    I think (80% anyways,,,) that those two long bars that connect to the back of the mower need to be replaced by chains,,,

    or,,

    they need to be replaced by bars with a pivot,,,

    Somehow, the rear of the mower needs the capability to angle up on various terrain,,

    Yes... I understand what your saying, but wouldnít it come out of the hook on the imatch once you lowered it to cut? I may be completely wrong ?

    Thatís what the swing piece that I got the pin thru does... it allows it to pivot

    It looks like you have the lower attachment hooks connected to the mower, if that is so, then the mower isnít quick hitch compatible. You may have to remove the QH and connect directly without the hitch.

    Without seeing how those flat bars attach at the back end, its hard to say. I have a 5ft rotary of unknown make and model, and it looks almost identical to his pics, but it pivots. It's buried under a foot of snow right now, or i'd snap a pic.

    That is very odd. Not sure what is going on there.
    What make and model is the mower?
    Can you take a few more pics just a little farther back, so we can get a broader view?
