A short while back I bought a 2305 with a rear grader blade. It didn't come with the top link, so I bought the standard length CAT 1 link from Tractor Supply. Yesterday, I hooked everything up, however with the top link adjusted to it's shortest position, the blade is too far pitched forward. Meaning the hitch side of the implement frame is higher than the blade side.
I know that several folks have mentioned that they run these TS links, so I'm scratching my head a little... I assume that I need to find/order a shorter link. I notice that TS has 2 CAT 1 links. A standard length (which is the one that I bought) and an extra long one which obviously I don't need.
Has anyone else ran into this problem before? Does the 2305 require a short top link?
I'm also wondering if this blade that I have is just an odd-ball piece of equipment. I looked the model number up and it's a Howse Implement 4' Grader Blade, model # SXSSGB4.
I'm leaning toward just selling it and buying an JD quick hitch and a better 5' blade, but I'm still concerned about the top link length. It's easy to take one back to the local store, but before I go ordering a different one online, I want to be certain that I'm ordering the right one.
