    x475 cat. 3 rock shaft (dimensions)

    Recently acquired a x475 AWS to replace my aging but still going strong 345. i need some help with a few questions. The 475 has a category 0 3 point rock shaft. and I have cat. 1 draft links does anyone have a cat.1 rock shaft they would take some measurements for me? i would like to modify the rock shaft to category 1. my main question is how far is the center of the lift eyes from the outside of the rock shaft.

    On my X595 the rockshaft is cat 0. The center link the one end is cat 0 to connect to the rockshaft and cat 1 on the opposite end to connect to the implement.

    I'm not sure you're getting answer you're looking for? On my cat 1 rockshaft, it is ~ 1 5/8" from end of rockshaft to CENTER of lifting eye. Hope that helps. I made a quick measurement with tape measure but no way to get much closer.

    Thanks for the information! that means the cat 3 has shorter lift arms that the cat 1. i will try to post a picture of mine later to confirm.

    In my answer above, I think I misunderstood your request. I was measuring from the end of the rockshaft.

    From the outside diameter of the rockshaft to the center of lifting eye, I measured 5 1/4"

    I have the plugger hooked up now so I can't show the hole sizes. You can see the size difference in the pins though.

    Thank you, that is the dimension I was looking for. that is the same as the cat 0 rockshaft. It looks like all I will have to do is cut the pivots out of it. how long is your upper center link?
