    "Limited Cat 1" hitch

    Were looking at picking up a 1025 FILB and the specs says the hitch is a "Limited Cat 1". What does that mean in relation to compatible implements?

    The "limited" part refers to lift height. You may not be able to raise some implements high enough to clear the ground, or clear it enough not to snag things. An iMatch raises the lift height a bit.

    Most implements will work fine (e.g. rakes, blades, etc.) and some won't work at all (e.g. the larger plows and other stuff that's just too big for the little tractor).

    When buying 3pt attachments it's important to know what the ground to pin height is.Cat 1 limited needs to be 12" in order to lift high enough.Cat 1 is normally 16".The lift height is about 21" for limited lift,so that only gives you 5-6" of clearance,as opposed to 10" on a 12" pin height.My x595 is cat 1 limited lift.The aerator I just bought has the bottom pins at 12" off the ground.

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.
