“Sleeve Hitch” For Deere Square Fender Tractors
Evan Hallgarth recently sent FARM SHOW photos of a new “sleeve hitch” he designed for old Deere garden tractors equipped with square fenders. The tractors were built from 1968 to 1980.
  The hitch is designed for Deere 110, 112, 120, and 140 models, as well as 200 and some 300 series models. It bolts onto the rear part of the tractor frame and comes with spring-loaded locking pins. No tools are required.
  According to Hallgarth, many people who own these tractor models want to use them with single bottom moldboards at plowing shows. Unfortunately, they can’t always find the hitches they need.
  “At one time Deere made sleeve hitches for single bottom moldboard plows, but they stopped making them when they stopped making square fender tractors,” says Hallgarth. “My hitch is a copy of the Deere model, and it can also be used with other attachments including small disks and one-row cultivators. Brinly-Hardy makes all 3 of these products, and I sell them. My hitches are being sold by Hapco Inc., a company which supplies Deere lawn and garden tractor parts. I actually sell single bottom plows, discs, and one-row cultivators made by Brinly-Hardy.”
   Hallgarth says he also plans to build sleeve hitches for Deere 110 and 112 round fender tractors and also for Deere 400 models.
