 2-pt. to 3-pt. conversion?

Has anyone successfully converted a Yanmar 2-point hitch tiller to 3-point hitch configuration? I have a Yanmar 1106RS tiller that came with the 2-pt. (Japanese-style) hitch, I'd like to convert it to a 3-pt. hitch for ease of swapping implements. Any info/help would be appreciated. Thanks!

 2-pt. to 3-pt. conversion?

No real help here but it's an interesting question and I might learn something from a discussion.

My impression of semi-mounted plows is that they depend on wheels for leveling and that the hitch raises or lowers the front of the plow. I don't know how the tiller mounts and what maintains the front to back level.

With 3ph implements, the top-link keeps maintains the implement's front to back level irrespective of the hitch position. When using a ground-engaging implement, the draft rotates the implement on its lower link pins and places compression on the top-link.

It would tempting to think that a conversion might consist of simply removing any wheels, skids or whatever the tiller floats on and welding on a top-link bracket. If that's the basic idea, a good question might be whether the tiller frame is designed to withstand the forces generated by top-link compression. Another question might be whether the tractor's top-link bracket is designed to withstand the compression a tiller would generate.

Most of the tillers have provisions for converting. You need to take a look at a Japan three point hitch tiller. The major difference is a top link provision. It can be done. However, methinks that your tiller may be one of those small ones that aren't designed to accomodate the abilities of the larger ones. In this case, having a welder as a best friend helps or knowing how to run one nets the same effect.
