Just got my brand new 2038r with loader backhoe and 72" auto connect mower. What a nice machine! First thing I did was to remove the mower and backhoe to store those for the winter. Then I wanted to put on the rear 3 point hitch for a blast box so I can use the tractor for plowing snow. Problem is I can't put the bottom links on the shaft. I slide the shaft all the way until it hits the wheel rim, then you slide the bushing the opposite direction so the lower arm will fit on the shaft. Problem is the bushing hits on the frame mount for the backhoe and doesn't open enough space for installation of lower arm. Hope I have described this good enough. Anyone with a 2038r knows how to put the arms on. Wondering if anyone has had this same problem with a frame mount for a backhoe getting in the way?
