Hi guys,
Just got my 2025r, it came with the backhoe attached. I'm putting on the three point hitch for the first time, and I'm pretty sure they gave me the wrong center link. The pin will not go all the way through the bracket on the tractor, and the shaft is too thick to rest in the storage hook. If you could look at the picture of what I received and confirm, or tell me what I've got wrong and I will appreciate it. Unfortunately, my dealer is closed on Saturday afternoons. Thanks- sorry Image is rotated 90 CCW. I can't see how to rotate the image in this forum.

Not sure but I think you need to rotate the top link end for end for starters

Yup, sure looks like they gave you the top link for a larger tractor. Strange how common it seems for people to be given the wrong 3 point components.

Make sure you have the right arms too. 1 series arms look like a 2025R arms but they are different. That is why I place the take off arms in the loader bucket when I install a BH. If its for stock I band the arms with a tag.

My 3-series has the D-handles, my guess is it's from one of those.

My MY17 2032 has/had the D handles. Looks like they gave you a top link for the larger 2 series. May want to check the draft arms as well

My 2018 2025R top-link does not have the D handle and lays in the J hook easily.

Thanks everyone

I reached out to my dealer via email and he called me immediately, even though they were closed. I wasn't expecting that. It was the wrong top link. He met me in town to swap it out with the correct link and everything is working fine. This Land Plane is a BEAST on my driveway.!

Thanks,I asked about this and the dealer said that they were the correct ones because the installer took off the lower link from my tractor when he installed the backhoe and put them in the bucket. He must have grabbed the wrong top link from somewhere else I guess.
