    What's the heaviest implement you have lifted with a 4066r

    My cousin has a new 4066r and saw a used MX10 rotary cutter. It's a 3-point hitch model as opposed to the new ones that use the drawbar. It's 2100#, the tractor is rated for 2500#. I know with the smaller 1, 2, 3 series JD way over rates the 3-point hitch capacity for what the frame will do. I also know that the 2500# is 24" behind the lift arms, and this mower is a lot longer then that. So I suspect it won't work, but figured I'd check and see if any of you have tried something this size. He also has iMatch which pushes it a few inches further back as well.




    2017 2038r, 220r loader, 72" MMM, 66" EA Box blade, Woodmax FM-62 flail mower, Artillian forks, JD KBL 6' 1950s discs, subsoiler

    Just an MX-6 on my 44R which is same weight and hydraulic capacity makes the front end very light with loader and bucket in place. Would require weighting front end. I believe it will lift it but in my opinion it is too much implement for tractor.

    I have no experience with either machine you are asking about.

    If you were mowing flat ground, and it was dry everywhere, then you might get by with it. As soon as you have to pick it up, find a wet spot, or try to mow hilly terrain, you will probably have issues maneuvering around.

    When I bought my old Rhino 10ft brush hog last year, I did not think I could lift it with my 4066R, but found out I could. Then discovered it weighed 1700#. Much less than the 2500# of the MX10. I have no problem in lifting the Rhino, but I do not believe I could lift the MX10. The Rhino leaves the front too light to turn unless I have the bucket on the loader. I also have the iMatch. When I bought the Rhino, I had decided if I could not lift it, I would just use it as a 2pt mower and let it run on the rear wheels all the time. You don't really have to utilize the top link. My 110 inch Befco RFM weighs 1500#and the front end is not so light that I cannot turn, however, it definitely feels a little light when on the road.
