    mml lift question

    good evening GTT people I have a situation I have MMM lift option my problem is that I want to lift my mower for maximum clearance, then disconnect the hose and switch to the loader so here is the problem
    I cant reconnect the hose for the mower because its under pressure I have to depress the center of the quick connector so I can reconnect . any ideas , this is why I would like to put valves on so I would not have to disconnect or shut the machine off .
    thank you and have a good labor day

    Your symptoms make sense. No matter how you adjust the mower deck linkage, the deck is always going to drop a little bit before it rests on the "Lock" step of the height adjusting cam. This is where your pressure build up in the line is coming from.

    Have you tried cycling the joystick lever to the deck down position, once the mower deck is resting on the "Lock" step of the cam? This should relieve the pressure in line from the lift cylinder, allowing for it to be disconnected easily. However and more importantly, after cycling the joystick to the down position, there should not be any pressure in the line to release, by depressing the coupler dimple, unless a dramatic temperature increase had occurred.

    Thanks ILL try that next time I know I should take off the mower but after I take it off I have to move it out of the way so I have to put the wheels back down pia but I guess I"m spoiled by the ease of change over and just want it better lol

    I did see some adaptors to bolt to the mowing deck so I could move it with the quick loader but it looked like you lose lift on the mower which is low to start with. I know I"m never happy

    I'm not sure which deck you have, the FEL adapters you wrote of are only compatible with the 60" deck. If you're on hard surface or firm grass, you may want to consider Mower Axles. That is what I utilize and they work well. Better yet, a few weeks back a member posted his refined mower axles. Rather than fixed wheels as the Mower Axles, he set his up to accept some stem mount casters. So now he could change direction easily while rolling the deck. It really intrigued me. It will likely be on my list of thing to do this winter.

    Kens bolt on hooks now sells a nice tool that you put on the coupler end and it relieves the pressure so you can couple up.
