When it's dragging it's ok but when you raise it up it's like power steering, a little light in the front. I sat down to rest and my wife sez I need to go on a diet.

Also want to thank Denny for pointing out the bar on my fast hitch was upside down. EZ fix and gained a little over an inch on the up side.

Tell the wife it's not you.... a Lo Boy with a fast hitch mounted implement will easily do wheelies! The good thing is they are not too high and the implement serves as a wheelie bar.

Two sets of front weights are still a bit light. You may want to poke around for a cheaper option, like plastic covered cement ones for a Cadet, JD etc (same bolt pattern) but be sure there is space for the hub cap. My two sets of weights worked well as 'wall feelers' in the 'ditches' at Ft Adams.

I was lying awake last night, trying to think of a good way to build an adapter for my fast hitch. Then I found this, almost exactly what I came up with! Would you mind maybe taking down a few measurements for me? This looks like a great "winter project...."

You are not the first to ask in the last few days. I will get some measurements posted. As noted in the picture, I would shorten the horizontal piece as much as possible. There is no need for it to be that long. The cross bar is no where near the tires and you'll still have room for a top adjustable link. Secondly, I would gusset the cross bar to the piece it is welded to. I've repaired mine unit once and will weld gussets this winter.

Folks be careful with those fast hitch 3 point conversions A cub nor a 140 are designed for using them too much weight at the back.

I agree with David. I put a larger cultivator on this unit. Because of the design, the implement is much further back than normal plus, it was a bit heavy. The tractor was able to pick it up but when I went up a grade I scared myself half to death. The only thing that kept me from going over was the cultivator itself. Lighter items is all that it's safe for. Many Cat 1 3 point hitch implements are way too heavy!

Agree. We have an IH 2-pt to 3-pt adapter for the 230 and it works but sets stuff too far back behind the rear wheels. A 110 gallon sprayer full of water makes for a WILD ride if you don't have the cultivator frames mounted on it! I have done it but you pretty much drive it with the brakes......

Main thing I want it for is real light stuff--a boom pole, maybe a box blade or landscape rake. And mainly so I can tinker with building it!

I think this project may be a "go." I found a piece of square bar that came with some parts I bought from Dale Shaw last spring, that I think will be perfect for the cross bar. I already have an Agri-Supply fast hitch point. Stay tuned....
