I like the old Sears tractors with 3 point hitches and attachments they sold back in the late 1960's and 1970's. The new garden tractors have cheap frames that feel like they will turn into a cork screw if you attempt to do something the old tractors would do. They lowered the ground clearance on the sleeve hitch so you can't cultivate much at all without scalping the crops. Even the old tractors needed more ground clearance. The handle is cheap tubing that is in danger of being snagged on something. I have heard several of the sleeve hitches have broken. The impression I have is the designers trimmed all of the cost out and left customers with a tool they can't get much use of.

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

Designed for Garden Tractor not Lawn Tractor. Assembled easily. No fuss, must, dust or crust when working a box scraper over 200 yards of gravel. I recommend.
