I want to switch my turnbuckle style sway links to a telescoping version with pins.

I know that deer does not sell that option but I’m wondering if there are any aftermarket versions or if I will have to have it fabricated myself

I just watched a video from Messick's about it. perhaps the on from Kobota will fit. I know they are black so it wont stand out.

There are some much better aftermarket versions out there.

Maybe try this outfit:

Yeah, I wouldn’t care what color they are. I have not watched the Messicks video but I watched KNH Tractor’s on YouTube build his own and mention domestics video.

His were for a BX and they were completely different.

I’ll find a Messicks video and double check

True. But he only makes them for certain tractor makes and models. A couple years ago I contacted them about a set for my 2720 and they said they do not make them for my tractor.

I inquired about the stabilworks stabilizers a little over a year ago and Mark said he did make them for the 2038R. He also said they can be painted black or green.

Looks like it might be a winner. I have a set of telescoping lift arms on the way and I’m looking forward to making the hook up process more user-friendly for my baumalight stump grinder

Thanks. I think I’ll just order some.

Did you actually get them or just look into it

I just got on the list also, I am hoping it will allow me to mark the holes for my implements and use in conjunction with my pats quick hitch.

They have been on my to do list for a while, but have been relegated to the "after important stuff category" that goes forgotten sometimes. But now they've been dug up and I might be placing an order as well. :p

If you want them at all I’d say order them now because he said he has a waitlist for several months. You order them now and pay for them when they’re made

I got on the waitlist but I’m still hoping to find another way to get them I know a guy who fabricates so we may do it ourselves
What was the price on these? The website says 200 and up, was it much more than that?
$250

Check HOME | Stabilworks

You might also check some used part places if there is some part that would work from another model or even another brand.

Would I be right assuming that I could pin the sway bars to set positions for certain implements, so I wouldn't have to use the pats spacer bar. Either way it has to be a vast improvement over the turnbuckle!

I have Pats system, and Mark Hodges telescoping links. Pretty much every implement I own, I never had to adjust the telescoping links, to get it to hookup. Some of my implements were/are a little tighter than others, in lower pin width, but I could always get PATs to line up, and easily pick them. Your mileage may vary.
I can't recall ever using the alignment bar, with the telescoping links. I may have lucked out with how the telescoping links were built, I don't know, but it works great.

Just what I wanted to hear. Set it and it works for all the standard implements, but adjustable for the odd balls. Thanks. Only have to wait 6 months, oh well, turnbuckles aren't bad, just could be better.

There was a guy on the 2 series FB group who put a set of Massey stabilizers on his 2038R. A few of us asked which Massey they came off of but he never answered. Don't think he did it intentionally, just a person who had something cool to share and isn't very active in the group. But he did say they bolted right on without any modification.

Pretty much I'd say. Overall, there is enough slop in the entire 3pt system (links, lower arms, sway links, PATs), that you'll have some wiggle room when backing into an implement, and latching onto it.

I am excited to be able to lock the arms into place when I don't have an implement on the back.
