I have some Sears implements (4 of them) and I thought that they were 3-point cat 0, but it appears to be smaller and it won't work on my 3-point. Can anyone help me out with what they are? I bought them last year and I finally tried to hook them up without any success.

You need to join MTF and GT Talk so you can offer them on the Craftsman forum.

The marketing geniuses at Sears decided to make their hitch and attachments proprietary to prevent buyers of their GT's from sourcing used attachments that are true CAT 0 variety. In my opinion... a stupid move. If someone owned a GT with a CAT 0 hitch and a bunch of attachments, he would be far less likely to buy a Craftsman GT because he would have to buy all new attachments and take a loss on what he had.

However, you should have no problem selling what you have for good money because that brand has a strong following.

Don't know if you have the equipment, but altering the equipment to work on cat 0 does not look to be all that bad except for the harrow. Even that can be changed up to cat 0. Setting up the plow to work correctly may take a bit of patience, but it's doable.

I agree that it is possible to convert these implements to true CAT 0 style but why would you bother? As I understand it, there is a ready market out there for these, just the way they are and frankly, not one of them impress me all that much anyway.

If you have a Case GT with a 3 pt hitch, then a set of Brinly double disc harrows is far more useful than that toy from Sears. The same holds true with the turning plow. I don't see any adjustments on that one, like you do on a Brinly.

I'd sell off all of that iron for as much as it would bring and then keep my eye open for items that were for 3 pt operation when they left the factory.
