    Does anybody know of a cheap source to get a sleeve hitch for a Craftsman Lawn Tractor?

    That maybe a hard find. As sleeve hitches are not designed for LT's. They are designed for GT's.

    Go to a auto parts store and get one made to bolt to a bumper that's what I did on my craftsman.

    A sleeve hitch for a small tractor is a lifting hitch.

    I never heard of a lifting sleeve hitch. When I read your trend I thought of a automotive style hitch and it looks like I wasn't alone. This may be a very dumb question but...So just what is a Sleeve hitch?. Do you use it to lift the tractor or does it lift attachments? OK I looked them up on the net

    Sears has this one for advertised for $139.

    I have not made up my mind whether to get one or not. If I get the tow behind straw rake I won't need that hitch. I might get some garden implements as well. Still trying to make up my mind on all of that.

    You've found out that even the basic ones are not cheap. I got very lucky. One night the family and I was in Lowe's, and I was wandering around aimlessly in the lawn and garden section. I happened to look up and they had clearanced out their sleeve hitches for $50. Looking back, I wish I had bought all three of them.

    That was a bargain.
