    3pt lift height?

    Finally in the market for a BB for my 1026r. I have a concern on the lifting height of standard cat1 BB vs a limited cat1 BB. Ive read that some guys are barely able to get the implement 4" off the ground with the standard. Is this JD's way of making sure they sell they're Frontier Limited series...are the standards cat1's ok for the 1 series tractors when it comes to lifting and driving. Ill be using it as a ballast box to so this is serious inquiry on my part.

    Thanks

    I had an off name 4' box blade that was designed for cat 0 or cat 1. It raised plenty high for me. I hung suit case weights on a couple of cross bars inside it, worked good for balast but the box got in the way in some tight areas. The land scape rake I have is for standard cat 1. It didn't raise very high and would catch the ground when going uphill or even trying to put it on a trailer. I recomend going with limited cat. 1 implements unless you are using and transporting across perfectly flat land with no hills or ditches.

    One option is to crank the third link up tight and angle the 3 point implement up to give you a little more clearence. It's not ideal when using the implement, but will give you some extra inches.

    I'm torn, rural king has they're king kutter stuff on sale right now, 60" KK for $476+tax or local JD has BB5060L for $749+tax. Save a few hundred and deal with the height issue or spend the extra and get the right implement.

    Based on the points mentioned above as to what you are going to be using it for and where, another consideration is how often will it be used?
    I ask myself that question all the time when trying to decide on buying the better or the cheaper tool etc...if I will you use it often, I always buy the better option that will do the job best!

    My 3pt lifts the 54" ETA BB so that it is 12" off the ground. The ends of the lift arms at full height are 23" off the ground.

    I would see if the manager would let me bring my tractor and hook it up before I bought it. It might be just fine, and if not, don't buy it.

    Easier just to bring a tape measure. First measure how high your lower arms will lift at the ball ends, for mine it is about 23". Then measure the box blade's lower link attachment point. The difference between the two measurements is how high it will lift. Actually due to the geometry it should lift just a bit more, but then hanging hundreds of pounds off the back has a tendency to change things so in the end I think it's a wash.

    Are these height problems only related to the 1026r tractor? I am not familiar with the tractor, but it makes me want to think twice before ever buying some of these new tractors which appear to be more & more hobby or farmer wannabe tractors. Kind of like what has happened to the standard pick up truck which is now useless as a work truck, unless you need something to stuff the two kids into the back seat & the box of corn flakes in the bed & think this is Macho tuff stuff use. Just my own opinion.
