    top link for rotary cutter

    Hi

    I own a rotary cutter rc2048 from frontier that has not been used yet.
    When I look at this video, I see the top link is mounted with a pivot to allow the implement to move freely.

    I dont have that... i have a direct solid top link.
    Should I consider this kind of pivot?

    Thanks

    You pretty much need some type of loose link for the top connection on a brush hog. Then enables the rear of the mower to move up and down freely.

    Mine (Bush Hog) uses a chain for the top link connection.

    well I never noticed that (and feel idiot about it hehe)... it's time for the snow to melt so I can play and learn ;)

    Thanks for the info!

    Hate to drag this up again but I'm having a hard time finding the part I Need.


    JD 955
    Quick Hitch
    Woods Brush Hog.

    So my mower has the hinged /swing piece at the top.
    My land is nowhere near flat so this hinge is a MUST have.

    Somewhere I saw an Adapter part that will allow the mower to raise ( like driving through a ditch)
    without binding WHILE useing a quick Hitch.
    Its a bit of a pain to have to remove Q Hitch just to use Mower.

    I tried the search box and got nowhere...youtube..same story...I've seen this part and would like to see it in action if
    someone can post a link to the part and perhaps a video.

    That looks like the part I've seen in the past.
    I'm quite mechanical but yet this still makes no sense to me.

    Thank you Dave

    I'll pursue this a bit more Now that I know what "its" called and try to dig up a video.

    Thanks again
