I purchased a Craftsman GT 6000 garden tractor in-store 2/25/2011. I purchased over $1,100.00 worth of accessories/attachments for it online the next day. We picked everything up at the store the afternoon of 3/1/2011.
The shoddy spot welds on the hitch broke early in the afternoon of 3/4/2011, after receiving less than three full days' worth of use. I then went to ******* and purchased what we needed to repair the welds.
If you purchase this item, make sure you have access to welding equipment. You are likely to need it. Otherwise, you'll be returning your hitch for another one that is constructed just as shoddily as the one that broke.
Hitch is welded into place at factory installation. This means you can't remove it, which would be okay except for the fact that Sears makes no compatible grass bagger that will mount with hitch in place. After 2 hours on the phone with parts advisor, I was told to return the entire tractor, and get one without the accessory hitch, if I wanted to grass bag. But then of course, I couldn't plow or use other hitch components. How can Sears make such a limited application? Surely they can make a bagger that would fit to their hitch, since the tractor has a lawn mower to it! Very poor planning.

Works well. The construction is a little lightweight but it does the job it is supposed to do. It was necessary to adjust the hitch and the implement a little to get it to work properly and lift to the correct height.
The Craftsman sleeve hitch had to be slightly modified ( parts were included) for my Craftsman GT 5000. but it fit perfectly on my Toro. I thought that was odd. So I bought another for the Toro.
good quality and easy hook up. bought to use with the box scraper and my only complaint is that it does not lift it up high enough and it drags on the ground when I hit any bump. Needs better adjustment but otherwise a very easy to use attachment
