    More 3 point lift

    Hi guys,

    I've been having a good time playing (working) with my 1025. I have used a Woods RB60 all winter to plow my driveway, but I have only got about 6" of ground clearance with my top link as short as it will go. I'm wondering if I should have got an L series blade now, but I guess what's done is done. I read a few posts on here before where a guy had added another set of holes to his lift arms to gain some lift? Of course I've been searching and can't find them now. Has anyone else done this?

    Thanks!

    First thing to do is make sure you have the lift arms on the "right" way around. With the hole closer to the tractor you will gain lift height but lose lift capacity.

    OK, I will take one off and see which way they are installed.

    You can also raise the "range of motion" by adjusting this linkage on the right side of the seat under the cover; I forget what it is called. I do this when I hook up my post hole digger to lower the range to get as much drop as possible to make the hole deeper and then the opposite when I use my landscape rake which is not designed for the limited 3PH to be able to lift it as high as possible when raking debris in the bush. Works great.

    I would think a measuring tape, or even a stick and something to mark it with would be quicker...

    I tried measuring quickly, but with blade/iMatch in place, it was too close to tell which way they are.

    I helped my problem with this earlier this week. I ordered another adjustable lift link for the lh side and got rid of the fixed link. By doing this, you can gain about 3.5" at max lift height just by adjusting the links as short as they will go. My lift at the eye on the implement end went from 24" to 27.5". You will lose about 5" on the low side, though.

    I have thought about doing this. To gain back that drop, just unscrew.
