    3 Point Hitch sway (L to R)

    Just wanted to ask is it better to have the 3 point rigid or should it be adjusted to have some sway left to right and vice versa


    Thanks

    It should be fairly tight, like maybe only 1/4" or sway or less. Just be sure it's not binding fully lowered or raised.

    It should depend on the implement in use. Like Kenny said, default is tight, but the owners manuals will say how loose or tight an implement should. Take for instance, my tiller is pretty tight while my RFM is loose so it can move around on uneven ground while mowing.
