Easy to instal

Sears asked for me to describe their product, they even suggested an Example like: Easy to instal it only took 20 minutes. Well they could not have chosen a better example but they were off as it only took me 10 minutes to instal. This sleeve hitch is simple and fast to instal as for it's use I'll let you know, it should work out well

Works well

I had to make an adaptation that is not recommended by Sears. I have a lawn tractor, not a garden tractor. So I drilled holes for the top of the hitch to attach. Another reviewer suggested a 5/8" bolt, 3 washers, and a lock nut and that's what I did. My mower is 12 years old and so I didn't care about voiding a warranty or ruining the machine. I've pulled a box blade with it so far and it works very well. If you do this modification, understand that it is not made to work on a basic lawn tractor and will hang a little lower than the garden tractors. That said, I wouldn't change a thing I did. I am now maintaining my gravel driveway much more easily than hand tools and much more inexpensively than renting a tractor or paying someone else (I've done both).

Worth the money.

Does a fine job. Bought it for the box scraper that does an excellent job for it's size. Also put the wheel weights on which should be put on first before the sleeve hitch. There is a little more room to put the nuts on the back of the rim without the hitch in the way.
