Converting 3 pnt bush hog to fit super a

Postby BullDAWG » Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:41 pm

A buddy of mine said back in the day he saw many bush hogs converted to work on an A or super A. My question is max size (ie 4 ft, 5 or 6 ft) and pics of it if anyone has done this or seen em n took pics. Thanks

I've seen pull type versions that were basically three point hitch models with the hitch removed and a tongue added. It also had two tail wheels on each corner instead of one in the middle.

That would work too, but my friend was describing straight bars welded on going to where the draw bar bolts on and actually able to use rear lift to pick up the bush hog. But if I can't figure out how that's done I may try the two wheel make it a pull type hooked to the draw bar.

Maybe something like this? It's a disk on a Cub but same principle I think:

Also from your original question I wouldn't go wider than a 4' bush hog.

If you can find a 1 point fast hitch, that would be the ticket. They make the tractor much more useful with implements like that.
