I have all but the sleeve mounting bits, just wondering if 1/2 plate will be too thick and mess up the location of the vertical 5/8 I'd tube?

Reason I'm playing with a sleeve hitch , is Ijust picked up a sleeve hitched Brinly bottom plow for cheap moneys and wanted to give it a try first. If it doesnt work good I'll convert it to 3 point.
I have a question for all the guys that have tried, or are presently plowing with a double bottom garden tractor plow, does it pull easier or not? Some of my old tractor manuals say it can pull up to 66% easier?? Hummm really?

Chief, how wide is your rear wheel base? Might be as easy as widening the axles or swapping the wheels offset?

I think it's supposed to be 3.5" . I measured mine last night and that was what I came up with.

Well I got it figured out and whipped one out so I could try out my newly acquired plow, it works AWSOME, I'll post a video later for you folks.

I plowed up the rest of my little garden at home yesterday and I am extremely pleased at how incredibly AWSOME that sleeve plow works behind my LGT125 !! It pulls beautifully and kicks up easy when snagging stone, I just back up and roll the nugget up to the surface. I want to find another one now to build a 2 bottom unit and see how that will do?
