Never seen one but I could build one pretty easy but I can also do a 3 point swap from a snap coupler pretty easy. I have done the 3 point set ups 3 plus times on the WD/WD45/D-17. The biggest cost is the 2-3 point arms

I've considered converting to 3 point but have 2 different D17s and just thought a snap coupler spear would be easier than two conversions or switching one back and forth. Not a crucial matter but would free up the bigger tractor for other things.

Big problem with the snap coupler set up and building one is the hook up under the tractor. As I said I could do it if I had the snap parts as in the part that snaps into the lift arms

Get an old SC toolbar, and weld a spear or 2 to it. I put a spear on the top of an old skidloader manure bucket. At the time I made it, Agrisupply.com had the cheapest Buhler spear and socket, I think it was $29 for the spear, and $12 for the socket, plus reasonable shipping.

I bought a old snap coupler plow at a farm sale for 13 dollars and made a bale carrier out of it.
