    3pt hitch drop speed

    I have a 1023e with weight bracket and 8 john deere suitcase weights. I know there is an adjustment under the seat and I turned it all the way to the right until the 3pt hitch won't go down at all then just cracked it open and it still lowers extremely fast if not feathering the lever. Is this adjustment only for the up travel? I have the mower deck on and sometimes it's just habit to grab the lever to hard and down come the weights in a hurry.

    That ROD (Rate Of Drop) knob should only effect the down speed, not up. If it has no effect, it'll need repair. Are you still under warranty?

    No it's not under warranty. I bought it used. How slow should turning it all the way to the right make it go down?

    In all the way and on the 2320 it will just about stop it. I know it may not be the same for your tractor but I would think it would be close.

    Lock 3-Point Hitch: Rotate drop/lock rate valve knob clockwise until tight.

    If mines cranked shut the 3point will not even lift. It should basically stop down travel.
    I can have 1k pounds out back and drop it so slowly that you barely see it move.

    If this is a problem, then I think I might have the same issue with my 1026r. Turning the knob until it stops will lock up my rotary cutter, but if I crack it back it starts to drop fast, 1/8th turn back and it's crashing down (which is open enough to allow just the weight of the trailer hitch to bring it down). I thought this was normal, but you guys are saying there should be more rotation to the knob for fine tuning the rate of drop?

    I wish I knew the answer to the 1026/1025 issue but don't. Our 2320 has what I would call infinite rate of drop settings and of course the setting is dependent on weight.

    It is very dependent on the weight of the implement. On my 2720, from turned in tight it only takes about 1/4 turn to allow the 3PH arms to go down under their own weight and I barely need to crack it open to allow the 700 lb. ballast box to gently return to Earth.

    Granted I have a 3 series but I have to turn at least 3 full turns to get the empty links to drop and probably 3/4 turn for 900 lbs of ballast to start going down slowly.

    It sounds to me like something is stuck or broke on the 1 series above.
