    3 point hitch option

    So I bought the 1025r TLB with a 54" mower deck. I am thinking heavily towards a box grader and need to install a 3 point hitch. Anyone have any preference on which kit to get? Worth going JD or better to go with an "off-brand" for price considerations?

    do you mean a quick hitch?



    your dealer should have given you the 3pt arms/top link when you got the tractor.

    Not the quick hitch, the actual draft arms and other 3 point parts. Was thinking that because it is the TLB it didn't include the 3 point attachments (hoe instead). Maybe my assumption is incorrect?


    Hmmm.....just found this!

    ...and when you go to install the draft arms, be advised they can be installed 2 ways as there are different spacing for the lift links. Measure to the ends from the lift link holes, one position gives you extra height, the other gives you more leverage and lifting power but less height.

    It helps to mark the same ends so you don't always mix them up like I used to...

    a little more splaining here. I am about to take the few paving stones out of my ballast box and fill with concrete with a few tool tubes. Would like to know how to change from height to heavy setting.

    Thanks

    If you want height look at the distance the lifting links are from the end of the draft arms. The closer the lifting links are to the tractor side the higher you can lift the three point. The further they are the lower the lift but the higher the leverage so that you can lift more weight.

    Think of the lifting link as a fulcrum, the shorter the distance from the fulcrum the larger the effect on the other end and vice versa.

    I typed the question without looking at the picture or my tractor. Totally forgot about the lifting links and brain farted the draft arms directly to the rock shaft. I feel so dumb but my question pulled my head back to where it belongs and helped others who were about to make the same mistake.
