I recently added a 54" snow thrower with the front quick hitch to my collection of implements for my 2720. Because the quick hitch has different mounting plates, a compatible belly mower mounting kit is included. Unfortunately, the belly mower mounting kit bracket isn't compatible with the mounting plates. As shown in the photo, the bend in the bracket hits the lower edge of the each of the mounting plates. The two faces need to be parallel and butt up against each other.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? What was the solution? Obviously, the mounting plates could be ground to relieve the interference, but wonder if that will reduce their strength.
