I have a JD 2210 with a 210 FEL and a Woods BH6000 backhoe. I recently purchased a used 54C belly mower for it and I'm having trouble hooking it up. 3 issues:
1. The BH has a frame that runs all the way to the front of the tractor and hangs down below the frame of the tractor, so the mower doesn't slide under unless I jack up the tractor a bit (easy enough with the FEL) My concern is - will the BH frame also prevent me from raising the MMM deck to maximum height (or maybe at all)?
2. The mower lift arms are not on the tractor. I want to hold off buying new ones until I know the mower will fit/work.
3. The front hanger for the mower doesn't fit on the tractor. I can maybe bang on it a bit so the hanger part will fit, but the locking pin doesn't come anywhere close to any pin holes on my front end. Perhaps because of the beefed-up bumper for the FEL?
Please help! I spent $1,000 for this mower deck, which seems like a pretty good deal since it is in great condition. But I don't want to throw more money at it and have it still not work.
