    48" brush cutter alignment

    I have an iMatch and 48" brush cutter and having a hard time getting it adjusted correctly. I lowered the wheel (so back would be a bit higher) and after I adjust how high I want the front (an inch or two lower) and center the adjuster with the center arm of the 3pt, when I go to lift it up it doesn't raise it very high. Any suggestions?

    You don't say what sort of tractor you have but with your description and the size of the rotary cutter, I'm assuming a 1025r? I have a 1025r and a 48" rotary cutter too, and I believe what you are seeing is pretty normal. The 1025r is a "limited Cat 1" tractor, the "limited" being because of the limited lift height of the 3 point hitch.

    What type of tractor you are using would be useful, maybe put a signature in your profile so we know in the future when you ask questions.

    With that said, on my 2025R and with the 1 series I had I would shorten the top link for transport and then lengthen it back out when I went to cutting, hope this helps. Little tricks like this on limited Cat 1 tractors will get you through the day.
