    Rate of drop

    So I sometimes breeze through YouTube and watch video's of tractor stuff, surprised I know, but it drives me nuts when I see so many people slamming implements to ground. Why is that so many people don't utilize the ROD valve. I adjust mine with each different implement I put on, am I just different, what does everyone else do?

    I'm with ya...

    I would like to think that many may not know that it's even a "thing". I change the ROD depending on the implement being used at the time; e.g. the snow blower weights a ton, so it get's a slower drop rat than the fertilizer spreader that empty, weighs next to nothing.

    I admit I don't adjust it on my 1025r. I played with once or twice and didn't see a huge change in the drop rate. Maybe I just didn't turn it enough?

    Well, I can tell you on my 2025 that with the heavier implements ( like a tiller) I barely open it, but if I left it there with my box blade or chisel plows on I can eat a sandwich waiting for them to finally make contact with the ground.

    I adjusted mine 7 years ago when I first got it and only had the rear blower. Now with a BB and ballast box, I don't think to change it as the ballast stays up and the bb is light enough its not an issue. Plus, I just use the handle to lower any implement at an acceptable rate.

    I think part of an issue like this is about reading the owner’s manual. I am just amazed at what questions get asked around here which are plainly in the manual. I want to so badly say RTFM but bite my tongue.

    And if/when I do say something about the manual a lot of these people will admit to not reading it. You just bought a $20k machine and you don’t even read the manual?

    Whenever I buy anything - even something for $50 - I download the manual and read through it so I am somewhat familiar with it before it even arrives. Then will go through it again with it in front of me to check out all the features.

    Same thing happens on pickup forums.

    I'm game to think you are both right.

    The Dealer's Customer Orientation should cover this, and all of the other basic points. The dealer should also point out to the customer were to find this material(and other relevant operation) in the manual.

    My neighbor is a great guy and he picked up a nice older 4 something (looks very similar to a 2023). He bought a land pride box blade and I watched him keep trying to feather the three point and rocking and rolling the tractor so I showed him the rod knob and explained its function but he never did adjust it. Mechanically savvy otherwise, can't understand the reluctance?
