Gents,

After noting(perhaps even whining) recently that large frames rarely come up for sale in this area, we had 2 HT20s and two Ht23s come up for sale with in about 6 weeks. I was able to snag one of the Ht23s at a price below my threshold of pain. It is in reasonable shape for the age and has not been beat to death. The linkages are fairly tight without a lot of slop. I am still looking it over and researching what I can find on it and large frames in general.

From what I am understanding, I will need a 3 point hitch in order to use some attachments such as a Brinley plow, and some attachments that I think I would like to make. I missed my opportunity to pick up a 3 point recently off of an Ht20.

Does anyone have sketches for a 3 point that I can use to build from? Or is there anyone on here in Eastern Washington that has one I can measure?

I would like to put one on the 1250 I picked up, but I see that the frame does not extend back like on the Ht23. How does the 3 point attach onto a 1250?

Thanks,

Doug

Hi Doug.
Did you pick up that ht23 I saw pop up on CL last weekend in Spokane? It was gone in a half day. That one looked like a decent tractor at a great price - under $500 for an HT. You'll have to post some pics!
The HTs do use a different hitch than the earlier large frames. I was just recently in your shoes, looking for a hitch. One came up last week on CL here on the Portland area for me. I have seen a thread on one of the sister forums where someone posted CAD drawings of the HT 3 point hitch. I'll see if I can find it again and link it for you.
If you're looking for a 1250 hitch, member steevo has one for sale in the Boise area. But it's part of a package deal- you have to take his 1250 and various parts with it. He's offering a sweet deal if you want a hitch plus a parts tractor.
