Has anyone on here done this? If so, Was it worth the effort/cost? How did it work out for you?

I bought the cheapest one I could find several years ago. After several repairs and rebuilds, I got it right. Believe it or not, I hauled around a light 5' bush hog for several years. That's not necessary any more. But I now have a light landscape rake which works great on it. And, I just switched my belly mower from my B to the C, and used cables and pulleys off the three point to raise the mower. I have some chains to hold the mower up so I can use the rake on the three point while the mower is still attached.

I built one years ago on my C and it does ok. Used the plow lift to then make it into a 3 point

bought two lower arms for a 9N at the farm store. Built a frame between the final drive 5/8 inch bolts and put both arms onto this frame. Use the rock shaft upper arms to raise the 9N arms.

I got a 52 B that had a cheap aftermarket 3 pt on it, that was rated at 250 lbs.That rating seemed useless to me , so I bought 2 ford arms, replaced the rockshaft, with a larger diameter shaft, replaced the cylinder, with a 3"x8" cylinder, that was rated for 3000 psi. In later yrs I put a front pump on it, and went to double acting cylinders, and a control valve on the fender. I now haul large round bales, out of the barn, and feed cows with a 3pt hay spear. WARNING use enough weight on the front! I carry 200 lbs of steel weight, and both front tires are loaded with calcium.

Those tractors don't have much front end weight as it is. Hanging an implement on teh back could get dicey.
