Well, it looks like I'm one of the lucky few who's experienced the 3 point hitch dropping. With my ballast box connected, it takes less than 1 minute (50 seconds) to drop completely while running. Of course, everything was fine then all of a sudden, the box started dragging on the ground.
I researched the Sticky on the "1026R 3 Point Hitch Dropping" and it sounds like tightening that " #28 Nut" will do the trick. After looking at my 1023E, I could not find where is my #28 Nut from the diagram that was posted on that thread. Could someone please tell me (or show me in a picture) where that nut is??
