    I thought about this idea. I have a lot of hills and none of my land is what you would call level. Problem is, most of the time I want my implement level in relationship to the tractor. You would have to have a level on the tractor AND the implement. Just seems like a hassle. Now, if you worked level land, it would work awesome .

    That's the nice thing about a quick hitch. Once it is installed and leveled H-V with the top-link and adjustable side-link it is forever level with the tractor unless you move something. It's only a hydraulic top link (or side link) that makes frequent readjustments necessary.

    So you guys don't get a feel for where your implement is in relation to your tractor?? It just does not seem like that big of a deal to me. Maybe that comes with 1000s of hours of experience? I just don't remember it ever being an issue for me, but then I can hardly remember back that far anymore.

    Brian, I am very new to tractors. You are probably right, after I get some experience under my belt, I could probably eyeball it close enough for any use. Top link suppose to be here tomorrow. I’ll let you know when I receive it.

    Mr jgayman stole the level idea from me. I have exactly the same setup, used it for a few times, and no longer pay them any attention at all. It’s much better to pay retention to the implement and the tractor than what the level is telling you. The tops of most box blades and other earth shaping equipment is level with the bottom and cutting edges. That and watching what it’s doing is really all you need. Sometimes too much information just slows you down.

    It takes a bunch of seat time to be able to grade, good operators have a 'feel' and the coordination of eye/hand. I had a Komatsu D39P dozer (20,000 pound class) and I was a terrible operator trying to grade with it. I never got the hang of it after 50 hours. I was done with the dozer and sold it to a family member for his ranch.
