    3 point hitch wasnt staying up so I brought it to the dealer and they fixed that problem. Now that I put my sb1154 blower back on it seems like I have to move the lever back atleast halfway before it even starts lifting the blower. That normal?

    It just means that the hitch point on the blower is higher.

    Letís say that with nothing on the 3-point hitch, when in the down position, the arms are 18Ē off the ground. Take a look on the blower where the hitch points are. I would bet that they are quite a bit higher. So with the lever just a little bit in the up position the hitch isnít actually lifting anything yet.

    I bet you needed to raise the hitch from its lowest point to line the arms up to hook to the blower.

    Iím sure someone can explain it better - getting my thought into words sometimes escapes me......

    Over thinking stuff is a curse of mine also.
