Do you mean 3-point hitch?  I see a place to mount the two lower links and the top link.  

Making it lift...that's another story.  I have seen someone successfully use a power steering pump to actuate a hydraulic cylinder.  Where to mount it...I have no idea lol.  Have you found any diagram or sales brochure on implements?

the original one was electric, you can see the plug on the back of the tractor. I just need to get a class II receiver mounted up for what I need.

Oh you just need a 2" receiver and you already have fabrication equipment, well enough said. So you could weld up a 3 point mount similar to this simple one I made. Apparently the image server is looking for my e-mail and password which I don't have so I can't upload images ATM, but it's very similar to something you can buy or see people weld up on youtube.

Instead of having 3 link bars that can pivot like a standard 3 point hitch. You could weld 3 rigid links to the receiver that pin right in place with the 3 link mounts on your tractor. This requires careful measuring but the actual fabrication and welding parts are really simple.

Finally done and tested...hitch works great, the gilson does not have the weight my cub cadet has, so it will wheelie you over backwards if you try to go to fast towing the trailer... The trailer weighs 1200+ pounds. Anyway worked out good.

Great work.   If you should mod it in the future, lower and closer to the axle will give you a little more stability. (no wheelies)  The Gilsonator!!!! - Page 2 2731072446

Thanks, I had to, well wanted to mount this one up where it is because there is no "frame" down low just the brackets that mount the transaxle.  You can see where the frame stops just below my hitch side plate.

It makes it a similar bumper height to my truck so I dont have to have multiple drop hitches etc.

Sweet homemade receiver!! Looks like it should come in quite handy.
