Looking at a J22 sleeve hitch for 200 series tractors.Anyone find many uses for this hitch on the smaller wheeled units?Just wondering if I should add it to my collection to possibly use on my 220 or 222?Have one now on 446 with tiller.Any thoughts?Thanks,Kevin

I've got one on my 222, I use it for everything, tiller, brinley sleeve hitch cultivator, agrifab sleeve hitch disc, home made super duty grader blade. The 200 series with a sleeve hitch will do pretty much everything the 400 series will. You have a little less clearance when cultivating over the top of plants but I try get Preen down before the plants get that tall anyhow.

Thanks for the reply.Was thinking that maybe nobody out there ever heard of a J22 hitch,from lack of responses!!!I went ahead and bought it anyways-$80.00 -figured I couldnt go wrong for that much.It looks as though it may have the longer link that I may need for my 446 sleeve that I picked up last month.

There are several variations on the sleeve hitches that deal with the differences in frame length. Originally, all of the sleeve hitches were the same (except for the length differences between a 200 series and 400 series models) and used the same lift link length. When Ingersoll lengthened the frame of the 400 series tractors by 2" that required a 2" longer lift link. The angle between the sleeve hitch side rails and the arm where the lift link is attached was 102 degrees for the earlier hitches. At some point Ingersoll apparently figured out that by increasing that angle to 105 degrees on the 400 series hitches they could use the same lift link on the longer frame tractors. So...if you are fitting up a used hitch of unknown age and need a lift link you should take some measurements to see what exactly you need.
