I'm a new owner of a 1026R as of Feb, 2013. I've been looking for an answer for why when I try to reconnect the mower deck with the auto connect and the 3-point hitch in the lower position it doesn't go down all the way to make the connection. I have to get off the tractor, push the 3-point hitch down so it will be low enough for the auto connect to attach to the mower deck. Is there an adjustment that needs to be done? I'm still waiting on the manual for the mower deck from the dealer and have not had a chance to get in touch with them yet. Any suggestions?
